Anthony Serventi – Bosch

Est. reading time: 4 mins

He’s been known to flash the yellow or cautionary light. If necessary, he’ll flash the red one too, although Anthony Serventi strives to avoid this outcome. As he explains, an in-house legal department must partner with the business side, albeit with prudence. That may be especially true for Serventi who’s vice president, legal counsel and […]

Alma Hawk – AT&T Mexico

Est. reading time: 4 mins

She relishes a role that’s disruptive for the better, which makes AT&T Mexico the ideal company for Alma Hawk. Though only in her 30s, she’s been part of the corporate legal team since early 2015, ascending last year to its director for marketing and governmental and business sales. The diverse responsibilities appeal to Hawk’s restless […]

Anne Fitzgerald – Cineplex

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When most people retire, their first move is to do something relaxing—a beach vacation or that trip to Paris they’d put off for years. Not Anne Fitzgerald. After retiring as chief legal officer at Cineplex, she spent 11 days snowshoeing on a 150-kilometer route crossing the Arctic Circle on Canada’s Baffin Island. For the first […]

Andrea Halverson Harper – Pepco Holdings

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Her recent reunion at the University of Virginia School of Law was a joyous occasion with midcareer attorneys basking in the Southern charm of Charlottesville. The all-nighters, the moot courts, the paper chases of decades ago, the brushing up on Latin—it all seemed worth it. Maybe even more so for Andrea Halverson Harper, a proud […]

Adel Sander – Ascend Performance Materials

Est. reading time: 4 mins

At the height of the pandemic in 2020, N95 masks—recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for protection against COVID-19—were rapidly selling out and vaccines were frustratingly far on the horizon. Making matters worse, counterfeit personal protection equipment was flooding the market as demand far outpaced supply. According to Adel Sander, Ascend […]

Amanda Richards – RPC/Cudd Energy Services

Est. reading time: 3 mins

Imagine being handed not one but 20 contracts. At 40 pages long each, they can take two days to review—and they need to be reviewed immediately. Now, imagine software that can review the contracts in the time it takes someone to grab a much-needed cup of coffee. That’s the power of artificial intelligence. For General […]

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.
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.
