From its beginnings, at 52 Vanderbilt Avenue in the heart of Manhattan, EOLIS led the development of the legal search industry and a sea change in attorney hiring practices. With assignments from Cravath Swain & Moore and the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey for starters, the Company evolved quickly into a premier legal consultancy; a boutique with a worldwide footprint.
EOLIS's principal business is optimization of attorney talent; attorney searches/vetting projects, C-Suite/boardroom talent drawn from the legal profession, coaching and career transition planning for the full spectrum of JD credentialed candidates, and legal marketplace consulting which includes expert services and reports.
Led by Wendeen H. Eolis, the founder, and CEO of EOLIS, highly collaborative teams are put in place to connect the Company's creative spirit to the pursuit of excellence. And EOLIS believes that its commitment to diversity fuels broad perspective and continually new-found wisdom.
EOLIS is proud of its history; more than 5,000 assignments completed, and a meticulously curated database that now includes more than 300,000 lawyers.
About our Team
While Wendeen is the public face of the company, she credits her roster of collaborators -- affiliated partners, project directors, and researchers and the Company's robust and highly curated database -- as the Company's most valuable assets.
EOLIS's project management begins with its senior leadership and additional partners drawn from the Company's worldwide network of affiliated consultants and their researchers. Each consulting team reflects both the necessary skills and abilities required and a shared pursuit of excellence.
Researchers are associated with top universities and bring to the table sophisticated skills in data mining and database management. EOLIS also maintains a law student intern and mentor program that allows law students to do a single-day research project during law school inter-sessions.
