The law is set to take effect Jan. 1, but there’s one big problem: hardly anyone, including advisers like CPAs and lawyers, knows about it, according to a new Wolters Kluwer survey. “Across the board, there just hasn’t been the kind of campaign necessary to raise awareness of this,” Ross Aronowitz, vice president of the CT Corporation Law Firm segment at Wolters Kluwer, told Law.com’s Hugo Guzman.
