Kamili Moreland – AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah

Flat tire? Dead battery? Overheated engine? Need a tow? Been in an accident? Just call the number on the card and within an hour’s time, one of AAA’s providers will likely be beside your troubled vehicle. Or maybe your house, if it’s been damaged by fire or falling limbs, and you had the foresight to […]

Karen Bechtold – Teva Pharmaceuticals

Pushing the boundaries of where science meets law makes for some interesting days for patent attorney Karen Bechtold at Teva Pharmaceuticals. Take, for example, one of Teva’s applications tentatively approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Parkinson’s Disease. It details a system for delivering a generic medication through the skin rather than by […]

Karina Sol – Celanese

From dashboards to toothpaste, Celanese makes the compounds, polymers and parts used in the automotive, medical, agriculture, electronics and food industries in 27 plants spread around the globe. In Mexico and Brazil, where the global chemical and specialty materials producer has two plants each, its acetyl and amine products are used in compounds such as […]

Karla Baez Elizondo – Grupo Idesa

It can’t get much more satisfying than to see the fruits of one’s labor, Karla Baez Elizondo muses from her office in Mexico City this past spring, after helping to consummate a deal that opens up further opportunities for Grupo Idesa. And how the past four years have flown. Baez came aboard as general counsel […]

Karla Jones-Wilson – Foutch Brothers LLC

For years, every time Karla Jones-Wilson visited the 19,500-seat Kemper Arena, whether for a college basketball game or Disney On Ice with her kids, she couldn’t help but think she was enjoying the Kansas City landmark for the last time. By 2015, the arena—like many built in the 1970s—had fallen on hard times, precipitated by […]

Kate Peterson – Citizens Bank

On a Tuesday afternoon in late October, just months after competing with 4,500 peers to win the 2018 Global Counsel Employment Lawyer of the Year Award, Kate Peterson prefaced her first interview with Vanguard with a confession: She’d come to work in mismatching shoes, and she was just realizing it. Such is the self-effacing way […]

Kate Proctor – Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care

When Kate Proctor sat down with the CEO of Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care in 2014 to discuss becoming the organization’s first in-house counsel, her commitment was far from set in stone. Her private practice career was thriving, and besides, she was already serving as Seasons’ dedicated outside counsel. After a three-hour conversation, buoyed by […]

Kathryn Holt Richardson – HR Legal Search

Could be mom tampered with that fortune cookie. Not that she’d ever so admit. But if she did, her daughter just might give her the biggest of hugs. For as Kathy Richardson explains, her initial inclination was to be a career counselor, something she was finding time to do even while majoring in international affairs […]

Kathryn Stalmack – BioScrip

By 2015, Kathryn Stalmack had reached a comfortable place in her career. She had made partner at a prominent healthcare practice in Chicago, Polsinelli PC, earning the firm’s trust and building her own client base. “I loved my job and I was working for one of the best healthcare firms in the country,” she says. […]

Katie Norton – ASRC Federal Holding Company

It’s a career path that runs from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center to above the Arctic Circle—with a cameo on the “Jimmy Fallon Show” thrown in for good measure—but Katie Norton says it’s not hard to follow. “There’s a lot about my story that’s nontraditional in the legal industry,” she says. “I wasn’t a person […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
