Joe Ferguson – DBi Services LLC

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Whether it’s hurricane cleanup in Florida or repairs on a tough stretch of Texas highway, the work goes on. It’s an attitude that Joe Ferguson, general counsel for Pennsylvania-based DBi Services, has taken to heart. Only instead of clearing debris, he’s removing roadblocks to success. An asset management and infrastructure services company working with entities […]

Eight years ago, Kevin Goldberg was at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis as the Giants defeated Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. Five years before that, he watched the Giants spoil the Pats’ bid for a perfect season by defeating New England in Super Bowl XLII. In all, the Giants […]

Merely mentioning mining in some circles can conjure up collapsed tunnels and black lung disease, ever-present dangers in one of the world’s toughest occupations of hauling raw materials from the ground. But travel to Finland and hop in the cabin of the latest technological mining equipment with a coffee and you may be relaxing or […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

While Bass Wallace enjoys a respite from a quarter-century tending to complex in-house law at a couple of Texas-based energy services companies with international operations, he reckons he’ll remain active in the industry.

Miek Harbur – The New Home Co.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Larry Webb took a gamble when he hired the first in-house counsel for New Home Co., but then he’d already started a residential construction company in 2009 at the height of the Great Recession and that was paying off. So, in 2015, on the advice of Chief Financial Officer John Stephens, hired after New Home […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Building infrastructure, laying down electrical grids, producing foods for an international market and providing development opportunities to communities across Central America: It’s an interesting business model developed by Guatemala’s CMI, especially if one considers the business got famous for its fried chicken, says Hector Del Río. But as CMI Foods legal director explains, supporting communities […]

Mike Shuckerow – Aspiration Partners Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s late, you’re hungry and low on gas. So you fill your tank, maybe grab a burrito or a slice of pizza and something to drink and get on with your life. And if you use your debit card, somewhere on the other side of the planet, a tree gets planted. You may never see […]

Joe Condo – Ørsted

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Talk about a pivot: Based just outside of Copenhagen, Denmark, Ørsted has transitioned from fossil fuels to renewable energy in just 10 years—a willing cog in the Scandinavian nation’s trendsetting efforts to go green. For many years, Ørsted’s predecessor company was one of the most fossil fuel intensive energy companies in Europe. Today, it’s ranked […]

Beth Kinsley – Northland Investment

Est. reading time: 5 mins

“Do you give up when things get hard?” Beth Kinsley distinctly remembers the question posed by her Colby College advisor sophomore year when she was about to drop her microeconomics course due to an illness. As it turns out, she didn’t drop that course. In fact, she embraced economics as her minor. And her advisor’s […]

Mariel Picado – FIFCO

Est. reading time: 3 mins

As a lawyer, Mariel Picado is accustomed to being a stickler about rules, but as an artist, she loves to break them.

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.
