Andy Cashman and Preti Legislative Team Selected to Lobby for Maine Association of REALTORS®

Preti Flaherty has been chosen by the Maine Association of REALTORS® (MAR), in a highly competitive RFP process, to provide lobbying services in the upcoming session of the 128th Maine Legislature.

MAR leadership voted to select attorney Andy Cashman to serve as the Association’s lobbyist. Cashman, an attorney practicing out of the firm’s Augusta office, has been active in Maine politics for over a decade.  He has been twice recognized by his peers for his lobbying experience, honored in 2016 and 2017 as a New England Rising Star in lobbying in Super Lawyers.

In this role, he will work closely with MAR’s advocacy team, and other members of the Preti Flaherty Maine Legislative Team, to support the legislative priorities of the trade association and its membership— 4,500 Maine REALTORS® and 450 affiliate members representing businesses and professions with related real estate interests.

Preti Flaherty’s Maine Legislative Team is the largest of its kind in Maine, with the breadth and depth of experience necessary for lobbying work of this nature. In addition to this new engagement, the Team works on behalf of a long list of clients, monitoring important legislation and securing legislative victories with a comprehensive approach across all three branches of government that leverages relationships developed over decades of Maine legislative work.
