Alice Davidson – Mogo

The Department of No. If you’ve ever worked for a corporate legal division, or so much as shared the same building, chances are you’ve heard the adage—that backhanded nod to the legal function’s joyless, fundamentally defensive posture. Truth be told, no is a word Alice Davidson is more than happy to use. So long as […]

Alison Wisniewski – Epiq

More than any contract or services agreement, the most important pact Alison Wisniewski has ever been involved in was the one she made with herself. If she scored at least a 160 on the LSATs, she would leave her paralegal job, along with the acting career she’d dreamed of since childhood and go to law […]

Allison Nagelberg – Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation

On her birthday, Allison Nagelberg asked every employee at Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation to name a charity they wanted to support. Then she donated $100 to each charity. She got the idea from her dad, who was an executive at Prudential Insurance Company for nearly his entire career. On his 60th birthday, he asked […]

Allyson Guy Krause – Promethean

Students have taken personalized tours of the White House, spoken with a park ranger halfway around the world on the topic of adaptation, and even tinkered with protons, neurons and electrons—without having to worry about blowing anything up. Those are just a few examples of how Promethean’s interactive educational products are being used in classrooms […]

Alon Rotem – thredUP

Alon Rotem remembers receiving a phone call from a customer who bought a used purse from thredUP. From all outward appearances everything was as advertised: the design, the condition, the way she imagined it looking on her shoulder. When the customer reached inside, however, she found something she didn’t expect: $500 in cash. The purse […]

Alvaro Martinez – Sodexo (Latin America)

If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve met a CEO or two. The same goes for general counsels. Even if you haven’t met any, you know about them. Seeing someone wear both hats at once? You might’ve just found a corporate unicorn. Only, you needn’t scour some ethereal forest to find Alvaro Martinez. He’s out […]

Always gassed and ready to go

Houston was the proverbial tale of two cities in early September when Kevin Feeney, chief legal officer and senior vice president to one of the region’s major corporations, found time for an interview with Vanguard. “Parts of this city are still underwater but our main office is fine,” said Feeney, who runs the Americas side […]

Amanda Auer – Lawrence Group

Her official title is corporate counsel, but Amanda Auer plays many roles at Lawrence Group a leading design, development and project delivery firm headquartered in St. Louis. “My role changes day to day,” explains Auer. “I’m part developer, part attorney.” Auer is St. Louis local to the core. She grew up in the Gateway City […]

Amanda Matchett – Infor

Amanda Matchett says her career trajectory may differ from that of others coming right out of law school, but the path she has taken into the technology field is one that is open to diversity. “The tech world has great opportunities for women of color as a career option,” she says. Infor is a New […]

American Council of Engineering Companies

Design professionals applauded a ruling earlier this year, by the Maryland Court of Appeals, upholding a lower court ruling protecting a company against claims for purely economic damages by a contractor with whom it did not have a contractual agreement. This principle, known as the Economic Loss Rule or the Economic Loss Doctrine, was championed […]

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.
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.
