When we help our attorney candidates, we work primarily with key decision-makers — managing partners, practice group leaders or lateral hiring partners. We do not disclose your identity to prospective employers without your approval. We know what it’s like to work at the employers we represent and that information comes directly from many long-term relationships with law firm and corporations, and from many other sources.


Stuart TenHoor Legal Search directs law firm partners, practice groups and smaller-sized law firms on how best to search for and select the right fit among potential law firm suitors. Further, our company instructs law firm clients on the strategic hiring of partners, integrated practice groups and even entire law firms.


Stuart TenHoor has placed attorneys in a large number of legal practice areas since his start in the legal search business in 1988. Specialty areas include  food & drug; employment/labor; government contracts and construction law; health care, insurance coverage and trusts & estates.  With almost 30 years of experience placing lawyers in many of the AM Law 200 law firms, our market knowledge is broad and deep.  Simply put, we deliver outstanding opportunities to our candidates because we know the market.

Our purpose is to help every attorney better achieve their professional goals
