Est. reading time: 4 mins

While some solar companies only serve one function, Dan Dillon says the one he works for is a little more, well, novel. Aptly named, Novel Energy Solutions develops land for solar infrastructure, constructs solar gardens and facilities, and oversees their operations by maintaining equipment and managing subscribers. Dillon, the company’s general counsel, says this vertical […]

Diane Hornquist – Hunt Realty Investments, Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The age-old adage advises us—businesses or individuals—to consider three important aspects of real estate before investing: location, location and location. However, as Diane Hornquist can attest, location is one piece of the complex real estate investment puzzle. Aspects such as cost and contracts, as well as wildcards—like, say, a global pandemic—all need to be considered. […]

At the time, more than a decade before the arrival of COVID-19 forced remote work on businesses, it was a novel idea. The Virtual Law Office, begun in 2010, was an entirely remote business. As its founder and sole proprietor, Dante Bradley, explains, it was a small firm that offered typical legal services, but it […]

Darren Moore – Appriss

Est. reading time: 4 mins

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.

Darryl Lewis – Universal Insurance Holdings Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

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 […]

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.
