In 1992, Professor Boris Kozolchyk, a foremost international commercial and comparative law scholar, founded NatLaw in Tucson, Arizona. Initially, NatLaw assisted the governments of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) region with the development of standard practices for the implementation of certain aspects of the NAFTA Agreement, such as harmonized transportation regulations. From those humble beginnings, over the past 25 years and under the leadership of its former President and Executive Director, Dr. Boris Kozolchyk, NatLaw has built a stellar reputation within the international community as a leading provider of legal reform services, ranging from researching, drafting, and assisting with the implementation of model commercial laws and regulations, to judicial reform and training.
NatLaw has served as a reliable consultant and trusted partner to entities like the U.S. Department of State, the World Bank Group, USAID, Millennium Challenge Corporation, FSD Kenya, Mexico’s Ministry of the Economy, Chemonics International, Pragma Corporation, and Germany’s Federal Enterprise for International Cooperation (GIZ). NatLaw’s staff and roster of professionals includes some of the world’s most recognized experts in the area of comparative commercial law, and NatLaw’s research covers many substantive areas of commercial law, including: alternative dispute resolution, banking, bankruptcy, business formation and associations, electronic commerce, microfinance, intellectual property, investment securities, judicial reform and training, secured transactions, and transportation.
