William Deckelman – DXC Technology Co

One year after what he regards as the biggest challenge of his career as an in-house lawyer, William Deckelman didn’t sound like one of his pending responsibilities would be too overwhelming. That was getting the firm he helped create through a complex 2017 merger compliant with the new privacy laws taking effect in late May […]

William Morris – Vicarious Surgical

The daily duties of an in-house counsel are often described as a game of chess, but what intellectual property (IP) expert William Morris confronts is more like the ancient Chinese board game Go: three times the number of squares, 10 times the tiles and what feel like endless options at every turn. Between the reams […]

William Sawyers – Del Monte Foods Inc.

Word’s out about triple teaming in PR’s digital age

Three can indeed be company, even when the trio comprises companies that used to compete with one another in the high-stakes public relations world.  But they’re adding up to one integrated entity under Chicago-based PR heavyweight Cision, with much credit due the lawyer well-versed in hi-tech and the corporate legal world.

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.
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.
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.
