Sovereigns, Embassies and Consulates
When Wolf, P.A. was founded in 2009, it was to meet the needs of two types of clients–embassies and international private clients. Their matters were urgent and required an understanding of law, geopolitics and diplomacy. The embassy crisis management model that was the foundation for the firm has since also been used to help other clients involved in business and personal affairs worldwide. Meanwhile, we continue to work with embassies and consulates, as well as international private clients, helping them respond to, manage and prevent crises and emergencies. And, as the firm has evolved, our combination of prosecution experience and global investigations experience, has made us particularly able to help sovereigns with investigations of corruption, due diligence investigations of inbound foreign direct investment, and due diligence investigations in support of outbound investments from sovereign wealth funds.

Development of Embassy Crisis Management
In diplomatic crises and consular emergencies, time is a factor. We developed embassy crisis management, a practice that involves rapid response and effective case management, to improve the handling of cases and to make necessary information available to the relevant departments within the embassy and the stakeholder ministries at home.
Development of an International Students Pilot Project
Cases involving international students are occasionally serious enough to rise to the level embassy or consulate attention. We developed a pilot project to prevent problems, protect students and better respond to incidents.
