Scott Shepherd – ScaleFactor

The clichés would have ScaleFactor Chief Legal Officer Scott Shepherd landing on his feet, his boots on the ground as the Austin, Texas, company embarks on a new round of growth. And indeed, the clichés are true, as Shepherd becomes the company’s first in-house attorney, bringing a combination of military and legal experience with him […]

Scott Summers – Veeva

It’s a long way from small-town Kentucky to offices in Belarus, but Scott Summers has made the journey—with stops in Arkansas, Minnesota, Paris and Barcelona along the way. Now the associate general counsel for cloud computing giant Veeva, Summers is the sole attorney handling employment and labor matters. And as the company quickly assumes global […]

Sean Dennison – CenterCal Properties LLC

No single project can make a career for a real estate attorney, but each can end one. Sean Dennison kept this in mind as his company embarked on the first phase of the massive mixed-use redevelopment in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland, Washington. The Village at Totem Lake it’s called, and since commencing in 2015, […]

Sean Hughes — Tabcorp

In Australia, the first Tuesday of every November is the Melbourne Cup, the most prestigious thoroughbred horse race in the country and a nationwide tradition since 1861. In 2017, it was also the day that Vanguard spoke with attorney Sean Hughes of Tabcorp, a major sponsor of the Melbourne Cup carnival and one of the […]

Sean Jamieson – Spire

It’s a commodity that enables so many aspects of everyday life, from helping us cook dinner to heating our homes. Welcome to the world of natural gas. While the U.S. relies heavily on this safe and affordable product, some do have questions. But Sean Jamieson, general counsel for the commodity and midstream businesses of Spire […]

Sean Radcliffe – R1 RCM

Imagine you just started working in the sales department of a fast-growing company. You’re about to embark on a week-long trip to San Francisco to meet with potential clients and one question in particular has been nagging you to no end: “What if they want to see our contract?” At your last job, you’d need […]

Sean Sullivan – Duckhorn Portfolio

Ensuring employee safety and keeping the business running—these two goals need not be mutually exclusive. After all, ensuring employee safety is good business. It’s just that for much of this year COVID-19 has presented unprecedented challenges to both goals for many industries. And this includes winemaking, an essential industry with elements of farming, production, sales […]

Sébastien Guénette – Juul Labs Canada

Quite the corporate change that Sébastien Guénette signed on for in June 2019. He just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to apply his legal and business credentials as Juul Labs Canada committed to transitioning millions of adult smokers from combustible cigarettes while combatting underage use of its products. While there would be short-term losses, the company and him saw […]

Seeing clearly in vertical markets

Some insights can only come from weathering 17 years in the legal hot seat. That, says Suzanne Niemeyer, just about sums up her role as general counsel and managing director at Actua Corporation, a Radnor, Pennsylvania-based public company that owns and operates private businesses offering cloud-based software to customers in vertical markets, or markets that […]

Serge Sinanian – Sinanian Development Inc.

Details, details, details—with a potential deal-breaking devil lurking in each. Such is often the case when a company takes on design-build responsibilities for a massive public sector project. Take the Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies, a magnet public school in the Los Angeles County community of Reseda. Ranked among the nation’s best and most […]

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.
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.
