Features January 2019

Andrew Chen – Vyopta

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Specializing in enterprise solutions and business analytics, with a unified communications (UC) management platform that’s become a bona-fide best-in-class, Vyopta’s clientele is a who’s-who of Fortune companies: Astrazeneca, Comcast, UPS, the list goes on. And yet, with $6 million on the line—a drop in the bucket for any of these enterprises—Vyopta’s general counsel and co-founder, […]

Paul Brown – UL

The deal seems too good to be true: a brand new Apple laptop charger for $12.99—far below what you’d pay on the company’s website. When you open the package the next day, the item looks just as advertised: white, sleek and perfectly packaged, right down to the clear protective stickers. Six months later, you notice […]

Lisa Gazley – 20th Century Fox

Est. reading time: 4 mins

She’s not a lawyer, but Lisa Gazley just might have a resume and professional responsibilities that would be the envy of many who have that juris doctorate on their wall—in addition to law school debt that they’ll be paying off for a long time. Meanwhile the personable Gazley continues to have a front-row seat as […]

Sophia A. Muirhead – The Conference Board

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It has published research critical to the adoption of eight-hour workdays and lobbied for employment of African-Americans and the disabled. President Woodrow Wilson asked for its help in resolving labor disputes during WWI. Its seminal findings on industrial pollution were incorporated into the first policies of the federal government’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the […]

Luisa Suarez – Grupo Vitalmex

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Luisa Suarez makes it clear at the beginning of the lively interview: “I’m a lawyer who happens to be a woman. Not the other way around.” And she’s appreciative to be recognized in that manner by her employer and peers. Of course, she’s earned the faith and goodwill of the executive team at Vitalmex, having […]

David Rose – ProPath

It’s called PAMA, as in the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, but may entail unintended consequences. For while the 2014 law seeks to prevent cuts to the federal insurance program for senior citizens and some of the disabled, it means lower reimbursement rates for some of the most cost-efficient clinics so necessary in […]

Alice Davidson – Mogo

Est. reading time: 4 mins

The Department of No. If you’ve ever worked for a corporate legal division, or so much as shared the same building, chances are you’ve heard the adage—that backhanded nod to the legal function’s joyless, fundamentally defensive posture. Truth be told, no is a word Alice Davidson is more than happy to use. So long as […]

Jenny Wang – MerchSource/ThreeSixty Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

For generations of kids and kids-at-heart, the name conjures up instant memories of giant plush bears and light-up keyboards played with dancing feet—Tom Hanks’ iconic scene in “Big” foremost among them. So, when iconic toymaker FAO Schwarz launched a new flagship retail space in Rockefeller Plaza this past November, three years after closing its original […]

Jason Romrell – LeadsMarket.com

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s a disturbing fact of economic life that approximately 40 percent of adults can’t cover a $400 emergency without selling property or taking out a loan, 30 percent have poor or bad credit, and millions more are credit invisible, making it difficult to secure financing. Not impossible, that is. Subprime lenders abound, especially online, willing […]

George Melo – Andron Construction Corp

Est. reading time: 5 mins

For most first-time general counsels, the in-house learning curve can feel like scaling a building. Luckily, George Melo was still wearing his climbing gear. After nearly two decades in the world of private practice, much of it spent working in a “pseudo-GC capacity” of outside counsel for market sector leading commercial and business clients, Melo […]

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.
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.
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.
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.
