Prepared for the unthinkable by anticipating the unimaginable:
International Consular and Corporate Crisis Management Solutions.
Being caught in a foreign crisis can be a terrifying experience.
Corporations, organizations and individuals are exposed to increased risks of abuse at the hands of corrupt and authoritarian governments. Foreigners are often indiscriminately detained in order to obtain leverage in political or commercial disputes. Ofelas’s expert advocacy and global network can help find solutions in challenging situations where governments cannot or will not. We work in complex situations and extreme environments that demand sensitivity to local conditions to maximize the likelihood of a positive outcome. Ofelas applies targeted pressure at every angle, including mobilizing third party support and implementing media campaigns, all aimed at freeing those unjustly detained or imprisoned.
When Governments Can't Help
When government consular duties break down, Ofelas can help maintain pressure to help achieve the best possible outcome.
