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 […]

Aamna Jalal – Televerde

Social progress notwithstanding, women at all levels in business face workplace obstacles largely spared to men. These obstacles increase for women with criminal backgrounds. So says Aamna Jalal who, since January, has been working with and providing support to women in prison through Televerde, a global inside sales and demand generation company based in Phoenix […]

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 […]

Abby Blomstrom – Monumental Sports & Entertainment

When Abby Blomstrom walked into her office at Monumental Sports & Entertainment in late September last year, her first hour was spent like any other weekday morning: checking emails, going over the day’s appointments, the usual minutaie. By 10, however, Blomstrom was switching gears. She met with the executive team to discuss and prepare for […]

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 Glick – Intercom

Finding a website is easy. Finding your way around one? Maybe not so much. But wait, there’s a message bubble in the lower right corner—someone is offering to help you with everything from a customer support question to making a purchase decision. Customer-messaging technology is getting better all the time, with live chat, bots and […]

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 […]

Adam Wergeles – Leaf Group

These days, aspiring artists needn’t live in a garret (or always go hungry) to stick to their craft. Need proof? Look no further than Saatchi Art, a website that connects a community of more than 100,000 emerging artists from 100 countries to a global network of art buyers. It’s a new marketplace medium with millions […]

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.
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.
