Sovereigns, Embassies and Consulates
When Wolf Global’s predecessor firm 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 been used to help other clients involved in business and personal affairs worldwide. Meanwhile, we have taken our embassy relationships global to help governments respond to, manage and prevent problems around the world; investigate, remediate and prevent corruption; conduct due diligence investigations of inbound foreign direct investment and in support of outbound investments from sovereign wealth funds; and to successfully plan and execute government projects.

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.
