Andrew Hamilton serves as the Chair of the Economic Development & Government Relations Practice Group at Eaton Peabody. Andy has counseled private and municipal clients in Maine regarding economic development, land use and environmental permitting, compliance, and enforcement matters. This experience has provided an understanding of the incentives and enforcement tools available to local, State and federal agencies and how best to counsel clients in light of those tools; this understanding has deepened with the advent of remedies and approaches used by third party monitors and environmental advocacy groups in their work with the agencies. Mr. Hamilton has 28 years experience in land use, environmental and natural resource matters, working with private sector, municipal, and quasi-municipal clients. Andy grew up in Caribou, Maine, attended the University of Maine Law School and, before that, pursued a joint major in Government and Economics from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT.
Andy serves on the leadership team of Mobilize Eastern Maine, whose concept is to develop economic strategy based on our region’s current strengths and assets.
