As the company seeks to modernize, she’s simplifying board procedures to make them less overwhelming, too. Kotelon’s […]

Anthony Wilson – Design.ME Hair

Anthony Wilson didn’t go on a shopping trip for healthy and beauty products in Paraguay because he has exotic tastes.  Wilson ventured south, instead, in search of fake products as general counsel for Moroccanoil. He’s also helped set up sting operations in those regions to protect the company’s brands from infringement and counterfeiting. It was […]

Atoussa Mahmoudpour – WELL Health Technologies

As Atoussa Mahmoudpour has observed, the COVID-19 pandemic has done something for healthcare that little else could: It led to a much greater use of remote care. For many patients, online appointments, including video or audio-only chats, became a necessity. Mahmoudpour is the chief legal officer of the largest single-chain network of primary care clinics […]

Betsy Philpott – Washington Nationals

“Next year” has arrived, and while it’s had ups and downs for the Washington Nationals, at least baseball is returning to normal with a 162-game schedule, turnstiles opening to capacity and no more cardboard cutouts as placeholders for fans. An afternoon at Nationals Park is again an event to relish for the team’s passionate general […]

Brandon Williams – Steve Harvey Global

Most law students are terrified of the Socratic method, where professors put them on the spot to test their knowledge. Some lawyers, however, embrace that fear and use it to drive them, Brandon Williams says. In fact, when he traded in his Emory Law student seat for a counsel desk at the international law firm […]

Catherine Romang – CBC

Has Catherine Romang quenched her thirst for legal knowledge? Likely not, even after more than 20 years practicing and teaching corporate and international law.

Christine Johnson – Le Duff America

In 1983, a businessman moved from France to Dallas, Texas, where he dreamed of recreating the perfect baguette in a region defined by barbecue and tortillas. In pursuit of his vision, la Madeleine, a bakery and cafe in Dallas, was born. A cult-like following throughout the city developed for fast French fare, blossoming into a […]

Dante Bradley – Volaris Group

At the time, more than a decade before the arrival of COVID-19 forced remote work on businesses, it was a novel idea. The Virtual Law Office, begun in 2010, was an entirely remote business. As its founder and sole proprietor, Dante Bradley, explains, it was a small firm that offered typical legal services, but it […]

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.
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.
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.
