Follett Corporation

One of the best lessons Mark Sproat ever learned wasn’t at Loyola University Chicago School of Law; it came well after establishing himself as a capable and ambitious in-house lawyer at the former Hewitt Associates, an Illinois-based human capital, outsourcing and management consulting firm that became Aon Hewitt following its 2010 acquisition by the British […]

Formitex Group

It takes the eyes of an optimist to see light at the end of the dark tunnel that’s become the Brazilian economy. Amira Chammas’ vision is tempered by reality, but she won’t blink in the face of the challenges that confront even a well-run company in a very troubled country. “With the right moves by […]

Francisco Pinilla – Uber (Latin America)

For most of us, using Uber—an app that literally puts transportation at your fingertips—represents the pinnacle of modern convenience. Francisco Pinilla doesn’t think that superlative goes nearly far enough. As legal director and head of legal transactions for the company’s Latin America operations (LATAM for short), Pinilla understands how Uber’s model and methods have not […]

Frederick Frankel – Aperion Care

It was everything Fred Frankel could’ve hoped for: a well-paying job helping people, in a business he’d one day inherit—a group of Illinois nursing homes operated by his father, Charles Frankel, during the ‘80s and ‘90s. But when the elder Frankel passed away suddenly in 1997, complications with the business left Fred feeling disillusioned. Having […]

Fritz Fiethen – Acino International AG

A lawyer-to-be may derive inspiration from many sources, be they genuine or celluloid. Fritz Fiethen might only have been 10 or 12 when he became intrigued with the 1990 legal drama “Presumed Innocent,” starring Harrison Ford as a very compromised prosecutor named Rusty Sabich, but it made quite an impact on his young mind.

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.
