Mr. Wolf is a former senior partner with the law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P. where he practiced from 1959 until his retirement from the firm in 2003.  While practicing at Fulbright, he chaired the Committee on Securities and Investment Banking, as well as the Section on Corporation, Banking and Business Law of the State Bar of Texas.  His practice involved a number of industries, including extensive work in the energy industry, and was primarily focused on corporate and securities matters, including mergers and acquisitions, finance, international law and restructuring.  He chaired the firm's Corporate department from 1977-84. Mr. Wolf has also served on or chaired a number of public, private and charitable boards of directors – including Stewart & Stevenson and Offshore Logistics – and as a partner of various companies.  He currently serves on the board of Simmons & Company International, a private investment banking and securities firm specializing in the energy industry.

Mr. Wolf is a founding partner of Lobo Leasing, a helicopter leasing company; a director and part owner of Recovery Direct, Inc., a producer of films and videos used in the treatment of substance abuse, and of Orleans Capital Management, an investment management company; and acting Chairman of Falcon Seaboard Company, a private investment company focused on the energy, technology, real estate and agriculture sectors.  He received a Bachelor of Business Administration and a JD, with honors, from The University of Texas at Austin.
