Features August 2021

Kristen Hughes – Elevate Textiles

The textile mills of today are a far cry from those of the 19th century, before countries shifted from agrarian to urban industrial economies. Before the shift, weary workers found little solace from working in poor and often dangerous conditions, typically for low wages and long hours. These days, new technologies, better business and labor […]

Laurence Kraemer – Northwell Health

It would be easy to say Larry Kraemer has seen better days at Northwell Health, a comprehensive health care system operating in and around New York City. After all, even as Northwell Health grows—in part because of Kraemer’s expertise in tax and corporate finance—it’s also been at the epicenter of COVID-19 pandemic. That made it […]

Leisa Talbert Peschel – Jackson Walker

For Leisa Talbert Peschel and Wasif Qureshi, partners at the Texas-based law firm Jackson Walker, no two cases are ever the same. Then again, there aren’t many massive lawsuits between two, multibillion-dollar companies. In February of 2019, ESW Holdings, a private equity company, filed a lawsuit against digital streaming giant Roku for allegedly infringing on […]

Luis Augusto (Lucho) Zelaya – Banco Industrial, S.A., Guatemala

When the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in 2020, most companies shut their doors and scrambled to move services online. While many banks scaled back, as well, Lucho Zelaya says Banco Industrial took a different approach, adding to its online services. According to Zelaya, BI’s legal manager, even before the pandemic, digital enhancements were making legal and […]

Nate Bailey – FLEXcon Holdings

Quite the balancing act FLEXcon Holdings committed to five years ago when its owner and CEO decided to prepare for the next generation of leadership. Noted for its pressure-sensitive film products used in outdoor advertising and product labeling, the Massachusetts company sought to become world-class in leadership, employee development and governance while maintaining its family […]

Patrick Doran – FHLBank Topeka

This is rural America at its best. Spread across four states from Denver to Kansas City, the green, rolling fields of farmland stretch to the foothills of the Rockies. Farm families have worked the land for generations, but they, along with their communities, have not been without funding and other support. As Patrick Doran explains, […]

Robin Ricketts – Lockheed Martin Space

For Robin Ricketts, there’s nothing quite like sitting at the console of mission control during a space launch. There’s the countdown, then the call for the ignition, and finally the sonic rumble in her bones as the engines erupt and the rocket flies into the stratosphere, leaving a billowing contrail of water vapor in its […]

Steve Chiang – RPX

Typically, when a company holds a patent, the underlying product or technology is one that the company itself has created and intends to sell. Other times, those patents are acquired by non-practicing entities, companies that don’t develop or sell the related product—but can employ aggressive litigation tactics to make money off businesses that do. Enter […]

Thomas Lynch – Fortive

He’s always looking for broader responsibilities—and to learn new things. Not necessarily with a larger company; just one involved in healthcare, an industry to which Thomas Lynch feels the most personal connection. One of eight children born to a doctor father and a nurse mother, he and the others all pursued careers with some connection […]

Timothy Norton – Health First

In early August, Timothy Norton’s phone started ringing off the hook—and the news wasn’t good. Just when he thought a semi-vaccinated public might put COVID-19 in the rear-view mirror, the CEO of Health First’s Hospital Division told him available space in South and Central Florida hospitals was dwindling fast. As system vice president, associate general […]

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.
