Darin Reber – Forever

If in every crisis there’s opportunity, the reverse may also hold true. Thus, the need to minimize crises and maximize opportunities. Darin Reber aims to do just that while overseeing legal and compliance at Forever, a very bifurcated company based in Scottsdale, Arizona. Its divisions: Forever Living Products International LLC, a multi-level international marketing operation, […]

Darren Moore – Appriss

Darren Moore left his previous position as an in-house M&A attorney because he wanted to return to be a generalist again. Naturally, one of his first big projects for his new employer was a transformative acquisition. “Shame on me for trying something new,” Moore says with a laugh. As chief legal officer for Appriss, he […]

Darron J. Flagg – PowerSchool

Secure in a choice legal role for 14 years at Intel Corp., Darron J. Flagg was deeply moved by a humanitarian trip as part of a team installing tech into a school in rural India. This, combined with a desire for a managerial position, intrigued Flagg when he saw an opportunity at PowerSchool in late […]

Darryl Lewis – Universal Insurance Holdings Inc.

Mind-boggling as the statistic may sound—74 percent of the nation’s property and casualty litigation being in Florida—it’s not that hard to fathom. Population-wise, it’s among the fastest growing states and, next to Alaska, has the longest coastline. That coastline also heavily built up—and not always according to code—and prone to increasingly severe weather and tidal […]

Darryl Mitchell – Fujitec

Darryl Mitchell took an unusual path on his journey to become chief legal officer at elevator manufacturer Fujitec America Inc. After five years in sales, the Columbia University grad returned to school to earn his law degree from University of Cincinnati College of Law in 1993. From there, Mitchell spent six years at law firms […]

David A. Hitchens – JLL

David A. Hitchens has been through industry downturns before, having joined the legal staff of JLL in the midst of the Great Recession. By revenue, the Chicago-based JLL is the world’s second largest commercial real estate company, and its properties endured higher vacancies and lower leases as so many industries cut back between 2007 and […]

David Bouchner – Aggreko

Language differences notwithstanding, David Bouchner may have been the most valuable player in the 2007 Cricket World Cup for his off-field role as general counsel and negotiator of Houston-based North American affiliate of the U.K.-based global temporary power company, Aggreko. His ability to swiftly negotiate a complex contract enabled the games to be played in […]

David Butow – Trane Technologies

It’s called a Reverse Morris Trust, which occurs when a company spins off a division in order to merge it with another organization, the benefits including the tax-free transfer of a business. If it sounds complicated, it is indeed, assures David Butow, who for the past year has led his legal team’s efforts in such […]

David Erich – Exeter Finance

The message was clear from the get-go. You’re as much businessperson as in-house lawyer, David Erich has told himself since joining Exeter Finance as senior vice president and deputy general counsel in May 2012. For almost 10 years, the affable Erich has juggled the business and legal roles, helping his tech-enabled employer that underwrites and […]

David Foster – National Basketball Players Association

When you’re prosecuting organized crime rings by your mid-30s, representing one of the most visible districts of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, it’s worth wondering how much higher the lawyer’s ceiling can get—let alone the daily adrenaline rush. Fearing his career might never split from its current track, David Foster did what any hungry young lawyer […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
