Robert Cordy

The news from Turkey is upsetting—an apparent democracy turned police state under the iron fist of a president turned sultan reincarnate—and it causes personal anguish for Robert J. Cordy. A former associate justice on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court (SJC), who returned to private practice last year, Cordy has for many years been active on […]

Robert Rosen – Kenon Holdings

Robert Rosen will be the first to tell you that not much may make sense about the turns his professional life has taken in the past few years. A self-proclaimed tech geek, the law never really has been the sole passion of this adventurous 45-year-old from New Jersey who, last autumn, shed the general counsel […]

Roberto Paes

Contrary to what corporate America says, sabbaticals aren’t just another way for millennials to scheme and snowflake their way into being lazy or getting more vacation time. Attorneys especially, may be steered away from time off. There are plenty of lawyers out there, the logic goes. Plenty of executives, too. Pulling less than 60 hours […]

Robin Smith – LEGO Systems Inc.

Little children worldwide are finding that playing with LEGO bricks engages both their brains and hands in ways that their video games will not, and the international toymaker could not agree more. That was among the reasons that Robin Smith, the Americas vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary, found herself in Shanghai in late […]

Rodrigo Cárdenas Valenzuela – Laureate International Universities

Once completed in early 2019, the 37,000-square-meter Universidad Latina de Costa Rica (ULCR) will be nothing short of commanding. Located in Heredia, just north of the country’s San Jose capital, the sprawling three-story complex will feature stately palm trees and a vertical wall of living grass. But it’s the flags lining the main entrance of […]

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 […]

Rudolph Technologies Inc.

Bob Koch—that’s Koch as in Cook, not Coke—never lacked for intellectual curiosity, and he had the resume to prove it, when Rudolph Technologies Inc. was looking for a general counsel in the spring of 2003. It wasn’t just legal acumen that Rudolph wanted; someone also well-versed in business would have an edge. Even more so […]

Testimonials

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.
