Features October 2019

Michael J. Stein – Live Ventures Incorporated

Michael Stein recalls a long, cold winter in Fargo back in 2006 when he worked as an associate on a sell-side deal that was made all the better by collaborating with a bright and hard-working colleague. Stein, now the senior vice president and general counsel of Live Ventures—a holding company based in Las Vegas—never forgot […]

Michael Kauffman – Tech DNA

Imagine this: After months of market analysis, your company has finally separated contenders from pretenders and found its acquisition target: a plucky Silicon Valley startup with a game-changing machine learning technology platform. Later that day, you see a story on CNN about one of your competitors being fined hundreds of millions of dollars for violating […]

Michael Sanocki – Volant Trading

When overseeing compliance for a tech-centric financial firm—one with technology forward processes that have yet to be specifically addressed in the rulebooks—understanding the regulatory landscape is paramount. Luckily, Michael Sanocki has scaled that terrain many times before, having served in the Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations Chief Counsel’s Office at the U.S. Securities and […]

Nicolás Ruiz– Falck/Grupo Emi

The waiting may be the hardest part for anyone visiting a hospital emergency room, and there will be plenty of it. In the U.S., ER wait times range from an average of 11 minutes in Utah to 49 minutes in Washington, D.C. The time until a patient is sent home averages 91 minutes in North […]

Nicoline Huizinga – The Fashion Lawyer

As a female attorney who is also savvy and passionate about fashion, Nicoline Huizinga gets the “Legally Blonde” thing all the time. “It is very difficult,” she says. “You are being judged—the way I speak, the way I look, my accent, the way I smile, the way I dress.” But the avowed fashionista takes such […]

Rahn Gatewood – Morehouse College

Commencement day is here. After years of textbooks, papers, equations and theories, the next stop is the real world. So put on the gown, slap a fun message on your mortarboard, settle down into a folding chair for the speeches, and then strut on up to the stage for a handshake and a degree. But […]

Raymond Millien – Volvo Car Corporation

Sensors that ensure your vehicle stays centered in the lane. Cameras that help drivers pull off the most daunting of parallel parking jobs. Bluetooth technology to help drivers keep their phone conversations hands-free. And that’s before we even get to driverless and autonomous cars, with software designed to follow roads, read traffic signals, and spot […]

Rebecca Stump – SEI Private Trust Company

While working as an attorney, Rebecca Stump and her husband decided to enter the real estate business on the side by purchasing a multi-unit building. After becoming a mom she and her husband decided to expand the business. It proved to be a bit of a three-ring circus, she says, juggling and responding to the […]

Rob McCulloch – WestJet

Nobody likes flight disruptions, but they’re inevitable. And the people who may hate disruptions the most are those in charge of the airlines, explains Rob McCulloch, a member of the Calgary-based WestJet legal staff since 2013 and, since last year, director of legal in support of nine business units at Canada’s second-largest carrier. One delay […]

Robert Irwin – Tala

Somewhere in Kenya, there’s a man downloading an app on his Android smartphone in order to borrow $20. While seemingly a modest amount of money, the loan will actually let him grow his small business. In India, a woman might be taking out a mobile loan for the same amount to cover a medical emergency […]

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.
