Features December 2017

Always gassed and ready to go

Houston was the proverbial tale of two cities in early September when Kevin Feeney, chief legal officer and senior vice president to one of the region’s major corporations, found time for an interview with Vanguard. “Parts of this city are still underwater but our main office is fine,” said Feeney, who runs the Americas side […]

An energy source well-acquitted

Her sole client being North America’s sixth largest coal producer, Jennifer S. Grafton is quick to advocate for the much-maligned energy source whose use has seen a decline over the past five years, but remains necessary if the lights are to stay on after sundown. “I am not a technical person, but I can tell […]

Bill Tomaszewski – Wine.com

When Bill Tomaszewski says he’s the luckiest man in the world, he can make a case using his own metrics. He may be far from the richest Bill around—the one with the Gates surname would claim that honor by light years—but he is set financially. The 20 years he spent as a New Jersey cop […]

Bob Robinson – RMG Networks

Bob Robinson’s first appointment to a legal role was unceremonious. While an officer in the United States Navy, he once mentioned a passing interest in attending law school. When his commanding officer heard this, he simply handed Robinson the role of legal officer. As he was already an anti-submarine warfare and nuclear weapons officer, the […]

Brandon Mazer – Shipyard Brewing Co.

When the Matador Network, the social media gathering spot for tourists, crowned Portland, Maine, the world’s best city for craft beer in 2016—well ahead of such hoppy hot spots as Munich, Prague and Melbourne, Australia—the folks at Shipyard Brewing Co. had reason to raise a pint. Shipyard is, after all, the biggest craft brewer not […]

Christopher Juban – Caiman Energy II LLC

Outside of New York City, Houston has more Fortune 500 headquarters than any other U.S. municipality, and so many of them are in the oil and gas industry that the city is known worldwide for its energy businesses. When you grow up in Houston, Texas, then, it’s hard not to have some connection to oil […]

Driving change in workers’ compensation

“Get in the trunk,” Steve Sibner told his client after bailing him out of jail in the early morning hours of an especially memorable day back in 1986. It was one of the first pieces of legal advice that the young attorney gave to anyone, as he had only recently graduated from American University’s Washington […]

Jason Groves – Medifast

Jason Groves has been an attorney for more than 20 years, but it wasn’t until 2011 that he was personally thanked by clients for changing their lives. That was the year that Groves joined Medifast, a Maryland-based nutrition and weight loss company that had just nabbed the top spot on Forbes magazine’s list of America’s […]

Joshua Markus – Ardagh Group

Joshua Markus comes across as the complete package. Bright, articulate, friendly and in good humor, he makes a good first impression. Perhaps, best of all, he seems to have a lot of substance, which had to be among the reasons his services weren’t just retained, but upgraded, after his company was bought last year, fittingly […]

Juliana Cobb – Nana Development Corp.

The way Juliana Cobb looks at it, she was given the benefit of a few months’ head start when her longtime employer, NANA Development Corp., informed in June that it would no longer need her services as senior corporate counsel. Having been in-house counsel for what has been known as WHPacific, Inc. since 1998 and […]

Testimonials

The piece highlighting my company, Bob Baker Enterprises, Inc., came out fabulous. Our company is in the new and used car sales and service industry. Everyone was great to work with and extremely professional. They produced a high-quality product and have provided expert assistance and guidance post-production of the article.
– Wade Poulson, General Counsel, Bob Baker Enterprises Inc.
I was honored to be the subject of an article. I enjoy reading Vanguard articles and seeing how other attorneys got to their positions and see their jobs. It's also interesting to see how different law firms partner with the subjects of the articles.
– Henry Marquard, in-house counsel, Stanley Consultants Inc.
As promised in advance, my feature in Vanguard has increased my visibility within the profession and prompted more than a few people I have not communicated with recently to reconnect. One of the Italian law firms I have used in the past is now in the process of interviewing me for an article on their website and tweeting out the feature story. Activity and the number of people connecting with me on LinkedIn has soared, which is great. The Vanguard writers and editorial staff were great to work with—highly professional and made the effort to make the experience both fun and rewarding (they were also respectful of the time pressures and demands all lawyers face). I was very pleased with the experience and the final outcome. Needless to say, I have been very pleased. All in all working with Vanguard has been a very positive experience which generated good publicity for both Shawcor and myself. My sincere thanks.
– Tim Hutzul, General Counsel, ShawCor Ltd.
