John Norwood, President of Spa and Pool Industry Education Council (SPEC) announced today that the law firm of Michelman & Robinson will act as the general counsel to the association. Michelman & Robinson have offices in Los Angles, Orange County, San Francisco, New York and New Jersey. The Firm is also opening a Capitol office in Sacramento with its newest partner William “Bill” Gausewitz. Mr. Gausewitz was formerly the Director of the Office of Administrative Law in Sacramento. In this capacity Bill presided over the final review of regulations proposed by all state agencies.

“Michelman & Robinson and Bill Gausewitz, particularly, are a perfect fit for SPEC,” said Norwood. “Bill is an expert in government regulations and has a long history of involvement in government affairs in Sacramento. Because of his background, Bill is a natural choice to have available to review and/or challenge any proposed state regulation or local ordinance. Michelman & Robinson have offices in key California cities where they will be available to assist SPEC if need be on local issues.”

“Michelman & Robinson is pleased to serve as SPEC’s general counsel. We have collaborated with John on a number of projects that have resulted in tremendous success, and we are confident that we will experience the same outcome in our new role as the association’s general counsel.
