A member of the legal team since 2007, Ayyappan was used to what could be a changing office environment, but one […]

Alejandro Nino – Uber

At first glance, the last thing an Uber customer needed during a government stay-at-home order amid the COVID-19 pandemic was a ride. Literally, where could you go? But upon further reflection, Uber’s situation offered the multinational technology company an opportunity to innovate and positively contribute to communities during a crisis. Through development of new safety […]

Alex E. Colon – Tyler Technologies, Inc.

It’s such a new term—Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification—that at least as of this spring it lacked a Wikipedia entry. No matter to Alex E. Colon, who understands what it’s about and where the industry is heading. He has to, as his role is overseeing legal matters for the Federal Division of Tyler Technologies, which provides […]

Alex Yastremski – DZS

It was a cutting-edge telecommunications company in every aspect but one, that being its position of in-house legal counsel had gone unfilled for over a decade. Which was becoming an issue as DZS—DASAN Zhone Solutions—sought to expand its global footprint in the fast-evolving and highly competitive industry of designing and manufacturing broadband access technology and […]

Alexandra Kleiman – The Alinea Group

Scrumptious truffle ravioli served on a spoon and meant to be eaten in one bite. Cold fish stew boiling over with dry ice vapor. Rabbit, honeycomb morel fungi, leafy sorrel and fiddleheads arranged on glass rectangles atop redwood pieces to make it seem as if you’re foraging a whimsical forest. And a Jackson Pollock-esque dessert, […]

Alf W. Brandt – California State Assembly

Water—it’s an issue that can be all-consuming for a lawyer, and for much of Alf W. Brandt’s career it seemed that way. Some geo-pundits believe the next major war will be fought over water, not oil. At the very least, its use or misuse can divide even the most civil community. Which shouldn’t be the […]

Alizah Diamond – Regional Cancer Care Associates

As Regional Cancer Care Associates, one of the nation’s largest cancer care networks, began celebrating its fifth year of success in 2016, an ambitious agenda was being readied. At the time, RCCA’s only in-house attorney, Terrill Jordan, was promoted to president and CEO and a search commenced for his legal successor. The ideal candidate would […]

Alvaro Gómez- Godoy – Grupo Rotoplas

It’s not something many Americans have to worry about, putting plastic containers on rooftops to ensure a reliable and constant supply of water. But to Alvaro Gómez-Godoy, and many people in Mexico City and throughout Latin America, its commonplace. That’s what makes his work as general counsel and compliance officer at Mexico City-based Grupo Rotoplas—a […]

Alvaro Gutierrez – RB

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
