Welcome to a world where challenges are met with creativity, strategy, and above all, results.

Background: Our client is a successful businessperson in his early-50s with a strong interest in international relations, an in-depth knowledge in international business, vast business interests in both Europe and Asia, and a net-worth of 12 Million EUR. He is based in a country in Europe where there is an already appointed Honorary Consul from his country of origin.

Motivation: His interest in fostering better cultural and business ties between countries and gaining access to government networks.

Path to Appointment

  1. He hired our firm and we reviewed his client profile.
  2. After our in-house panel approved of him, we looked at his resume to match it with jurisdictions that would consider him a valuable asset. We made contact with multiple jurisdictions including the one we thought such jurisdiction would consider him a valuable person who could provide a solution to one of that country's greatest problem it was facing.
  3. We put him through our entire process (that took a little over 4 weeks) and lodged his application in four countries.
  4. We received 3 rejections and 1 feedback from the country we considered the highest chances of approval who wanted to get more information. We sent the requested additional documentations and references. After that, we continuously followed up with that government’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and eventually, our client was issued a letter of invitation for an in-person interview.
  5. The interview was a success and our client managed to secure his appointment after the government conducted another due diligence on him.

Appointment and Responsibilities

Official Appointment: After a thorough vetting process, he was officially appointed as the honorary consul of Country X in City X.

Responsibilities:
- He represents Country X in business forums and cultural events.
- Assists citizens of Country X in his area.
- Works on enhancing bilateral trade and cultural ties.

Challenges:

Getting our client a diplomatic appointment was initially highly improbable, simply because of the geographical location he was based in. The area already had a lot of non-career diplomats and the chances of approval from the specific jurisdiction we matched him was not going to happen. We leveraged a different consular circumscription in order for him to achieve his dream.

Achievements:

Cultural Exchange:

He organizes various cultural events that significantly boost understanding and appreciation of Country X's culture.

Business Initiatives:

He facilitates several key business deals between companies in Country X and another country he used to do business before his appointment and able to gain access to networks in the highest (governmental) level.

Background:
Our client, a late 50s individual, had an extensive portfolio of international real estate, managed via offshore corporations, with a total net worth of approximately $38 million.

Concern:
The primary concern was the associated leaks that had our client worried; something which nobody was able to prepare, at least, until now. He also had a ex-investor partner who knew what kind of assets he owned through his offshore corporations. We assured him that we had the solution where he could leverage his newly acquired identity, under which he can own those assets.

Objectives:
The goal was to shield our client's assets from unexpected liabilities, such as information breaches, and secure his financial future. This was achieved by facilitating the ownership of assets under a new, undisclosed identity, thereby reducing the risk of exposure linked to his original identity and the associated offshore corporations.

Path to Success:

Analysis:

Key to our strategy was a thorough understanding of the client's existing real estate structure. Collaboration with his tax planner and trust strategist was vital to ensure all actions were compliant and served the rights of our client’s privacy to the fullest extent.

Creative Process:

After evaluating the client's profile, we crafted three legally viable strategies, each with different cost implications and estimated time frames. We presented these options to the client and his attorneys, addressing his and his advisors' inquiries to determine the most suitable approach.

Execution Stage:

The client opted for the most cost-effective strategy, chosen not due to budget constraints but for its perceived effectiveness and ease of compliance by his advisors. This phase, which took 2.5 years, involved navigating multiple legal jurisdictions and successfully establishing two distinct legally obtained identities.

Challenges:

A significant hurdle was identifying legal jurisdictions that met both the client's needs and privacy requirements. Implementing appropriate protocols while maintaining consistent communication with various governments and the client's legal team was challenging, especially with varying government processing times. Nonetheless, our firm managed to complete the project within the expected timeline and budget.

Achievements:

The outcome for our strategic planning in legal second identity creation allowed our client to anonymously own assets. This anonymity, referred to as the “John Doe” identity, ensures his name and assets remain protected, even in the event of any data leaks in the future. Furthermore, these assets (once known by his investor partner) are no longer owned and managed by his original identity and through those layers of offshore corporations. This proactive asset protection strategy stands as the most robust safeguard for our client's assets, representing the pinnacle of asset protection at modern times.

Background:

The subject of our case study is an international businessman in his mid-40s, who encountered significant reputation damage due to various incidents.
Firstly, he had a serious arrest record, although the charges were eventually dismissed by the court.

Secondly, a tumultuous relationship ended in a public fallout, with his former partner, a notable social media personality, launching a campaign of negative publicity against him through fake accounts which –  of course – he could not prove. Despite spending considerable money on reputation management services (note to reader: this is not what we do), the impact of this digital smear campaign remained significant.

Thirdly, his situation was further complicated by allegations from a former business associate, who accused him publicly of financial misconduct. These claims, while never brought up in court, further marred his public image, especially as his ex-partner later aligned with this social media celebrity lady.

It is important to note that we don’t give right or wrong to anyone about this story, we are telling you about the case that was presented to us.

Concern:

Our client's professional life as an international businessman suffered immensely due to the widespread negative information available about him online and in court. This made conducting business in new circles nearly impossible, as his reputation preceded him, leading him to seek our specialized services.

Objectives:

Our task was to construct a new identity for our client, enabling a fresh start and opening doors to opportunities that had been long shut. The objective was to ensure his potential clients and business associates would encounter no negative information about him, thus avoiding the need for him to repeatedly defend his past before establishing professional relationships.


Path to Success
:

Analysis:

We commenced with a thorough analysis of the legal aspects of his past involvements, exploring jurisdictions where his criminal record would not pose a barrier. Working closely with local legal experts, we sought to identify locations where his application for a legally acquired new identity would be most favorably received. Our aim was to maximize the likelihood of a successful outcome, understanding that certainty in such matters is never guaranteed.

Creative Process and Execution Stage:

After developing a legal strategy for acquiring a new identity, we presented our client with two viable options. He chose the quicker, albeit costlier, solution. The process, spanning eight months, involved preparing and filing necessary documents and securing legally valid identity documentation for our client.

Challenges:

The primary challenge was navigating the implications of our client's arrest record. We successfully procured the required documentation, leading to its acceptance by the relevant authorities without additional queries. Once this hurdle was cleared, the remainder of the process proceeded smoothly.

Achievements:

Our client has successfully reinvented his life. He now conducts business without facing undue scrutiny or invasive personal inquiries. His new identity bears no trace of his previous legal troubles for the public; allowing him to engage socially and professionally without the burden of his past. In his words, reflecting on our services, he expressed profound gratitude for the new beginning we facilitated:

“I truly can’t explain how it feels like living a normal life. It is so sad that I was no longer used to it. You have no idea what this means to me and I can’t adequately express the effect it had on my life and how grateful I am to you for the rest of my life for making this happen!!”
