Features February 2020

Marisol Mendoza Castillo – Atento

They are the people who help you order the new products and services you see on TV or the internet. They also assist you with questions or problems about what you bought, and sometimes call because your bill has not been paid. Yet the voices on the other end of the phone or web chat […]

OHEL Children’s Home and Family Services

In the legal world, negotiating and approving contracts can be much the same whether the contract is for widgets or human services. What the contract accomplishes, however, makes a big difference. The former seals deals, the latter can save lives, and it is the latter that has made Adam Lancer’s work more meaningful to him […]

Pedro Pablo Barragan – Jose Cuervo

Timing being critical in all matters stock-related, it didn’t seem ideal for Jose Cuervo when the world’s best-selling tequila distiller was again preparing its initial public offering in early 2017. The world’s political situation could be politely described as uncertain, especially as far as U.S.-Mexican relations were concerned, and if there’s one factor that renders […]

Richard Stevens – Old World Industries LLC

An attorney who spends his spare time painting abstract art or playing guitar is not afraid to take things in different directions. Or so it seems as Old World Industries approaches its 50th anniversary, with Richard Stevens acting as an artist of change helping to guide the Northbrook, Illinois, company down unexpected new paths, from […]

Roberto Ladron de Guevara – MetLife Chile

You might say Roberto Ladron de Guevara achieved his business New Year’s resolution months in advance at MetLife Chile. By smoothing out the legal wrinkles of two real estate financing projects, Ladron de Guevara helped pave the way for the company’s ambitious 2020 growth projections. Those wrinkles included a variety of commercial, legal, tax and […]

Sarah Barry Nupdal – Bell Bank

What do Oprah Winfrey and North Dakota’s Bell Bank have in common? That would be Bell Bank’s charitable Pay It Forward program, inspired by the TV icon 16 years ago. Since its inception in 2008, more than $15 million in charitable donations have been given by the Fargo financial institution, making headlines in the process […]

Scott Shepherd – ScaleFactor

The clichés would have ScaleFactor Chief Legal Officer Scott Shepherd landing on his feet, his boots on the ground as the Austin, Texas, company embarks on a new round of growth. And indeed, the clichés are true, as Shepherd becomes the company’s first in-house attorney, bringing a combination of military and legal experience with him […]

Shaun Wrubell – BluEarth Renewables

In some ways, representing oil companies is about as far from representing renewable power producers as it gets. In others, it’s practically right across the street. Shaun Wrubell worked for a Canadian oil sands company during a period of explosive growth in the industry. He was also around when oil prices dropped dramatically, and the […]

Tamara Lesh – LTK Engineering Services

There may have been some latecomers to this station, but it now appears to be all aboard for expanded rail transit. Especially, it would seem, in major metropolitan areas where bumper-to-bumper vehicular traffic and its noxious emissions necessitate a change in what’s long been commuting as usual. All of which puts LTK Engineering Services on […]

Ted Prouty – Air Liquide

You wouldn’t know it, but if you’re sitting down with a glass of wine while chatting or texting on a cell phone, Ted Prouty’s work is helping make that possible. As Air Liquide’s Associate General Counsel–U.S., Prouty helps manage the risk and oversee the transactions that procure the Air Liquide gases that are components in […]

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.
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.
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.
