Julia Hanft – Transit Wireless

Being among the countless New York City subway riders who wants to make the most of her time getting from point A to point B, Julia Hanft had taken advantage of Transit Wireless’ offerings long before becoming its first in-house general counsel this past June. A veteran telecommunications lawyer who ran her own firm for […]

Julia Oltmanns – Zurich North America

The term wasn’t in the corporate vernacular during the mid-2000s but Julia Oltmanns was already applying DEI initiatives—diversity, equity, inclusion—as an employment lawyer elsewhere. When she joined the legal staff at the Chicagoland headquarters of Zurich North America in 2016, she found herself among kindred souls. Now, she considers her employer one of the world’s […]

Juliana Cobb – Nana Development Corp.

The way Juliana Cobb looks at it, she was given the benefit of a few months’ head start when her longtime employer, NANA Development Corp., informed in June that it would no longer need her services as senior corporate counsel. Having been in-house counsel for what has been known as WHPacific, Inc. since 1998 and […]

Juliana Ugarelli – Getinge

They’ve long been used to save lives, but ventilators quickly became one of the most sought-after machines as the COVID-19 pandemic arrived. In Brazil, where Juliana Ugarelli is head of legal for Latin America for Getinge, helping provide its ventilators, as well as other medical devices, has been among the most rewarding times of her […]

Julie Delker – Phoenix Contact USA

Each August, baseball fans flock to Williamsport, Pennsylvania, for the annual Little League World Series played on diamonds throughout the city. There’s glory to be found on those dusty base paths, as well as aspirations for pro careers in big league ballparks. It’s not likely those fans will notice the Lycoming County Courthouse nearby—the blocky […]

Julie Elliott – The Annex Group

Commute to campus, attend class, commute back home, put in eight hours at work, find time to study—repeat. In the simplest of terms, this was Julie Elliott’s undergraduate college experience. And it’s not unlike that of many degree-seekers. With more people of all ages and a diversity of backgrounds attending college, the so-called “non-traditional” student […]

Julie Ortmeier – CARFAX Inc.

It’s always buyer beware in the used-car market, but it’s been especially so since autumn 2017 when hundreds of thousands of vehicles were soaked by Texas and Florida floodwaters following Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Many of them could wind up for sale all over the country. Their appearances notwithstanding, it’s what’s under the hood […]

Julie Pine – Lead Bank

It can be difficult to get a credit card if you have bad credit or no credit at all. Many banks don’t trust young people or people with low credit and deny them loans or cards. Lead Bank gives customers the benefit of the doubt, though, and works with them to build their credit responsibly, […]

Jun Yamato – Roland Corporation US

Sure, most everyone knows the music of Rihanna, Snoop Dogg and Pink, but do most people know about the instruments those artists use to create their distinctive sound? Jun Yamato does. He negotiates contracts for Lady Gaga, “The Voice” TV show and other artists to use instruments from Roland. But as the Japanese company’s longtime […]

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.
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.
