Last year, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center faced a critical crossroads at which treatment for hundreds of patients hung in the balance. There was one treatment many patients desperately needed, and the pharmaceutical company that provided it was having problems with its supply chain. Eventually, representatives of that […]

Jonathan Reich – Grid Market Research

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Ever loquacious and entertaining, Jonathan Reich can make for good company at cocktail parties. Yet, he jokes—perhaps half-seriously—that other attorneys edge away in fear for their safety after learning about his practice. If so, they’re probably overreacting but there’s no denying that Reich’s experiences are not shared widely—if at all—among his legal brethren in high […]

For broken bones, heart attacks or severe allergic reactions, most people know of only one mode of transportation to receive urgent medical attention: ambulances. However, non-emergency transportation for preventative care, life-sustaining dialysis, chemotherapy or post-operative follow-ups isn’t quite so simple, particularly for people who don’t have access to reliable transportation. That’s where Modivcare’s non-emergency medical […]

While music has always been her passion, law became Jovan Richardson’s primary interest. And early on, she recognized that an entertainer or author doesn’t succeed through talent alone. “You’ve got to be business-savvy and protect your rights,” she says. “I was recording and singing and writing my own material and realized I could be taken […]

There’s nothing like total immersion to appreciate the mission of a new employer. All the better if it enables one to make a difference at a most critical juncture.

Jennifer Lee – Corus Entertainment

“What’s on tonight?” has become a very complicated question. It even involves what’s on which device—a laptop, a phone or a high-def TV screen complemented by a sound system than can rattle the plates in the China cabinet. It’s also a question that shapes Jennifer Lee’s role as executive vice president and general counsel for […]

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.
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.
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.
