    Wendeen H. Eolis established an attorney placement desk in 1967 and founded EOLIS, Inc. the first search firm, exclusively for lawyers, in 1969.

    About EOLIS  

    Wendeen Eolis took her fascination with the legal profession like no one else, in 1967.

    She formed an attorney vetting/placement service in a cramped flat, furnished with little other than a freshly minted philosophy degree from New York University and the spirit of an entrepreneur.

    In 1969, armed with assignments from Cravath Swain & Moore LLP and the New York Port Authority, Wendeen moved her nascent attorney placement business to a formal office space in the heart of Manhattan.

    She was on the road to a global footprint in attorney search and related legal consulting services. 

    Our History in a Nutshell

    Legal search was the first of our four related core businesses that optimize attorney and law firm talent under the umbrella of Eolis International Group. The Company's projects, since inception, have required JD degrees, top tier credentials, experience, and recognition in the legal profession.

    Projects include searches and vetting assignments for C-Suite roles, Board Directors, and senior level Government appointments, as well as traditional attorney searches and vetting assignments for law firms, partner groups, counsel selection, representation of ambitious lawyers with endless aspirations in collaborative career transitions, and legal marketplace consulting services.

    EOLIS is a pioneer, innovator, proven change agent,and leader in the industry.  

    Wendeen H. Eolis, CEO is a certified employment consultant, a certified professional coach (NY1974), and a certified arbitrator (NY1974). 

    In 2017, EOLIS celebrated its fiftieth anniversary, welcoming 3 new members into the EOLIS corporate family.
