Pablo Urrego – Renault Sofasa

In 1980s Bogota, you couldn’t throw a rock without hitting a Renault 4. An economy hatchback first produced in 1966, it remains one of the French automaker’s most iconic models. In Colombia, as in other places, it was everywhere—a symbol of upward mobility in a country where economic stability was rarely a given. So when […]

Patricia Kim – Swanson

Poll any passenger boarding a flight from Los Angeles to Fargo, North Dakota, and he or she will probably tell you they’d just as soon stay put—emphatically so, should the trip occur in the dead of winter. Most, yes, but not all. And definitely not Patricia Kim. As general counsel for Swanson, one of the […]

Paul C. Nightingale – HP Hood

With the holiday season in full swing when Paul C. Nightingale spoke to Vanguard, cartons of Southern Comfort’s nonalcoholic eggnog were hitting the checkout counters at grocery stores everywhere. But what consumers might not have known was that their favorite spicy beverage only bears the brand name of the famous Dixie whiskey distiller. It’s actually […]

Paul D. Tanaka – Kirkland & Ellis

When Paul D. Tanaka interviewed for a position in 2006, with the global heavyweight firm of Kirkland & Ellis, he seemed to have all the credentials to acquit himself in the increasingly complicated area of environmental law. Though just 31, the University of Hawaii law grad had distinguished himself as a trial lawyer with the […]

Paul English Smith – Cabell Huntington Hospital

All that’s waiting is approval from the Vatican to allow one hospital to acquire the other in Huntington, West Virginia. That would be Cabell Huntington Hospital’s purchase of St. Mary’s Medical Center. The transaction has been in the works since the summer of 2014, and had to overcome initial concern from the Federal Trade Commission […]

Paul Kleppetsch – ITS Technologies and Logistics LLC

When Paul Kleppetsch was a kid, his idea of an exciting day off was visiting federal court. His aunt worked in the human resources department for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Whenever he could, he would go with his grandmother to sit in on the day’s various trials and […]

Paul Neumann – Trinity Health

Some people approach life like a blank canvas. Paul Neumann approaches life like a fresh piece of copper. Neumann is executive vice president and general counsel for Trinity Health, one of the largest multi-institutional Catholic health care delivery systems in the nation, serving more than 30 million people across 22 states, and headquartered in Livonia, […]

Pedro Frade – HSBC

Diversity has many meanings, and the general counsel for HSBC Brazil Investment Bank and HSBC Group Argentina thinks every single one is important. When Pedro Frade discusses workplace diversity, he’s not just talking euphemistically about employees who are of mixed ethnicity or a certain gender. Likewise, he’s not just using the term in that other, […]

Philip Kirkpatrick – Rabobank, North America

Tough competition notwithstanding, Philip Kirkpatrick can make a strong case as to why the company he now serves as regional general counsel may deserve a much coveted award this spring. For the Association of Corporate Counsel annually fields nominations from company legal departments that have distinguished themselves by smarts and innovation. Lawyers being a very […]

Pierre Gooding for Harlem

For Pierre Gooding’s family, Harlem had always been home. But after he was born in 1984, his mother had to face some unfortunate facts: The neighborhood in the Manhattan section of New York City, rife with unemployment and homelessness, simply wasn’t a place to raise a child, or provide him with the schooling he deserved. […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
