Vanguard Recognized at FOLIO: Eddie & Ozzie Awards

Competing against thousands, we’re on the short list for this honor

News Flash: Vanguard received Honorable mention in the B2B Full Issue category. Congrats to the team for all your hard work and making Vanguard an award-winning magazine year after year!


The case isn’t closed, but the evidence seems in our favor. For the third year running, Vanguard is a finalist for the FOLIO: Eddie & Ozzie Awards, an awards sought by around 2,000 other publications.

Preliminarily recognized for our design and international content, we will be getting the final word October 9, following a red carpet ceremony and dinner at the Hilton Midtown in New York City.

We have a good feeling about the outcome, but like the attorneys from around the world who we profile, we’re being prudent and keeping predictions to ourselves.

The early recognition marks the upcoming, third anniversary of Vanguard, which began early in 2016. An offshoot of a business publication, our mission is to give voice to corporate attorneys who often do more than legal work but aren’t recognized for their full roles in the business world.

In nearly three years, we have grown our readership dramatically, established coverage of world-renowned attorneys, and given well-deserved publicity to thousands of entrepreneurially minded general counsels and legal leaders who otherwise might be working in the dark.

The award nomination is a nice reminder of how far we’ve come, and we are grateful for all the attorneys who have shared their time and stories with us.

As ever, we’ll keep you posted.


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.

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.

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.
