This principle, known as the Economic Loss Rule or the Economic Loss Doctrine, was championed […]

An approach that’s par for any course

As every golfer knows, you’ve got to play by the rules: Where you can drop a second ball after hitting the first into a pond or the woods. How you may address a ball in the bunker. Whether conditions allow for preferred lies. About mulligans: None, at least not while playing for keeps. Joe Nauman […]

An attorney brings the wire and cable industry home

As a child growing up in the suburbs of Toronto, Canada, Burt Fealing always believed the corporate attorney was the “James Bond” of the business world. “These were the individuals who were often flown into a location, meeting in a secret room and structuring the transactions that were helping to shape and define the world,” […]

An energy source well-acquitted

Her sole client being North America’s sixth largest coal producer, Jennifer S. Grafton is quick to advocate for the much-maligned energy source whose use has seen a decline over the past five years, but remains necessary if the lights are to stay on after sundown. “I am not a technical person, but I can tell […]

An unlikely angle for activism: architecture

Like many lawyers, Juli Faris Bruce chose the legal path because she was an idealist; she wanted to make the world a better place.

That’s […]

Angela Lozano – Title Forward

Anyone who’s been involved in a real estate transaction of any kind knows how cumbersome the process can be.

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.
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.
