Dan Anixt – Right Sourcing Solutions/R$2

It goes on day in, day out, at companies big and small across the globe: employees are hammering out contracts and agreements, closing deals, signing on dotted lines. But think about it, says Dan Anixt: With staff turnover, hectic schedules, employee and management disconnect, and just the sheer number of contracts and agreements at any […]

Dan Barsky – Fluent Inc.

As the general counsel, chief compliance officer and secretary at one of the nation’s fastest growing, most innovative companies, Fluent Inc.’s general counsel Dan Barsky brings decades of legal experience to the startup realm.

Dan Dillon – Novel Energy Solutions

While some solar companies only serve one function, Dan Dillon says the one he works for is a little more, well, novel. Aptly named, Novel Energy Solutions develops land for solar infrastructure, constructs solar gardens and facilities, and oversees their operations by maintaining equipment and managing subscribers. Dillon, the company’s general counsel, says this vertical […]

Dan Gravel – Linear Financial Technologies

It was one complex corporate transaction in February 2021 that Dan Gravel oversaw as legal and compliance boss of Fundation Group, a small-business lender in Reston, Virginia. His employer of six years along with another firm, the OnDeck subsidiary ODX, were selling their assets to assemble Linear Financial Technologies, which provides a digital loan origination […]

Dan Happe – TSI

For Dan Happe, saying that his company had a busy and successful past 18 months would be a huge understatement. In fact, during that time, the company probably did its most important work ever, he says. Shoreview, Minnesota-based TSI Incorporated makes respirator testing devices that gauge the fit of N95 masks—one of the most reliable […]

Dan Mumford – Bell Textron

While piloting Black Hawks for the U.S. Army, Dan Mumford learned the challenges of maneuvering and hovering the helicopters using controls attached to the rotors and tail assemblies by cables. Now the deputy general counsel for Bell Textron, he’s helping to replace those cables with wireless controls in commercial helicopters. He says this can reduce […]

Dan Schwarzenbach – Sunland Construction

While squishing through the oozing mud, the marsh buggy trundles slowly through the murky shallow waters. This excavator on two pontoons needs to touch the ground in order to operate. Then the excavator’s bucket reaches out and disappears down into the brown water with a loud dunk. It scoops up the muck under the marsh, […]

Dan Zavodnick – Kedrion Biopharma

For some, finding a career path is a matter of choice. For Dan Zavodnick, it was more a matter of circumstance and necessity. In October of 2008, one year after landing at a prominent New Jersey law firm, Zavodnick was laid off, along with the firm’s other first-year associates, victims of the country’s deepening recession. […]

Daniel Altikes – Antofagasta Minerals

After spending several years learning the nuances of the mining industry—from early-stage exploration to every aspect of the mining operation—Daniel Altikes was given his biggest challenge to date: Help Chilean-based Antofagasta Minerals broaden its international presence. A small country in the African continent was one of the first stops. From the second he stepped off […]

Daniel Deitch – NFI Industries

Eighteen years ago, Daniel Deitch was deep into plaintiff-sided civil litigation work, most notably handling personal injury cases, plying his trade at a boutique firm in Center City Philadelphia. Already several years into the civil litigation game—which he describes as “nasty and often lacking in basic civility”—Deitch started to question his relationship with the legal […]

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.
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.
