Vetting Services

    EOLIS's experience in vetting lawyers and law firms spans five decades--reviewing credentials, expertise,  experience,  compensation of lawyers and law firms and client satisfaction. We do two types of vetting; references authorized by the subject and   "due diligence  requests" by a law firm hiring committees, General Counsels  C-Suites and notably, in connection with corporate board seats and senior level government appointments.

    Reference reports are based on pre-set parameters mutually agreed between employer and subject and are performed in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, including provisions of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Due Diligence Reports include material obtained from Print, broadcast and digital sources, interviews, and a review of relevant material in our proprietary  data  base.

    Our vetting process focuses not only on information provided by sources, but on the knowledge and possible bias of  sources. Our vetting projects finclude evaluations of prospective employees, partners, outside counsel and corporate board director candidates with JD degrees

    We provide oral reports  in  conference with the appropriate parties.
