Henry Marquard – Stanley Consultants Inc.

From putting out worksite fires—sometimes literally—to negotiating with foreign governments and serving on Iowa’s version of the EPA, even advising presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, Henry Marquard says his 26 years of in-house counsel work have opened doors few other positions could. The company he’s worked for that entire time, Stanley Consultants, also provides him ample […]

Heritage Health Solutions

Allen Walker doesn’t want to talk herself out of a job, but she does want contracts to be written so that you don’t have to be a lawyer to understand them. As executive vice president and general counsel for Heritage Health Solutions LP, Walker is leading by example with contracts that are more user-friendly. In […]

Hiliary Wilson ‒ Nevada Gold Mines

“In a cavern, in a canyon, excavating for a mine, lived a miner forty-niner and his daughter, Clementine.” Those lyrics are from the famed Western folk ballad, “My Darling, Clementine.” Like Clementine, Hiliary Wilson was introduced to gold mining by her father, who has worked as an underground miner for decades. Today, Wilson is the […]

His game is always on

To dust off hockey parlance oft-used when an open player taps in an easy goal, you could say Andrew Koehler was in the right place at the right time in 2014, when he found a position as a law clerk that would put him on the fast track to being counsel for the San Jose […]

Holmes Lilley – Chartwell Staffing Solutions

When Holmes Lilley became executive vice president and general counsel at Chartwell Staffing Solutions in 2016, after “the longest job interview of my life,” he inherited a department that was spending well into seven figures on legal expenses. Even for a $350 million company, Lilley knew such outlays were unsustainable. Through a combination of tech […]

Hooman Shahlavi – Sofinnova Investments

He’s a dealmaker, a person with a big-picture vantage and always looking for ways to grow the firm and its investments. Chief legal officer at Sofinnova Investments since January 2020 and the company’s sole in-house lawyer for almost 14 years, Hooman Shahlavi relishes the role that allows him to do so much more than he […]

Hoyt Webb – Legrand North America LLC

To say that Hoyt Webb has international experience would be something of an understatement. His role as vice president and general counsel for Legrand North America, a global provider of products and systems for electrical installations and information networks, requires a good deal of travel, including to the parent company, Legrand S.A., in Limoges, France. […]

Huawei – Fernando Barrera B.

As a law student, Fernando Barrera was focused, driven and dedicated. But he was, and still is, a man of few words, so he had his doubts about pursuing the legal profession. “I did not see myself as the kind of person who was always arguing,” he says. Then, one day, a professor’s words helped […]

Hugh Spires Jr. – United Allergy Services

For some people, the allergies themselves aren’t so much the issue—it’s the treatment. It can be time consuming to go to a weekly allergy appointment. And for a few people, it’s the needles. But no need to pencil out a block of your afternoon—or cringe, sniffle or full-out cry. At least, that’s the goal of […]

Hugo Teufel III – Raytheon

As if helping the company navigate the challenges of social distancing and a freefalling economy weren’t enough, Hugo Teufel III has addressed privacy issues associated with one of the largest mergers in American history: that of the Raytheon Company and United Technologies Corporation. Completed in April, the $135 billion deal created the world’s second-largest aerospace […]

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.
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.
