Ann Robinson Appointed to Uniform Law Commission Study Committee on Data Breach Notification

Uniform Law Commission (ULC) President Anita Ramasastry has appointed Pierce Atwood partner Ann R. Robinson as a member of the Study Committee on Data Breach Notification. 

According to the ULC website, the committee “will study the need for and feasibility of state legislation on data breach notification. The committee will consider the personal information that should be protected and the methods and manner of notice.”  

Ann is a highly regarded Maine attorney and lobbyist who is an active member of Pierce Atwood’s Government Relations, Health Care, and Privacy & Data Security Practice Groups. As a member of the Privacy group, which has extensive experience assisting clients in the data breach notification area, Ann is well-positioned to provide valuable insights and guidance with respect to the regulatory compliance challenges facing organizations as a result of the different requirements set forth in the myriad state data breach notification laws in the U.S. 

Ann is currently one of Maine’s four commissioners on the Uniform Law Commission. In that capacity, she served on ULC’s study committee and drafting committee that led to the Uniform Employee and Student Online Privacy Protection Act. 

Ann is a member of the Board of the Maine Turnpike Authority and on the Board of Directors of the Olympia Snowe Women’s Leadership Institute. Ann is a graduate of Brown University and the University of Maine School of Law.  

The Uniform Law Commission (ULC) serves states and their citizens by drafting state laws on subjects on which uniformity across the states is desirable and practicable. It is a nonprofit unincorporated association comprised of state commissioners from each state, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The ULC is the nation’s oldest state governmental association.  A nonpartisan, volunteer organization, the ULC is the source of more than 300 acts that secure uniformity of state law when differing laws would undermine the interests of citizens throughout the United States.
