Victoria Labriola — American Renal Associates

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When a dialysis patient, who happened to be a veteran, was repeatedly left stranded at a clinic after his exhausting treatments, the manager was at a loss about what to do and turned to Victoria Labriola for help. The goal was to make sure this patient would no longer be left behind and could get […]

Antigone Davoulas – Shake Collaboration LLC and Shake Extractions LLC

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The story started out on a quiet southern afternoon, Antigone Davoulas says, when three women met up at a local Proposition 7 campaign event in Arkansas to collaborate over crawfish. But they weren’t swapping recipes, the general counsel at Shake Collaboration remembers. They were talking about cannabis and hemp—even though it wasn’t “that” kind of […]

Shawn Cheadle – Lockheed Martin Space

Est. reading time: 4 mins

To the skeptics—not to mention the cynics—Space Force may have seemed a George Lucas-esque fantasy when the White House, earlier this year, commissioned a sixth branch of the armed forces within the Air Force that, if need be, could take the fight to higher and higher altitudes. But nothing sounded too pie-in-the-sky to the companies […]

Jeremy Livianu – Establishment Labs

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The ringing of the Nasdaq bell was preceded by a phone call to Establishment Labs by Costa Rican President Carlos Alvarado Quesada last July 18. For this was a landmark moment; the Costa Rican company qualified for an initial public offering on an American stock exchange, its shares going for $26.60 and since holding fairly […]

Connie Geoghan – Alliance Laundry Systems LLC

Est. reading time: 5 mins

There was the fired employee who stole intellectual property, and then used the threat of litigation to try to blackmail the company (spoiler alert: it didn’t work). A few years later, there was the battlefield promotion when the boss up and quit, leaving behind an incomplete budget and a quarter to close. Or that time […]

Richard Fiore – ACTS-Aviation Security Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The need for its services only growing as the threats in the post-9/11 world continue to evolve, the sky would indeed seem the limit for ACTS-Aviation Security Inc. Indeed the U.S. subsidiary of ICTS Europe is intent on expanding well beyond its security solutions and services for airline catering, aircraft security and cargo screening. The […]

Dina Segal

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When Dina Segal’s son was three and wondering why his mother wasn’t home one particular day, he approached his father with the question: “Why does mommy work all the time?” Segal’s husband responded: “Mommy goes to work because she helps people solve problems; she helps make the world a better place.” Those words stuck with […]

Lindsay Thomas – Tessemae’s

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When you’re a newly minted general counsel, there’s often immediate pressure to help take the company to the next level—to not merely facilitate the company’s growth but accelerate it. Truth be told, when Thomas joined organic salad dressings and condiments purveyor Tessemae’s in early 2017, she had to do the opposite: rein things in. “I […]

Bert Kaminski – ServiceMax

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Bert Kaminski had a choice to make. Not quite as nerve-racking as leaving private practice for the dot-com bubble before it burst, but close enough to cause a few sleepless nights: remain as chief commercial counsel at GE Digital, or jump ship to head the legal operations for a recently spun-off subsidiary. Once again, Kaminski […]

Kelly Koster – Pride Global

Est. reading time: 5 mins

On the legislative and regulatory fronts, few matters change faster than labor law, Kelly Koster muses from her office at Pride Global, a company that last summer entrusted her with, among other duties, keeping abreast of changes nationwide and sometimes abroad. For Pride Global is the employer of record for thousands of temporary workers provided […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
