Brian Chevlin – Pernod Ricard North America

It may not be among the more emotional cases that the U.S. Supreme Court is taking up, but it bodes significant consequences for the liquor industry. It also commands the attention of Brian Chevlin in his role as general counsel for the North American operations of the French vintner and distiller, Pernod Ricard. For Tennessee […]

Gustavo Cruz – Avon (Andean Cluster)

Even at 16 years old, while most of his peers were simply trying to survive the trials of teenage-hood, Gustavo Cruz was setting his sights on grander things. Like starting a democratic turnaround in his native Colombia. Well, sort of. During his final year at Gimnasio de los Cerros in Bogotá, the city’s school board—which […]

Juan Pablo Malfavon

He’s orchestrated a major spinoff for one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies and navigated complex and evolving regulations for a global leader in the pet and livestock medicine sector, all while building out its Latin American operations.

Kathryn Holt Richardson – HR Legal Search

Could be mom tampered with that fortune cookie. Not that she’d ever so admit. But if she did, her daughter just might give her the biggest of hugs. For as Kathy Richardson explains, her initial inclination was to be a career counselor, something she was finding time to do even while majoring in international affairs […]

M. Dru Levasseur – Lambda Legal

As if the legal education wasn’t stressful enough, M. Dru Levasseur had the additional challenge of transitioning from female to male while enrolled at the Western New England University School of Law in Springfield, Massachusetts, during the early and mid-2000s. “It’s a very individualized process,” says Levasseur, who would earn his juris doctorate in 2006. […]

Matan Balas – littleBits

There’s one kit for exploring the surface of an alien planet, with folding solar panels and app-powered wheels included. There’s one that lets you build and customize a synth guitar, and another that enables you to control and monitor your room. Not to mention a myriad of intricate, multi-user kits for schools and teachers, solidifying […]

Richard Patti – Live Nation Entertainment

He figures that a million lawyers would gladly step into his position, and if Richard Patti weren’t the senior vice president and associate general counsel of Live Nation Entertainment, he, too, would be most envious of whoever held that plum. After all, opportunities do arise for him to mingle with A-List celebs, the progressive corporate […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
