Ali Rifai – Zurich Insurance Group

M&A attorneys generally buy and sell operating businesses, but what about attorneys who do the opposite? What about attorneys who specialize in divesting discontinued operations? As general counsel for Zurich Legacy Solutions, Ali Rifai is part of a specialized division within Zurich Insurance Group that sells blocks of business that no longer fit its plans. […]

Andrea Lockridge – Cameron Mutual Insurance

There’s a lot of risk in running a farm. With large animals and heavy machinery, the possibility of an employee getting hurt or equipment breaking is high. If an owner doesn’t have good insurance and there’s an accident, they could lose everything. Andrea Lockridge says she doesn’t want any farmer to go through that. The […]

Andrew Lombardi – Crescent Real Estate

Sometimes in life and the business world, you find yourself back where you started. Such was the case when, earlier this year, Crescent Real Estate re-acquired the landmark property and its namesake: The Crescent, a 1.3 million-square-foot mixed-use property in Dallas. According to General Counsel Andrew Lombardi, the re-acquisition was one of the largest single […]

Angela Lozano – Qualia

“Closing date”–two words that bring joy and anxiety to homebuyers, especially in a booming housing market. Once the documents are gathered and the selling price is agreed on—the waiting begins. Often, it’s weeks before the homebuyers meet to sign reams of paper, finalizing what’s likely the biggest investment they’ll make. It’s a process Angela Lozano […]

Brenda P. Fuller – Sodexo

She’s all about accountability, her own as well as that of colleagues tasked with sensitive assignments. And as her employer fills increasingly complicated roles in food services and facilities management, that calls for Brenda P. Fuller to ensure the contracts are meticulously worded to protect the interests of Sodexo’s North American division. Vice president and […]

Charles Corbin – Hilton Grand Vacations

When the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in early 2020, leisure travel came to a near stop. Essential travel continued, but vacations were canceled, and plans were postponed indefinitely. Charles Corbin had never seen anything like it, even during hurricane season. He watched—and helped—as Hilton Grand Vacations temporarily closed its timeshare properties for the safety of staff […]

Chelsea Wardrop – Arcadia Management Group

It almost never happens, but for Chelsea Wardrop it did: She made the University of Utah’s women’s basketball team as a walk-on. Nothing was guaranteed save for hard work, summer camps, endless drills and doing whatever was needed for the team—even if it meant riding the bench during her freshman year and exuding a positive […]

Chris Figel – AirBoss of America Corp.

A young lawyer who had just achieved partnership in his second go-around with a prestigious Toronto firm, Chris Figel began to feel like the de facto general counsel of AirBoss of America Corp. during the late 2010s. The Canadian-based company supplies compounded and engineered rubber products to heavy industries and North America’s armed forces. It had […]

Chris Weinstock – PennyMac Loan Services

The customer is always right and, for well over a year, that customer has been demanding a remote mortgage. Post-pandemic, that’s likely to be the new normal. So notes Chris Weinstock, who’s long taken the pulse of prospective home buyers. During the late 1990s, he aided their cause as a deputy general counsel at Countrywide […]

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.
