Former Attorney General John Ashcroft is starting a consulting company that will advise clients on homeland security, law enforcement and other issues involving business and government.

The company, based in Washington, will provide strategic consulting, crisis counseling and security and internal investigative services to corporations and other organizations, a company spokeswoman said Sunday.

Ashcroft spent four years as the nation’s chief law enforcement officer under President Bush. Much of Ashcroft’s time was devoted to the fight against terrorism in the aftermath of the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

He also was a two-term Missouri governor and one-term senator.
