Anne Walsh Director & hiring partner, Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, Washington, D.C.

“Stuart contacted me highlighting the general opportunity in the FDA world. I had just reached a decision to look at options so the timing was ideal. He found all the FDA partner level opportunities for me very quickly and was careful to vet a few particular work conditions of great importance to me. I couldn’t have asked for more thoroughness, better insight and a greater understanding of the FDA lateral market in Washington.”

Frank Baltz Sr VP of Legal Affairs, The Clark Construction Group, Bethesda, Maryland

“Stu helped me target a number of law firms that had potential. It was an interactive process as I had some specific ideas to blend with his recommendations. As I was coming from an in house role, my presentation and business plan were extremely important and Stuart Tenhoor Legal Search's expertise helped me get there. In all I was very satisfied with their assistance…they stuck to the job and Stu was there for me from start to finish.”

Andrew Reidy Partner at Lowenstein Sandler LLP, Washington, D.C.

“I have known Stuart for 15 years as he has helped me with two lateral moves. Both times, Stuart was professional, diligent, and thoughtful. Without his analysis of the potential options and tireless pursuit of the best opportunity for our team, a very momentous decision would have become much harder. I give Stuart the highest recommendation. For any partner or partner group seeking a better opportunity, Stuart can deliver.”

Delia Stubbs Deschaine Associate, Hogan Lovells, Washington, D.C.

“The process with Stuart Tenhoor was organic – we went from possibility to reality – and he delivered results. In part, based on his knowledge, I selected just a handful of firms to approach and got offers at each one.  Stuart actually helped me find a position that was never advertised.  His knowledge of the FDA players and firms in the FDA law space is superior.”


Robert Rhoad now Partner, Sheppard Mullin, Washington, D.C.

"Simply put, he delivered outstanding opportunities, helped highlight my skills and value to target firms, secured interviews for me at top firms, and provided sage counsel on the best fit based upon the criteria we established. I received and accepted an offer with my top choice firm. Stuart has my strongest possible recommendation for any partner or group ready to test the market and explore opportunities as well as for any firm in need of a headhunter."

Paul Gadiock Senior Attorney, Arent Fox

"Stuart gained my confidence with a deep knowledge of area firms with top FDA practices. He knew their hiring tendencies and acted as institutional memory on the development of many FDA practice groups.  Many employers did not meet my goals but 2 stood out and Stuart directed me.  I recommend Stuart as an outstanding guide to anyone seeking a new position in the Life Sciences/FDA space."


Law Firm and Trade Association Testimonials

Neil O'Flaherty Baker & McKenzie (formerly with Olsson, Frank & Weeda)

“We hired Stuart as we knew his reputation in placing FDA partners and his strong knowledge of the FDA bar.  In 3 months, he was able to generate multiple viable candidates, some of whom we would not have identified on our own.  After careful consideration, during which time he consulted regularly with us, we selected a new partner. We think very highly of his services.    We found him to be creative, effective, easy to work with, and extremely responsive.  We were very satisfied with his professionalism and level of effort.”

Karen Bruno SPRH, Director, Human Resources, American Urological Association

“We had invested 3 months in the process of looking for a new General Counsel as we thought, with the many lawyers we knew, we would be able to get one on board promptly. After several close calls, we realized this would be more difficult than we thought.We were then introduced to Stuart’s company by one of our most respected outside counsel. Stuart moved forward immediately. Within 10 days of our meeting, he had brought us 3 really good candidates, and we were on second interviews between our most key executives and all 3 of the candidates. Although we were skeptical that our top pick would accept, Stuart negotiated on our behalf and convinced us and our favored candidate, for several key reasons, that our position would be a great fit for both sides."

Ted Offit Managing Partner, Offit Kurman, mid-Atlantic region
