Gary Spiegel – Anaplan

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It was six months of head down, nose to the grindstone work. Preparing Anaplan for its IPO in October 2018—and simultaneously capturing the momentum of the software company and the economic climate—required that a core team be constantly assessing, researching and ticking off specific guidelines and checkpoints, all within tight timelines. In other words, explains […]

Rekha Hanu – Akorn Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

There may not be a dry eye in the house. At least there may not need to be since a major drugmaker has been denied an attempt to shield its patent for the pricy prescription eye drop Restasis. A very unusual tactic, says Rekha Hanu, the chief intellectual property counsel at Akorn Inc., one of […]

Brett Pailet – adMarketplace

Est. reading time: 4 mins

For in-house attorney Brett Pailet, it’s not a question of if artificial intelligence (AI) will eventually take his job, but when—and how much of it. Rest assured, Pailet isn’t envisioning a brave new world with hyper-intelligent computers taking over a company’s legal department (much less an army of robot lawyers). Rather, he sees technology as […]

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.
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.
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.
