Saygus

He’s an innovator by trade and a visionary by philosophy, but Chad Sayers—unlike the other folks profiled in Vanguard—is no lawyer. Having never completed his undergrad studies at Dixie College, the only diploma Sayers can claim is from the school of hard knocks. But it’s there where the energetic and sometimes eccentric man thinks he […]

Sbarro

The owner of a casual, family-style Italian restaurant in North Canton, Ohio, Mark Inzetta knows the recipe for success in the risky endeavor of serving food to customers and hoping they’ll make a habit out of coming back often. His restaurant—Mama Guzzardi’s—is noted for its mouth-watering lasagna, but that alone won’t keep the place viable. […]

Scott Boylan – MorphoTrust USA

The nation still reeling from the Sept. 11 attacks of the year before, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security came into being in late 2002, and among the early advisers to Secretary Tom Ridge was a lawyer in his early 40s who had built up credentials as impressive as they were esoteric. Scott Boylan was […]

Scott C. Weatherholt – Weatherford International

He seems prone to understatements mixed with dry humor, “an eventful year” being how Scott C. Weatherholt describes his first anniversary with Weatherford International. It’s also been a productive year, the Irish-domiciled and Houston-headquartered oilfield servicer having regained stability since emerging from bankruptcy court in December 2019 with $2.7 billion in debt. That preceded Weatherholt […]

Scott Jacobson – RAB Lighting

Whether arriving in a flash or through years of painstaking thought, inspiration has long illuminated the lighting industry. It’s a trend that continues today, as light emitting diodes (better known as LEDs) deliver better, longer lasting light that requires less energy consumption. As general counsel and chief intellectual property counsel for RAB Lighting, Scott Jacobson […]

Scott Kassman – Neustar Inc.

No man ever steps into the same river twice. So mused the Greek philosopher Heraclitus, articulating that, just as water flows, so does everything else in this world. That includes the telecommunications industry, which flows faster than just about any enterprise. So when Scott Kassman, who cut his professional teeth on telecommunications law, joined Neustar […]

Scott Laughlin – Plaza Home Mortgage

It’s easy enough to advise people to expect the unexpected. Scott Laughlin put those words into action at Plaza Home Mortgage—even though the unexpected was beyond anything he’d ever imagined. As Plaza’s Senior Corporate Counsel and CISO Laughlin focused on security first, after joining the company in October 2015, merging his legal and technology expertise […]

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, […]

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.
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.
