Lien Law for Design Professionals On the Governor's Desk.   On December 28, 2010, the Massachusetts Senate enacted an amended version of S.2512, a lien law for design professionals.  This last legislative step sent the bill to Governor Patrick's desk, where it is being reviewed.  We've been in contact with Governor's legislative office advocating for him to sign this bill this week.  We'll update you soon.
