    Counsel Searches

    EOLIS helps clients search for suitable law firm representation, special counsels, and the replacement of conflicted counsels. EOLIS also reviews relationships between in-house lawyers and outside law firms to evaluate opportunities for improvement.

    Search Fees

    EOLIS attorney searches and vetting projects are retainer-based activities. This provides clients with the necessary allocation of time and effort to identify, court, and vet true superstars with the requisite chemistry to fit the needs of the anticipated role.

    EOLIS retainer-based search clients may also list with us "opportunistic searches" for which we can provide services pursuant to our contingency placement fee schedule.

    In addition, during the first week of each quarter, EOLIS promotes its search services by inviting AmLaw 200 and NLJ 500 firms to register their lateral partner opportunistic recruiting efforts for consideration of a contingency placement fee. The Company typically accepts placement assignments with firms that anticipate significant growth and express potential interest in future retainer-based searches.
