John Park – Bereavement Authority of Ontario

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Funeral planning can occur very quickly, often by people who are still mourning. While there are options for pre-planning—buying a cemetery plot in advance, specifying funeral and memorial service arrangements (and setting aside money to pay for them), a lot can be left to chance or to funeral directors, cemeteries and crematoriums. In Ontario, attorney […]

Rod Rummelsburg – AireSpring

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It was a call Rod Rummelsburg recalls clearly. A young girl was missing; law enforcement needed an internet service provider address from his company, AireSpring, to follow a lead on where they might find her. The calls from law enforcement are not uncommon—as AireSpring’s general counsel, Rummelsburg’s legal team created a standardized form to answer […]

Anna Aguilar – Aguilar Bentley LLC

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s not exactly a modern-day retelling of the David versus Goliath saga, but when it comes to Aguilar Bentley’s track record in New York City law, some of the story’s elements might well ring true. Replace the two guys with women, one being a mother of triplets. Then consider that the small feisty firm—founded in […]

Philippe Claude – Mars Wrigley Confectionery

Est. reading time: 4 mins

As the checkout conveyor lurches forward, bringing your groceries along for the ride, you decide to treat yourself to a Snickers bar from the aisle’s candy display. It’s always been your favorite, after all. “No need to throw it in a bag,” you tell the cashier. “This’ll be gone by the time I pull in […]

Dianna DeVore – Inscripta Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

In some afterlife, Dr. David Livingstone might well be nodding in approval of Inscripta Inc.’s lofty agenda. “Feed, fuel and heal the world,” this young biotech proclaims from its headquarters in Boulder, Colorado—an objective similar to what the late missionary martyr undertook in Africa during the 19th century. If Inscripta is to succeed in its […]

Erin Wiggins – TS Tech Americas Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s the world’s seventh largest automaker by volume, the Japanese-owned Honda Motor Co., which churns out around 5 million vehicles annually. Wherever it’s doing so, there’s likely to be a TS Tech installation nearby, producing the specialized seats and door liners as well as other interior necessities and accessories. Partially owned by Honda, there are […]

Alon Rotem – thredUP

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Alon Rotem remembers receiving a phone call from a customer who bought a used purse from thredUP. From all outward appearances everything was as advertised: the design, the condition, the way she imagined it looking on her shoulder. When the customer reached inside, however, she found something she didn’t expect: $500 in cash. The purse […]

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.
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.
