    • Completed Inquiry Forms are required for consideration of specific searches.
    • Candidate qualifications are discussed with clients, based on the requirements of the search.
    • Qualified candidate prospects meet with EOLIS’s senior leadership before any meeting with an EOLIS client.

    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.

    Opportunistic Placement Recruiting--On Occasion

    EOLIS clients are invited to list their long-range search goals for our review and discussion with qualified candidates not under consideration for another EOLIS search opportunity. Opportunistic searches are available on a contingency fee basis only to current and previous EOLIS clients, and in accordance with EOLIS's standard contingency fee schedule provisions.
