With COVID, ‘Liquid Workforce’ Presents Alternative to Traditional Legal Help

With businesses reeling from the pandemic, an alternative legal model might get a boost

Tuesday, July 7, 2020 Even before the COVID pandemic struck, Global Workplace Analytics, a research-based consulting organization, predicted that 25 to 30 percent of the U.S. workforce would be working from home multiple days a week by the end of 2021.  That trend could be—and already has been—especially disruptive to the legal industry, where in-person meetings have long been considered vital to the attorney-client relationship. But while many firms and […]

Will a slowdown be mitigated by pent up demand?

Thursday, June 11, 2020 Movie sets are empty, and theaters are closed. Blockbuster releases from every major studio have been pushed back, some by more than a year. Broadway’s curtains won’t rise all summer. And television production has ground to a halt.   Without a doubt, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the entertainment industry for the short term. But what about the long term?   Several prominent attorneys—representing clients ranging from […]

Backlog of Cases Awaits a Court System Stalled by COVID-19

Lawsuits are threatened but courts aren't hearing them

Monday, June 1, 2020 A New York City wedding for 350 guests was set for May, but the biggest inadvertent party-pooper—not on the guest list—was Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Enforcing a government shutdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, festivities ground to a halt before things even started. Was anyone surprised? The happily-ever-after event was on a collision course with government restrictions. With 33,000 people dead and dying in the tri-state area due to […]

Down on the Farm, COVID Concerns Sprout

Risks are growing for migrants and growers alike

Friday, May 29, 2020 With an estimated 85 percent of the U.S. salad crop sprouting from California’s Salinas Valley, it’s small wonder why the people who harvest it are deemed essential workers by the federal government.  With those workers often subject to thankless, back-breaking and low-wage labor under a blazing sun, growers have long looked south of the border or even across the Pacific to […]

M&A Goes MIA During COVID-19

Investors are waiting out the crisis, while distressed companies can be had cheap

Friday, May 22, 2020 After a record-setting decade, the number of private equity firms buying companies has slowed.  According to data from Dealogic, M&A volume in the U.S. plummeted a jaw-dropping 50.2 percent compared to the same period last year. Worldwide, there was a 35.5 percent decrease in M&A volume and 16.3 percent drop in revenue.   The reason isn’t a mystery. With the COVID-19 pandemic […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
