Jaime Orvañanos – WeWork

Whenever Jaime Orvañanos visits one of his company’s far-flung offices, he always takes time to look around. Throughout the space, he sees architects and graphic designers, writers and engineers. Some work collaboratively; others on their own. The verve seems contagious; the air alive with ideas. Then it’s off to the next city, to Buenos Aires […]

Jake Williams – Sportradar

For sports fans around the world, the mobile-phone revolution has ushered in a new age of instant-update convenience. Even if you forgot to DVR the big game, second-by-second stats and scores are never more than a swipe or two away, whether you’re waiting for coffee or headed to a friend’s for dinner—so long as you’re […]

James Cargas – City of Houston

There can be advantages to being the office rookie, and for James Cargas, among them was once being tucked in a corner of a Congressional office—away from the action and hubbub, but right next to the busy fax machine. That’s how he learned that Speaker Jim Wright was preparing to resign in 1989, days before […]

Jamie Cox – Lenovo

If your college-age daughter told you she planned to spend Christmas in a slum in India as part of her studies, you’d be forgiven some nervous dissuasion. Jamie Cox didn’t simply encourage daughter Ann’s altruistic impulse (and wanderlust); he tagged along for the ride. What he found on the other side, amid cacophony and swirling […]

Jan Dubauskas – The IHC Group

The sky is blue: True or false? Most of us would reflexively answer “true”—but at just 9 years old, Jan Dubauskas offered a whole different perspective. When posed that seemingly harmless control question during an entry test for private school, she confidently responded “false.” Later, when asked about her answer, she pointed out that sometimes […]

Jared Hunsaker – Entrata

When he first arrived at Entrata’s cramped corporate headquarters, then located on the dimly lit second floor of a credit union in Salt Lake City’s outskirts, Jared Hunsaker—the company’s sixtieth hire—had to share his cubicle with another coworker. Today, the seasoned general counsel is one of more than 1,600 employees. Meanwhile, the company’s revenue has […]

Jasmani Francis – SPM Capital Holdings

Jasmani Francis has never been one to fall into a routine or slip neatly into a stereotype. A native of inner-city Miami, Florida and an Illinois transplant, he is a lawyer, an entrepreneur, a sports memorabilia appraiser, a student of history and philosophy, a writer. Certainly he’s a reader. Recently, he’s picked up Frederic Bastiat’s […]

Jason Groves – Medifast

Jason Groves has been an attorney for more than 20 years, but it wasn’t until 2011 that he was personally thanked by clients for changing their lives. That was the year that Groves joined Medifast, a Maryland-based nutrition and weight loss company that had just nabbed the top spot on Forbes magazine’s list of America’s […]

Jason Maxwell – Hines Advisors

Jason Maxwell wasn’t necessarily an expert at global real estate when he became general counsel at Hines Advisors in 2006, but he’s nothing if not adaptable. Especially when there’s an opportunity to advance his employer as well as himself. “The world is an unpredictable place and you have to be proactive in managing that change,” […]

Jason Romrell – LeadsMarket.com

It’s a disturbing fact of economic life that approximately 40 percent of adults can’t cover a $400 emergency without selling property or taking out a loan, 30 percent have poor or bad credit, and millions more are credit invisible, making it difficult to secure financing. Not impossible, that is. Subprime lenders abound, especially online, willing […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
