Jarrett Wolf


A former prosecutor, Special Agent, and partner in a boutique international law firm that offered global clients the services and strategies necessary to guard wealth, reputation and privacy, Jarrett Wolf combines litigation and trial experience with global investigations and crisis management experience, to find and create solutions to complex, often unprecedented, situations and crises. 

His clients include multinational corporates, international banks and financial firms, governments, private clients, and law firms.  He has handled matters in jurisdictions across the U.S. and involving more than 45 countries, including Hong Kong, Monaco, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Arab Emirates.

Jarrett is recognized in Chambers Litigation Support, Business Intelligence and Investigations USA Nationwide, Band 1, and Chambers Crisis and Risk Management, Crisis Management USA Nationwide, Band 2.


Jarrett’s experience includes the prevention of international incidents; legal and investigative responses to government investigations, arrests, and prosecutions; corporate investigations of fraud, bribery, corruption, money laundering, sanctions violations, extortion, and misconduct; internal investigations which have resolved corporate crises; investigations in multi-million dollar litigation and arbitration; and international investigative due diligence in multi-million dollar deals.


Jarrett began his career as an Assistant State Attorney in Miami where he co-founded the State Attorney’s Gang Prosecution Unit; investigated and prosecuted cases involving street gangs, drug gangs, violent organized crime, murder, attempted murder, ship invasions, drug trafficking, and armed robbery; wrote the first warrant in Florida authorizing a search for gang evidence; litigated and obtained the first court order in Florida admitting gang evidence at trial; tried gang cases involving multiple co-defendants and occasionally, for evidentiary reasons, requiring multiple juries; authored several manuals and presented at national conferences on investigations and prosecutions.

Jarrett was later recruited by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration as a Special Agent and spent the next several years investigating international drug trafficking organizations. He was the case agent for DEA’s international investigation of a Consolidated Priority Organization Target for which he received the DEA Administrator’s Award, the U.S. Attorney’s Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award, the DEA Exceptional Performance Award, and the International Narcotic Enforcement Officers’ Association’s International Award of Honor.

In 2006, he joined Ferrell Law, P.A. as a partner in the firm’s litigation practice and, in 2009, founded Wolf, P.A. and Group One Consulting, which evolved to create Wolf Global.


Jarrett has been a presenter at more than 40 conferences and seminars, speaking on crisis management, international investigations, and corporate investigations, and he has authored several articles and manuals on best practices.
