About the Firm

In business and in life, these principles guide all that we do:

1. Integrity
2. leadership
3. results
4. entrepreneurship
5. Excellence
6. agility

We believe the true character of an organization or a leader is revealed by adversity. Bad things can happen to good people and honest people can make mistakes. Leaders and organizations committed to integrity will thrive in even the toughest situations. We have also seen organizations choose a different path and suffer the consequences of their decisions.

That’s one reason why we personally treat maintaining our and our clients’ integrity as a specific commitment – and why we only advise leaders and organizations who share a similar commitment.

Former U.S. Attorney General, Governor and Senator John Ashcroft serves as the firm’s founder. Together with the select group of seasoned, respected and experienced senior executives he recruited to join him—many of whom helped to lead the U.S. Department of Justice during a significant time in our nation’s history—the Firm has earned a reputation for integrity and a track record for accelerating successful resolutions of even the most complex matters.
