- Holland Manners
Founded in 2012, Wolfram and Hart is NationStates’ first and oldest law firm. We are committed to providing high-quality solutions for our clients. We achieve this through recruiting and developing high-calibre individuals throughout the firm.
Wolfram and Hart can help with your region's legal needs.
We can review your draft constitution or legislation, identifying any parts which lack clarity, or are contradictory.
See our Constitution Clinic for examples of what we do.
Many regions have constitutions and / or laws, which are enforced by their Regional Officers. Being active members of their communities, and with a stake in the region's smooth running, an RO’s judgment can suffer from unintended bias.
By providing independent legal opinion to plaintiffs, defendants, and ROs, Wolfram and Hart's legal team aim to:
- reduce animosity between involved nations
- increase the transparency of proceedings
- increase the fairness of proceedings
Many regions fall into difficulties due to their founder ceasing to exist. Founderless regions can be prone to raids. Wolfram and Hart offer a service to help avoid this. Founders can entrust their password to Wolfram and Hart, along with instructions as to how this should be used in the event that they CTE. Typically, the first step would be to revive the founder nation, then to entrust the password to an heir of the founder's choice.
Tag raids are annoying, but not permanent. If you need help detagging, our experienced team can help.
