Benoit Mallette – Pomerleau

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It began, as so many success stories do, in a schoolhouse. The primary school in the town of Saint-Bernard, Quebec, was a one-story affair that was quickly becoming too small to serve the community. The contract to expand with a new two-floor wing went to Pomerleau, a fledgling construction company founded in 1964 in nearby […]

Your physician has made an unsettling diagnosis. It may not be life-threatening, but it needs attention quickly and the care isn’t fully covered by your Medicare insurance plan. The resulting stress—wondering when the bills will arrive, and how to decipher and pay them—is a nerve-wracking experience shared by millions of Americans. Since 2011, Boston-based Iora […]

Evan Hearnsberger – Xponential Fitness

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When you’re a boutique fitness company whose studios are filled with rowing machines, stationary indoor bikes and treadmills, a global pandemic and mandatory shutdown orders might seem like a final burnout round. Most members can’t afford such equipment—often computerized with individual health metrics—and many joined the studio because they crave interaction with other fitness aficionados and enthusiastic trainers. But even as gyms […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

An in-house attorney who’s doing their job well knows they’re a voice for the company’s growth. It’s about saying “yes” as much as possible—while making sure what they advise also complies with legal and ethical standards. Saying yes in the face of a global pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges to Augusto Martínez, the Latin American […]

Lara Pitaro Wisch – Major League Baseball

Est. reading time: 6 mins

The slap of a fastball into a catcher’s mitt, the thock of a bat connecting with the ball and the roar of the crowd as the ball sails into the stands are things Lara Pitaro Wisch has long loved. And though her love of the game has never waned, she’s hasn’t lost sight of the […]

Susan Bridgman – Emerald Advisors, representing Teradata and Field Aerospace Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It was an eleventh hour emergency, Susan Bridgman says, when she received a news flash from the U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security this spring: Changes were being made to regulatory codes that would impact trade practices between her San Diego software client and its customers in China and Russia—not exactly what one wants to […]

Kelly M. Slavitt

Est. reading time: 5 mins

You’ve been working from home for weeks or months, with no indication of when—or if—your company will reopen its offices. You’ve got the routine down, the boundaries in place and the home office set up and modified to your liking. But what happens if you slip and fall in your home office? What if you […]

Priya Huggett – Brixton Capital

Est. reading time: 4 mins

As the first woman of color nominated for vice president of the United States, Kamala Harris has given working women of color across the country a boost—including Brixton Capital’s General Counsel Priya Huggett.

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.
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.
