Pacific International

Worldwide Risk Management

We provide effective global strategic and tactical Risk Mitigation resources for multi-nationals corporations, emerging companies, governments, and non-governmental organizations.

Business Intelligence and Investigation:  political and economic risk reporting, commercial and competitive intelligence is best left to professionals whose background and training prepares them for the task.  Our specialists are former intelligence officers and professional investigators as well as attorneys on several continents.  These are the ones who have successfully transitioned from national security to commercial strategic and tactical intelligence operations.  Their successes are infrequently known, which is as it should be.  Suffice it to say the Fortune 100 has benefited from their work.

Corporate Due Diligence:  whether evaluating a joint venture partner, strategic ally, or considering a Managing Director, whether considering a purchase of patented technology or investing in a new line of products or services, the term Due Diligence appears writ large these days.  The term has expanded beyond its original meaning and now has regulatory and legal implications, the creation of liability for those who undertake it inadequately or who omit steps.  Due to its extreme importance we have focused on it as a service offering to the point of developing Due Diligence to an art.  It is actually a discipline, and we take its impact and potential consequences to heart in offering the highest possible standards of execution.

Security Management and Advisory:  whether providing close security to executives and their families in Brazil, to protecting a plant from labor unrest in Southeast Asia, from the oil fields of war zones to protection of transport convoy in other war zones, from peacekeeping to advising corporations, our team is highly experienced and skilled.  We are a military oriented and favorable company, with veteran-owned and operated status, from all branches of the US Military.  We have extensive experience from individual protection to massive operations, and we have absent friends, whose lives were lost in the line of duty, exemplifying the highest ideals of courage and the greatest sacrifice.

Crisis and Emergency Management:  preparedness is not always available.  When the crisis hits a plan must often be hastily implemented by industry, to include security, operations, transportation, medical, and extremely importantly, public relations.  Our teams come with plans for virtually every contingency, and still retain the flexibility to adapt to changing and deteriorating circumstances.  Often the messaging is the most difficult matter, as shareholders, local press, and business relations may be casualties unless the right word gets out.  Our commercial and yet military orientation allows us to be where we need to be, and where we are needed most, without loss of the big picture as it may be seen from corporate.  This capacity for commercial vision without loss of tactical and operational urgency is unique and we are proud to offer it to our clients.
