Our Proprietary Consultancy, T.R.A.D.E., Ltd.
Our proprietary consultancy, T.R.A.D.E., Ltd., collaborates with our
law firm to provide specialized regulatory consulting services to clients
seeking foreign government regulatory compliance and technical standard
certification for their regulated products or services.
T.R.A.D.E. also assists clients in efforts to become certified suppliers
to key multinational corporations like Toyota, Boeing and Intel, often
multi-year efforts involving all aspects of the client’s company.
For instance, telecom Ministries in Japan, Europe and worldwide strictly
regulate telecom products and services, often in non-transparent ways.
Similarly, governments worldwide impose unusual, non-transparent requirements
on construction materials, requiring companies to expend considerable
effort to obtain, translate, decipher and eventually to submit applications
for compliance certification, often to government or quasi-government
bodies that are hostile to non-domestic suppliers.
Miyoko Katabami, Managing Director of T.R.A.D.E., Ltd., directs our

efforts. Managing multinational teams of translators, engineers and technical
experts, Ms. Katabami has successfully managed regulatory compliance
