Katherine Tew Darras – ISDA

Brexit, the 2020 election, the death of a statesperson, a natural disaster—just a few of the many events that can affect the derivatives market. For at stake are contracts that derive their performance from those of an underlying asset, such as an equity, an index or interest rate. And that makes it all the more […]

Kathryn Holt Richardson – HR Legal Search

Could be mom tampered with that fortune cookie. Not that she’d ever so admit. But if she did, her daughter just might give her the biggest of hugs. For as Kathy Richardson explains, her initial inclination was to be a career counselor, something she was finding time to do even while majoring in international affairs […]

Kathryn Rookes – Atticus Franchise Group

Efficiency’s at a premium when one person comprises the legal department of a company that owns or operates three very different types of franchises. Case in point: The Atlanta-based Atticus Franchise Group that at last count had interests in 121 locations of Massage Envy, Maaco and Wingstop franchises. It’s anticipating the addition of around 80 […]

Kathryn Stalmack – BioScrip

By 2015, Kathryn Stalmack had reached a comfortable place in her career. She had made partner at a prominent healthcare practice in Chicago, Polsinelli PC, earning the firm’s trust and building her own client base. “I loved my job and I was working for one of the best healthcare firms in the country,” she says. […]

Kathryn Williams – Siddons Martin Emergency Group LLC

No one ambles into a showroom to casually buy a firetruck or ambulance. No one takes it out for a test spin and then sits down at a desk with a sales rep to pencil out a deal, talk about a trade-in and set up the financing.  But there still needs to be a bridge between municipalities and agencies needing firetrucks and rescue units and the companies making […]

Katie Helton – Jack Cooper Investments

It’s a tradition nearly a century old. New vehicles roll off an assembly line with a sparkle and a new car smell, and Jack Cooper’s team hauls them to dealers or drop lots before they end up in someone’s driveway. Founded in 1928 to haul General Motors vehicles from an assembly plant in the Leeds […]

Katie Jamieson – Herschel Supply Co.

Imagine you’ve just settled into your seat. The flight attendants finish their safety briefing as the jumbo jet pushes back from the gate. You take out some headphones and an iPad or a magazine and prepare for the 3,000-mile cross-country journey. Then you hear those dreaded words from the person sitting next to you: “So, […]

Katie Norton – ASRC Federal Holding Company

It’s a career path that runs from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center to above the Arctic Circle—with a cameo on the “Jimmy Fallon Show” thrown in for good measure—but Katie Norton says it’s not hard to follow. “There’s a lot about my story that’s nontraditional in the legal industry,” she says. “I wasn’t a person […]

Kazuko An Wachter – Prism Financial Products

She would’ve rather not been quarantined, but Kazuko An Wachter has been putting the time to good use while holed up in her Manhattan home. Chief legal and strategy officer since last October at Prism Financial Products, orPrismFP, Wachter is in a distinctly unique role which was created for her at the much-vaunted securities brokerage […]

Keary Dunn – Celularity

Keary Dunn recognized early on the opportunities and implications of immunotherapy and cellular therapy. As new BS graduate and young neuropharmacology lab technician at Georgetown University, he undertook cutting edge science research. Specifically, he studied the effects of cocaine and heroin on the immune system, testing the theory—on mice—that such narcotics suppressed the body’s greatest […]

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.
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.
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.
