About The Warnath Group

The Warnath Group is a unique boutique global advisory firm. We offer a suite of specialist services centering on training and advisory services on human trafficking, international women’s economic empowerment and emerging human rights issues.

The Warnath Group is a firm of professionals with deeply rooted experience in the law, policy and practice of addressing human trafficking and related issues enabling us to provide specialized high quality expert advice and training, tailored to fit each client’s needs.

We have worked with leading companies, governmental institutions, law firms, foundations, and prominent individuals providing strategic advisory services, customized training, professional/technical skill development and assessment. Our unparalleled level of expertise enables us to work with these leaders in the public and private sectors in the United States and around the world to offer smart, innovative and effective design and solutions on these complex issues.

From our founding by Stephen Warnath —  a lawyer and former White House staffer who held the first high-level United States government position, created in the late 1990’s, dedicated solely to the creation and development of U.S. and international law and policy of human trafficking — the Warnath Group has grown to over twenty-five professionals working in the United States and internationally united by their unmatched professional experience in analyzing, consulting and training on law, policy and programmatic engagement on human trafficking and related issues.

The Warnath Group team includes former White House and other high-level government officials who served at the forefront of the development of law and policy on these and related issues, former State Attorneys General (with experience addressing human trafficking and victims of crime issues), former federal prosecutors, attorneys with experience in civil matters arising from human trafficking cases, as well as CSR advisors and leading advisors and trainers in the field of service provision for victims of human trafficking.

The Warnath Group is used by the U.S. State Department (J/TIP) to provide training and technical assistance to government officials and other professionals combating human trafficking in countries around the world. We are the federal government’s largest U.S.-based provider of customized advanced training and technical assistance on human trafficking. The State Department selected the Warnath Group to help strengthen Haitian institutional and civil society capacity to respond to human trafficking and to support the Government of Haiti’s efforts to develop comprehensive anti-trafficking legislation. Other countries where we have most recently provided professional skills-based training and/or technical assistance include Turkey, Greece, Peru, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Tonga, Kiribati, Malaysia, Togo, Ghana, Mongolia, Djibouti, Portugal, Myanmar, and Barbados.
