Trying to get regulatory relief on the road

President Trump picked an appropriate locale to renew his infrastructure pitch in early June, the great American city of Cincinnati, where the Brent Spence Bridge over the Ohio River is said to top the list of national infrastructure emergencies. A threat to public safety and economics alike, it’s so deemed by The Hill—that District of […]

Ty Lufman – Smashburger

Ty Lufman is not afraid to roll up his shirtsleeves and bus a table as a corporate attorney for Smashburger. For a former semi-professional baseball player wannabe (who continues to play to this day), pitching in and being a team player seems to be part of his DNA. Admittedly, it’s been a bit of a […]

Ty Patton – McCurdy Auction LLC

If you were to bet on how many attorneys double as auctioneers, what would be the number? A few dozen? Is it in the hundreds? As both general counsel and auctioneer for McCurdy Auction LLC of Wichita, Kansas, Ty Patton thinks he may be the only one—at least for a little longer. As he chatted […]

Tyler Browning – ERI

It’s like a modern-day archaeological dig, a time capsule, with piles of trashed TVs in their ‘70s wooden consoles, discarded cell phones, funky VHS tapes and recorders, electronic gadgets from years gone by, and data containing devices from all walks of life—all can be found at ERI’s eight recycling facilities located around the country. For […]

Tyler Grim – Pantheon Global Holdings

They’re in it for the long haul, knowing full well this will be a slow and likely frustrating process with claims, counterclaims and then some. But it’s this principled approach as well as sound business practice, the general counsel of Pantheon Global Holdings emphasizes during a lively interview with Vanguard this past September. A precedent […]

Uche Ndumele – Pinnacle Foods

It was 2014, and for 35-year-old Uche Ndumele, life felt pretty close to perfect. He and his wife, Annie, had grown enamored with New York City. His employer, the online services giant AOL, was proving the perfect outlet for his bourgeoning securities and corporate governance expertise.

UFC GYM

Those who have never stepped foot in a UFC GYM might expect to see the facility constantly full of muscular men and women battling it out in the middle of an eight-sided, cage-enclosed fighting ring. After all, the Ultimate Fighting Championship organization—which blends disciplines like boxing, wrestling, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, sambo, karate and judo—is now a […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
