Nancy Fox Ardell – Enlivant

At 9 a.m. on Tuesday, a paralegal in Enlivant’s legal department opens the contract email box to find a newly submitted contract. After perusing it, the team member emails the sender to let him know which attorney will review and negotiate the contract. Later that day, Enlivant’s general counsel, Nancy Ardell, hops on the legal […]

National Legal Research Group

There’s no such thing as run-of-the-mill legal research, says John F. Buckley IV, who knows a thing or two about the subject. Buckley is the president of the oldest and largest legal research firm in the U.S., the National Legal Research Group (NLRG). The firm, founded in 1969, offers what it calls “specialized legal research […]

Nicholas Dalmaso – M1 Finance

More than once, he went into the startup’s office at 2 or 3 a.m. to check on gas lines. He helped set up and maintain electrical systems; washed desks and did other janitorial work; accompanied salespeople out in the field as they pitched products. “The thing about startups is you wear a lot of hats,” […]

Nicolás Cuadros – Philip Morris International

Between 2013 and 2016 the number of adults aged 25 to 44 who used e-cigarettes nearly doubled. Each day, thousands of smokers are switching to smoke-free alternatives, designed to create a flavorful nicotine-containing vapor, without burning and smoke. It’s a trend that many cigarette manufacturers are hoping is a flash in the pan—a hiccup in […]

Nicolás Ruiz– Falck/Grupo Emi

The waiting may be the hardest part for anyone visiting a hospital emergency room, and there will be plenty of it. In the U.S., ER wait times range from an average of 11 minutes in Utah to 49 minutes in Washington, D.C. The time until a patient is sent home averages 91 minutes in North […]

Nicolás Villarreal – Grupo Proeza

You can learn a lot about someone from their LinkedIn page. Not just their core strengths and various alma maters, but how their career path foreshadows where they might be headed next. When one scans Nicolás Villarreal’s page, two things are immediately clear: He sees no need for a profile picture, and the three logos […]

Nicole Liebman – WithumSmith+Brown

Whenever Nicole Liebman is running low on dinner party small talk, she can always recount the time she was flown business class to London for the deposition of a very well-known singer on tour, only to be stood up. Even the more “boring” details are sure to send eyebrows rising. About how she represented the […]

Nicoline Huizinga – The Fashion Lawyer

As a female attorney who is also savvy and passionate about fashion, Nicoline Huizinga gets the “Legally Blonde” thing all the time. “It is very difficult,” she says. “You are being judged—the way I speak, the way I look, my accent, the way I smile, the way I dress.” But the avowed fashionista takes such […]

Norman Gonzalez Mendez – Quala

It’s no small task to monitor the comings and goings of 1,300 trucks every month—but Norman Gonzalez Mendez and his team have been able to do that and, through vigilant efforts, keep internal and external product theft to a near-nil 0.0001 percent. It’s just one of the many initiatives Mendez oversees as head of the […]

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.
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.
