Warner Partner Authors Commentary on Michigan Uniform Principal and Income Act

Mark K. Harder, a partner with the law firm Warner Norcross + Judd LLP, has authored a commentary for Michigan’s Uniform Principal and Income Act.

Enacted in 2004 and last amended in 2012, the act is one of a series of model statutes made available to individual states as part of a broader national effort to encourage consistency and uniformity in state laws.  Harder’s commentary, which is the first written for the Michigan act, explains key terms and provisions of the legislation, which provides guidance and requirements for those who administer ongoing trusts.

Harder chairs the firm’s Family Office Practice Group and concentrates his practice in trusts and estates law.  He recently co-authored the 2015 edition of Estates and Protected Individuals Code with Reporters’ Commentary for the Institute of Continuing Legal Education with Warner partner John H. Martin.

From 2003 until 2010, Harder led the effort to draft the Michigan Trust Code, which governs how trusts are established and administered in the state. The MTC provides a single-source, comprehensive and modern body of law to govern trusts.

Harder has received numerous accolades for his legal work, including election to the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel and being named to Best Lawyers in America and Michigan Super Lawyers.
