Claire Tauriainen – California Housing Finance Agency

It’s a program that had long made first-time homeownership a possibility for K-12 public school teachers of modest means, but education is not solely dependent upon teachers. Thus, reasoned the California Housing Finance Agency in 2017, other people also indispensable to public education should be recognized in the name of the program. Hence the Extra […]

David Kastin – The Vitamin Shoppe

It may have been enacted a quarter century ago, but this federal legislation becomes more and more of a challenge on the compliance front for a company expanding into new product lines. So muses David Kastin about the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act to which his employer, The Vitamin Shoppe, must dutifully adhere. […]

Davison Paull – Dashlane

There are an estimated 3.5 billion people logging on to the internet globally. Of those users, perhaps 60 million use some kind of digital storage for their passwords, likely by saving them at sites they visit or through a browser like Google Chrome. It’s a convenient method, until there’s a hack. Yet who can blame […]

Desiree Ralls-Morrison – Boston Scientific Corporation

Its medical lasers are widely considered some of the best in the world. The TAXUS Stent, used to open clogged arteries, has given thousands of patients a new lease on life. Scan the company’s products tab and you’re met with a head-spinning lexicon, from atherectomy systems to uteroscopes. For more than 40 years, Boston Scientific […]

Donatella Catapano – Leonardo

When it comes to selling high-tech helicopters worldwide, it’s safe to say the pile of regulatory paperwork to meet requirements of multiple countries is—excuse the pun—sky high. Just ask Donatella, Leonardo Helicopters’ head of legal operations. She’ll tell you that every day the Italian multinational company specializing in aerospace, defense and security operations has 5,000 […]

Doug Sandberg – FirstView Financial

If you’ve watched even an hour of television in the last decade, you’re probably familiar with the formula for pharmaceutical ads: 10 seconds to tell you how great the drug is; another 40 to run through the side effects; and 10 more to say you might be eligible for subsidized coverage. According to Doug Sandberg, […]

Douglas Charton – GMO

Douglas Charton vividly remembers sitting in an internet café on the Greek island of Ios in the Summer of 2007, enjoying a much-deserved holiday following the bar exam. It was there he received an email notifying him he got a job in the Investment Management practice group of K&L Gates LLP, a prominent global law […]

Douglas Coleman – Aerion Supersonic

It was once the epitome of jet-setting, zipping passengers from Paris and London to New York and Washington D.C. and back in about half the time of a conventional commercial flight. Long and sleek, its wings fully molded to its body, and its thin nose section bowed as it landed, the Concorde broke sound barriers […]

Ellis Rosenzweig – CyberGRX

That data breaches are invasive, expensive and frightening is not news. What’s less known is that some of the worst breaches—including the 2013 theft of data from the Target retail chain—are not a result of direct hacks. Instead, hackers can work their way into a corporate network or database through their vendors or third parties. […]

Fabian Rivero – Megalabs

There were just three steps to the relentless business expansion underway at Megalabs in Latin America. Companies are vetted (1), purchased (2) and integrated (3). There may be other steps, too, but overall it’s a simple idea—hardly the first of its kind. It stands out at Megalabs only because of its swift execution. In the […]

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.
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.
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.
