Jaimes Sher – IP Excellence

Est. reading time: 5 mins

A 2019 report by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute concluded the average commuter wastes 54 hours per year in traffic delays—more than a weekend, if you count the hours spent sleeping. Jaimes Sher knows all about this. For decades, he had the same routine. His alarm would go off, he’d shower, get dressed, and rush […]

Caren Weakley – Radiology Partners

Est. reading time: 4 mins

The importance of leadership development is a topic rarely covered in the standard law school curriculum. But for Caren Weakley, vice president and managing general counsel, risk, for Radiology Partners, the largest physician-owned radiology practice in the U.S., this development is intrinsic. Since joining the company in 2019, Weakley has overseen everything from litigation and […]

Rick Levy – ICM Partners

Est. reading time: 6 mins

While there’s been no shortage of “pinch himself” moments—attending movie premieres, A-list parties and award ceremonies—nothing has topped the countless instances where a bright-eyed assistant would let Rick Levy know that Aretha was on the phone. “And it wasn’t some assistant on the other end holding for Aretha,” muses Levy, the longtime general counsel and […]

Christina Wahlig – Marathon Health

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Christina Wahlig loves the feeling she gets after a run; the adrenaline flowing, the endorphins giving her that unmistakable “runner’s high.” She relishes her daily run, which not only offers inspiring views of Vermont’s scenic landscape, but also a valuable opportunity to recharge. As the general counsel for Marathon Health, Wahlig needs all the energy […]

Matt Boisen – Highspot

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Sometimes on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram some corporate executive, celebrity, athlete or journalist posts a picture of their phone that shows a truly unwieldly number of unread emails. Who are these people, and why are they so busy they can’t read or delete these thousands of messages? Matt Boisen knows how to help them, just […]

Jason Hale – Lee Company

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When Tennessee Governor Bill Lee was elected in 2018, it marked a time of transition for Franklin-based Lee Company.

Stepping in as Lee Company’s first general counsel in 2017, on the eve of the election, was Jason Hale. Growing up […]

Lauren Lacey – The Hershey Co.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

She jokes it was a no-brainer to resume her legal career at The Hershey Co., where Lauren Lacey began her second go-around with the famous chocolatier in October 2019. After all, she tells Vanguard on the eve of that anniversary, fringe benefits include Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. But it’s been a sweet deal for all […]

Dionne Tunstall Jenkins – Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Dionne Tunstall Jenkins has never been far from a classroom. Not in her role as general counsel for Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. Not when she used to visit her father’s classrooms during summer breaks, and certainly not when she established her own classroom at home with old textbooks and a blackboard and taught her stuffed animals. […]

Kamau Coar – Heidrick & Struggles

Est. reading time: 4 mins

A pivotal year 2020 was indeed. One marked by, among other happenings, so many companies playing catch-up on the diversity and inclusion fronts. It’s long overdue, Kamau Coar observes from his office at Heidrick & Struggles in downtown Chicago. But as this general counsel and corporate secretary for a global executive search and leadership advisory […]

Tom Burton – Traeger Pellet Grills LLC

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s as sure a sign of spring as swallows returning to San Juan Capistrano. As the green creeps back into the lawns and trees begin to bud, off comes the grill cover, up goes the lid and on go the steaks. As spring approached in 2020 at Traeger Pellet Grills in Salt Lake City, Tom […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
