The committees' willingness to hear recommendations by various professionals who will be impacted by a proposed law helps build confidence in both the process and any resulting legislation.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) November 14, 2017
Andrea L. Pawlak, a partner at the Atlanta-based law firm of Schulten Ward Turner & Weiss, LLP, recently provided testimony before the Georgia House of Representatives Committee on Banks and Banking and the Georgia Senate Committee on Banking and Financial Institutions. Pawlak spoke about legal issues related to HB 441, which relates to self-settled spend-thrift trusts.
Pawlak’s comments, part of which are available here, focused on the risk of abuse in the proposed law and provided examples illustrating the potential for fraudulent transfers. Pawlak believes that having practicing attorneys provide input into proposed laws is an important way to ensure they are written fairly and operate to protect the interests of all persons and entities affected by their passage. “Any proposed law should look to balance the competing interests of individuals, businesses, and governmental entities,” said Pawlak. “The committees' willingness to hear recommendations by various professionals who will be impacted by a proposed law helps build confidence in both the process and any resulting legislation.”
