Satoko has incredible experience as an attorney and a true passion for food law. We are thrilled to have her on the Food Law Firm team!
Here is Satoko’s bio:
Satoko Kato has more than ten years of experience working at a top global law firm in New York and Tokyo. There, she represented multinational corporations in connection with securities offerings, public disclosure and compliance. She also represented clients in investigations by the Department of Justice in alleged Sherman Act violations.
An omnivore enthusiastic of good food and drinks, she attended culinary school and interned at a commercial kitchen incubator where she became highly inspired by the energy of food entrepreneurs and the unique food and beverages they are bringing to the market. In the course of communicating with food entrepreneurs, she felt that there is a market to be served in providing good legal counseling. She aspires to channel her skills and experience into the food and beverage and agriculture industries.
Satoko earned her J.D. from the Georgetown University Law Center and is an LL.M. candidate in Agricultural and Food Law at the University of Arkansas. She is excited to be working at Foscolo & Handel PLLC.
