Augusta, Maine (PRWEB) December 10, 2012
Preti Flaherty attorney Ann R. Robinson has been appointed by Governor Paul LePage to represent Maine as a member of the Uniform Laws Commission, a national non-profit association of the fifty states and two US territories.
The Uniform Laws Commission, also known as the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, works to generate and promote non-partisan legislation, with a goal of improving the consistency of laws across state lines. The stated mission of the Commission is to study and review the laws of the states to determine which areas of law should be uniform. There are only 300 members and all must be attorneys – Maine currently has three seats on the Commission.
“Ann’s appointment is a great honor and an important recognition of her accomplishments in public service and in her work as a legislative and regulatory attorney,” said Jon Piper, Managing Partner of Preti Flaherty.
Ann R. Robinson is a partner at Preti Flaherty and the Chair of the firm’s Government Affairs Practice Group. In addition to her legal work, Ann has been active in public service. She is currently serving as a member of the Governor’s Judicial Review Committee, Maine Public Broadcasting Board of Trustees and the Maine State Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. Ann previously has served as a director of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston, as a member of the Maine Human Rights Commission and as a Co-Chair of Governor LePage’s Transition Team.
