International Section Advisor: Todd Kocourek

This month, the NNA’s International Section reported on why mortgage fraud in Canada is hitting record levels, the new U.K. agency in charge of screening identities at border crossings and the increase in overseas assignments for employees of international firms. To deliver this level of industry-specific information to Notaries, the NNA has developed a distinguished Advisory Panel for each of its six Professional Sections. In this Advisor Spotlight, we introduce you to International Section Advisor Todd Kocourek.

A Founding Trustee of the National Association of Civil Law Notaries (NACLN), attorney Todd Kocourek was instrumental in developing the Civil Law Notary system in Florida to help resolve issues with documents sent between Florida and foreign countries. Kocourek himself served as one of Florida’s first Civil Law Notaries, and in 2003 was honored with the NNA’s March Fong Eu Achievement Award for pioneering this new type of international notarial office in the state.

Kocourek is a former chair of the Florida Bar’s International Law Section and the Florida Chamber of Commerce’s International Business Committee. He also served on the Board of Directors of the Florida Economic Development Council from 2003-2011.
