Roland M. “Ron” Lowell – Western Express

When it rains, it pours, but the strong endure. Such seemed the case at Western Express for much of 2020, the Nashville-based trucking and logistics operation faced with threefold adversity but keeping the big wheels rolling. First were tornados sweeping through parts of Tennessee and adjoining states in early March, damaging and destroying some parts […]

Romy Horn – W2O

Like the digs of their C-suite neighbors, every general counsel’s office has its visual centerpieces—items such as diplomas on the wall or leather bound books meant to capture the visitor’s attention or even show off. Romy Horn hopes you notice the bowl of candy on her desk. From Tootsie Rolls to Jolly Ranchers, the dish […]

Ron Palmese – Shake Shack

Like many young lawyers in firms, Ron Palmese was mindful of his professional growth being limited by having to concentrate on a specific area of practice and thus not being exposed to the big picture for a client. Much as he enjoyed transactional law, Palmese didn’t feel satisfied enough with his level of involvement in […]

Ron Vaisbort – MemSQL Inc.

Ron Vaisbort hopes it will serve as a manifesto for in-house counsel—a position he describes as a company’s “Chief Problem Solver.” The as yet untitled book, which he is co-writing with Marisa McGilliard, associate general counsel of Facebook, describes corporate counsel not only as legal minds, but as subject matter experts who use their legal […]

Ron Zollman – Boomi

In both his career and personal life, Ron Zollman has found that small things can have a big impact. For instance, as a lawyer and as a nonprofit volunteer, he’s discovered that lots can be accomplished by small teams dedicated to whom they’re serving. Whether growing a company or supporting his community, he relies on […]

Rosanna Marrero Neagle – Nestlé Dreyer’s Ice Cream/Nespresso USA

By 2009, two years into her role as general counsel for Nestlé Dreyer’s Ice Cream/Nespresso USA, Rosanna Marrero Neagle felt as if things were beginning to settle. The flood of paperwork and internal policy tweaks stemming from the 2006 Dreyer’s acquisition had slowed to a manageable flow; the late hours and weekend work, replaced by […]

Rosemary Colliver – LAIKA

There are few disciplines more detailed, more granular, than stop-motion animation, the filmmaking technique pioneered in the late 19th century that is in the midst of a digital-age renaissance. As proof of that claim, just consider the 129,000 individual frames that comprise a 90-minute film. Or talk to Rosemary Colliver, general counsel and head of […]

Ross Epstein – NFP

From the time he could barely see over the counter at his father’s hardware store in New Jersey, Ross Epstein remembers working with customers, learning the joys and pains of running a small business. Years later, Epstein is still taking these lessons to heart, channeling his father Allan’s approach at New York City-based NFP—a national […]

Roxy Bargoz – Avant

For a general counsel operating in one of the country’s most demanding industries, the work was about as high stakes as it gets: a protracted legal battle between two Colorado fintech companies (and their respective banking partners) and the state’s attorney general. At the heart of the dispute was whether the plaintiffs, Avant and Marlette […]

Royce Warrick – Solenis

When Royce Warrick left a longtime position as commercial legal director of a Fortune 100 chemical manufacturer’s multibillion dollar business based in downtown Philadelphia, it was for a more expansive—and maybe more adventurous—role, down the highway in Wilmington, Delaware. For that was where, just days earlier in July 2014, Solenis had sprung from what had […]

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.
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.
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.
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.
