Robby McGarry – Kindeva Drug Delivery

Est. reading time: 4 mins

There are many reasons why someone might not take medicine prescribed to them. Sometimes it’s because it’s difficult to self-administer. Other times it’s because it’s unaffordable. Whatever the reason, the alternative—an untreated medical condition—is not ideal. Robby McGarry hates it when necessary, and sometimes lifesaving, medications and treatments are out of reach for people who […]

If Rome wasn’t built in a day, neither will the Bakersfield Commons. But from the get-go, the incremental redevelopment of 260 acres in the northwest corner of this iconic city, 90 miles north of Los Angeles, figured to be done in stages over 20 years. For the last three, Christopher M. Norton has been painstakingly […]

Colman Ragan – Teva Pharmaceuticals

It’s the legal equivalent of taking the field at Yankee Stadium or the stage at the Met, and Colman Ragan had a front row seat. Though not the lead counsel for Teva Pharmaceuticals, he helped draft the argument given before the U.S. Supreme Court in Helsinn Healthcare S.A. v. Teva Pharmaceuticals USA Inc. “I was […]

In both his career and personal life, Ron Zollman has found that small things can have a big impact. For instance, as a lawyer and as a nonprofit volunteer, he’s discovered that lots can be accomplished by small teams dedicated to whom they’re serving. Whether growing a company or supporting his community, he relies on […]

Allison Purmort – Southwest Foodservice Excellence

Many factors influence children’s ability to learn from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. They need reliable tools and resources, like laptops and a strong internet connection, as well as an environment that offers support without distraction. And to concentrate, they can’t be hungry. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, more than 20 million students […]

Ana Beatriz Guillén Vindas – Grupo Financiero ACOBO

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Like many employees at financial institutions worldwide, the team at Grupo Financiero ACOBO wasn’t sure what to expect during a government shutdown two months into the COVID-19 pandemic. With financial markets in a state of flux and ACOBO’s customers confined to their homes—not to mention a still-deepening economic crisis—Legal Director Ana Beatriz Guillén Vindas says […]

Jordan Carpenter – Artisent Floors

Est. reading time: 4 mins

For Jordan Carpenter, uniformity and order are ways of life—beginning with his daily 5:30 a.m. workout with F3, the peer-led fitness organization on whose leadership team he now sits. Depending on the day, he might do situps or pushups, pullups or burpees. Whatever the routine, his experience as an Army psychological operations specialist in Afghanistan […]

Evelio Hernández Salazar – Sanofi

Even in high school, Sanofi Legal Counsel Evelio Hernández Salazar knew he wanted to make a career of helping people. When he joined Sanofi, and the COVID-19 pandemic arrived, he certainly got his chance.

Ashwin Krishnan – Miami Marlins

Est. reading time: 5 mins

In-house sports law, now that’s a tough field for anyone to make the cut. There are so few positions to begin with, and so many young lawyers looking to go that route. And the few who get there? They’ve usually prepared early, aggressively pursuing any “in” during law school or even undergrad, but still having […]

Matthew Gerber – Center for Excellence in Higher Education Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Not all college students are 18 to 22 years old. There are many barriers—time, money, other commitments—that keep people from pursuing the traditional college path. Imagine a young single mother—her 20s were spent raising two children while picking up every shift she could to make a little extra money. Now she’s in her 30s and […]

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.
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.
