Joe Rubbone – Vita Coco

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Joe Rubbone has a saying. One he’d often heard from colleagues around the office, before adopting the maxim himself. A ready refrain for just about any stressor. Six syllables that say more than most legal soliloquys ever could. “It’s only coconuts.” Well, it is and it isn’t. Vita Coco, the company for which Rubbone serves […]

A. Verona Dorch – Peabody

Est. reading time: 5 mins

A. Verona Dorch was 11 years old when her family moved from London to the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. The borough was a far rougher place back then, and for families from a faraway country—even an English-speaking one—the adjustment could be harrowing. As she would in so many trials and tribulations to come, Dorch […]

Diankha Linear – Convoy Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

“It all centers on endless capacity and zero waste,” Diankha Linear responds when asked how she approaches her new role as general counsel for the Seattle-based tech company Convoy Inc. Conveniently enough, those two ideals also encompass the raison d’être and mission of Convoy, best described as the unique and progressive disrupter of a national […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Ever wanted to own a private jet? Something top of the line like the Learjet 75, sleek and feature packed, a few used models on controller.com that will set you or your company back around $7 million? It might be too pricy for you to own exclusively, but maybe you’ve got a buddy, several or […]

UFC GYM

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Those who have never stepped foot in a UFC GYM might expect to see the facility constantly full of muscular men and women battling it out in the middle of an eight-sided, cage-enclosed fighting ring. After all, the Ultimate Fighting Championship organization—which blends disciplines like boxing, wrestling, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, sambo, karate and judo—is now a […]

Lilia Pous – VivaAerobus

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Family and friends thought she’d landed her dream job, and early on Lilia Pous might’ve agreed. She’d just been named department chief at Mexico’s Institute for the Protection of Bank Savings, a prestigious appointment that entailed working with high-level government data. But to hear her tell it, layers of bureaucratic red tape quickly diminished the […]

Heather Mars – TheStreet

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Point to a time in the last 20 years where technology and media created a paradigm shift, from streaming music to YouTube to social media feeds. There’s a good chance Heather Mars was right in the thick of it. Along the way, Mars has come to embrace a change-or-perish approach in navigating the ever-fluctuating content […]

Martin Wilson – Teligent

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It could’ve been anything. A computer software company. A machine shop. A run-of-the-mill warehouse. It was the definition of non-descript—a utilitarian building in Buena, New Jersey, halfway between Atlantic City and Philadelphia. Martin Wilson knows the bigger picture. Since mid-2017 he’s been a frequent visitor here, keeping tabs on the site’s construction. All told, he […]

Heather McAllister – Penn Foster

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Heather McAllister grew up in Pittsburgh, about 250 miles west of the anthracite-rich borough of Shenandoah, Pennsylvania, where a 19th-century newspaper publisher named Thomas J. Foster took a particular interest in the plight of the men—and their families—for whom coal was both their livelihood and the biggest threat to their survival. Foster’s newspaper having chronicled […]

Testimonials

It was a great honor to be featured in Vanguard Law. Working with every member of the team, from the initial interview with Erin Clark, through production with Victor Martins, writing the article with Taryn Plumb and creating the final content with Dave Gushee, was a true pleasure. Everyone was very professional, enthusiastic and supportive, and their creative approach and positive attitude clearly came through in the final product.
– Kevin C. Rakowski, Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, Compliance with Radian Group 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.
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.
