Food and Drug Law

Broad and Deep Experience


Stuart TenHoor has nearly 30 years of experience as a legal search consultant in the greater Washington D.C. metropolitan area.  He has consulted to law firms and corporations on their lateral hiring goals and helped them find appropriate FDA legal talent.  He also works frequently with FDA legal practitioners in seeking the best employment fit for their evolving professional goals.

Since the number of food and drug attorneys capable of creating or expanding law firm FDA practices is relatively small, the demand for those available remains strong and has continued to increase.  Further, since approximately 25% of every consumer dollar spend in the U.S. is for products regulated by the FDA, it is certain that demand will remain strong for top food and drug legal talent.

In 2013, Stuart published An Overview of Food and Drug Law Practices for Update Magazine, a complete analysis of the opportunities for food and drug attorneys in this life sciences space.  Stuart is also very involved in the Food and Drug Law Institute (FDLI).  He has sponsored multiple FDLI conferences, was part of a career webinar produced by FDLI and has spoken at conferences on multiple occasions.  His most recent presentation was on "How to make Career Connections in Life Sciences".

In April 2016 STLS placed an entire FDA practice group with King and Spalding’s Washington, DC office.
