A natural-born litigator goes in-house and never looks back

Many general counsels admit to pursuing in-house roles as a way to avoid litigation, which after working in law firms, they discover an aversion to. That’s not the case with Randy Reaves, vice president and general counsel of Schnabel Engineering. Reaves is a litigator at heart. He grew up watching shows like Perry Mason and […]

A. Verona Dorch – Peabody

A. Verona Dorch was 11 years old when her family moved from London to the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. The borough was a far rougher place back then, and for families from a faraway country—even an English-speaking one—the adjustment could be harrowing. As she would in so many trials and tribulations to come, Dorch […]

ABB

A loving, supportive, stable household; good schooling; a future that doesn’t have to include poverty or the pervasive pattern of crime and corruption. Luis Radulov acknowledges that his family is different: While these things might be taken for granted in much of North America, they aren’t the norm for so many children in Brazil, a […]

Abercrombie & Kent

In the words of its loquacious general counsel, Michael Ellis, Abercrombie and Kent sells dreams. “Not only are we helping our guests tick off their bucket lists, in luxury, but we are creating new bucket list trips,” he told Vanguard this past summer. The venerable tour operator has been arranging the highest of high-end vacations […]

Abraham Ronai – Getinge Group

When Abraham Ronai was an undergraduate at Cornell University, he planned on becoming a mechanical engineer, not a lawyer. Then he interned at Pratt & Whitney, a jet engine manufacturer. While Ronai had always been interested in science, he couldn’t see himself working as an engineering manager or spending years constructing a single bolt. Instead, […]

Adam Kokas – Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings Inc.

Several years ago, legislation was drafted requiring airlines to install on each aircraft a secondary cockpit door designed to protect pilots from potentially dangerous passengers. For aircraft that carry passengers, it made sense. But newer all-cargo aircraft have open cockpits without doors or bulkheads.  Imposition of a requirement to install “secondary” doors on such aircraft […]

Adelaida Adames – Philip Morris International DO & Caribbean Markets

Times change for any industry, and Philip Morris International—the world’s most successful cigarette company—has long acknowledged the old axiom about smoking being hazardous to one’s health. It is aiming for a smoke-free future by promoting products such as e-cigarettes and technology that heats but doesn’t burn. That makes it an exciting time for Adelaida Adames, […]

AECOM Technical Services Inc.

For James K. Lowe, serving as assistant general counsel and vice president of one of two federal divisions of a global engineering giant is a natural continuation of his career, his engineering career, that is. Becoming a lawyer, beginning with classes at George Mason University’s School of Law, offered Lowe an opportunity to stay connected […]

Agenor Correa — Panama Canal Authority

For nearly ten years, government officials, construction companies and laborers worked to expand and improve the Panama Canal by making even more passable the 48 miles of manmade lakes, locks and infrastructure essential to the international transport of goods between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The major improvements included the addition of a third set […]

Albert Li—Ottobock HealthCare North America

There have to be times when Albert Li wishes there wasn’t such a need for Ottobock’s ingenuity. But if that need exists, he’s proud to serve as general counsel and compliance officer of the North American operations of the venerable German company that in 1919 began manufacturing artificial legs made so necessary by World War […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
