Features January 2020

Corey Perman – R1 RCM

Rules aren’t always to be railed against. Adhering to them can give a company a competitive edge, especially when it stays ahead of the curve. Which is no small feat for a company that manages revenue cycles and provides physician advisory services for some of the nation’s most prominent health care companies. From patient admissions […]

George Seeberger – 1st Financial Bank

When it’s time to move in or move on, wouldn’t it be nice for landlords and renters to know more about each other? In what condition did the tenant leave their past apartment? Did they get their full security deposit back? And how about the owner or property manager—how frequently did they withhold a portion […]

Helen Bougas – Selection Group

Development of the iconic brick buildings of Montreal’s historic Molson Brewing Company are about to put Selection Group on the real estate map in a big way. In June, the privately-owned Quebec-based company, specializing in the development, construction and management of real estate projects, acquired all 1.2 million square feet of the historic downtown landmark—a […]

James E. Moye Jr. – Coastal Construction

It’s all about the fruits of one’s labor outliving the person who created them. So remarks James E. Moye Jr., who has been intent on sustaining multiple legacies since taking over legal responsibilities in 2016 for one of Florida’s construction heavyweights. There’s his own family’s legacy, Moye’s father being a nationally prominent construction lawyer still […]

James L. Banks Jr. – SHRM

There was a time when a department of human resources was seen as the folks who tracked an employee’s sick leave, vacation days and whatever other benefits the company afforded—and not much else. Truth be told, there are many who still view HR through exactly that lens. If you’re one of those people, James L. […]

Jeff Garrett – Pioneer Natural Resources Co.

Energy flowing from the Permian Basin in Texas runs west to east from Midland to Houston. Houston native Jeff Garrett’s career has run in the opposite direction, as well as up, down and sideways with the advent of horizontal drilling. As an associate general counsel for Pioneer Natural Resources, Garrett helped the Dallas-based company build […]

Jeffrey Holland – Discovery Land Company

It’ll be a piece of Portuguese paradise that Jeffrey Holland will have had a hand in assembling, but may only experience as a guest. A guest of the super rich and famous, that is, and while Holland may mingle in the company of well-to-do people, his behind-the-scenes legal work does not put him on a […]

Jennifer Lohse – Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Call it a sign of the times. This past May, Sesame Street introduced a new character to its neighborhood: a bright green Muppet with bursting pigtails named Karli. Viewers learned early on that Karli had spent time in foster care. Recently, America learned why: Karli’s mother was in treatment for addiction. Helping to mold the […]

Jennifer Smestad – Otter Tail Corporation

There’s a lot to be said of Fergus Falls, Minnesota. Located in Otter Tail County, it has more than 1,000 lakes; 13,500 friendly people live there; and Otter Tail Power Company produces energy at a cost 30 percent lower than the national residential average. That doesn’t happen by accident. Working with a legal team of […]

Jill Hanson Rainford – Round Hill Capital

Differences may abound in the legal codes of the 20-plus jurisdictions where Jill Hanson Rainford oversees the legal interests of Round Hill Capital. Some subtle differences, some pronounced, but all she must keep abreast in her role with the international real estate investment and asset management firm. The United States and United Kingdom lean toward […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
