Elizabeth Bowles – Aristotle Inc.

She can’t lay claim to the study, but Elizabeth Bowles eagerly cites Purdue University agricultural economists who last year concluded that every dollar invested in broadband brings a long-term, four-fold economic return to Indiana. The formula brings tangible benefits most everywhere, Bowles says, including her home state of Arkansas where she serves as president, chairwoman […]

Ellen Sheedy – KEEN

While working as an attorney at Perkins Coie in Portland, Oregon, Ellen Sheedy would often take quick breaks to walk around the neighborhood. During these jaunts, she says she probably passed the global headquarters of footwear company KEEN 1,000 times. Sheedy knew that the company had a long-standing connection to making the outdoors accessible, a passion […]

Ellis Rosenzweig – CyberGRX

That data breaches are invasive, expensive and frightening is not news. What’s less known is that some of the worst breaches—including the 2013 theft of data from the Target retail chain—are not a result of direct hacks. Instead, hackers can work their way into a corporate network or database through their vendors or third parties. […]

Emilia Mesquita – Banco Itau Paraguay

Time was when Emilia Mesquita envisioned a diplomatic career and saw a law degree as the portal. The more experience she gained, however, the less she perceived diplomacy as the most effective way of fashioning societal, much less global, change. “I realized I could accomplish more in law than in diplomacy,” she tells Vanguard in […]

Emily Bennett – Jackson National Asset Management LLC

Whether its discovering boutique wineries in California’s Napa Valley or vetting mutual fund disclosures, “purpose” is the word Emily Bennett bears in mind. As assistant vice president and deputy general counsel for Jackson National Asset Management LLC, Bennett’s purpose there is helping the company provide retirement solutions. “It’s important to me to know our work […]

Emma Channing — Satis Group LLC

Emma Channing says about 70 percent of Americans have less than $5,000 in their 401(k) accounts—and that’s not OK. In fact, the CEO and general counsel of Satis Group says the numbers amount to a ticking time bomb. The casualties? They’re more likely to be women—and those earning less income. That situation is among the […]

Enrique Aguilar – Grupo IGS

Grupo IGS keeps growing in Mexico, and General Counsel Enrique Aguilar helps make sure it is growing right. The private equity firm is near to closing a deal for industrial properties worth $140 million. It is looking at new affordable housing opportunities. The breadth of its holdings spreads throughout the country and tests Aguilar’s abilities […]

Eric Banta – Voya

Eric Banta fell in love with Colorado as a young man, drawn to the mountains, the skiing and the climate as a backdrop to his studies. By the time he joined the corporate legal department for ING U.S. in 1996, the state had become something else: home. So when the financial services company (rebranded as […]

Eric Gross – Sapphire Digital

Few things frighten Americans like unexpected health care expenses. A 2018 Kaiser Family Foundation poll found 67 percent of respondents worry about unexpected medical bills more than they worry about prescription drug costs, insurance deductibles, or even paying for rent, food and gas. Though Eric Gross can’t prevent those bills from occurring, he’s helping people […]

Eric Ian Schwartz – Integra LifeSciences

Medical device manufacturers beset by an array of unanticipated issues in the face of an unprecedented pandemic might benefit from virtual get-togethers. Such was the point raised earlier this year by the legal team at Integra LifeSciences, a leading global manufacturer of medical technologies and solutions. Companies could find middle ground between competition and cooperation, […]

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.
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.
