EOLIS was founded in 1967 by Wendeen H. Eolis, as an attorney seach desk. In 1969, with seed money from two assignments---one from Cravath Swaith & Moore and the other from the New York Port Authority---Wendeen established the first executive search firm exclusively for practicing lawyers.  

A leading pioneer in the development of related legal consulting services, Wendeen established Eolis International Group to grow her multi-pronged consultancy specializing in top level attorney searches, career transitions and outside counsel management. 

EOLIS stands as the inventor of the legal search industry as a pioneer with a singular niche practice in legal counsel reviews, and as an innovator in attorney career management services. Wendeen's considerable negotiating experience in the legal profession led to EOLIS' decision to expand its footprint in the 1980's to include coaching of CEO's and other senior management and government officials.
