Andrea Halverson Harper – Pepco Holdings

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Her recent reunion at the University of Virginia School of Law was a joyous occasion with midcareer attorneys basking in the Southern charm of Charlottesville. The all-nighters, the moot courts, the paper chases of decades ago, the brushing up on Latin—it all seemed worth it. Maybe even more so for Andrea Halverson Harper, a proud […]

Hanna Chouest – Norfolk Southern Corp.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Hanna Chouest wasn’t drawn to her career by the far-off sound of a locomotive whistle. Her interest in practicing law in the transportation industry was instead piqued by her father, who made his career in the practice area. Though he focused more on aviation, Chouest says his travel and the legal issues and regulations surrounding […]

Bhavin Patel – Compass Group USA

Est. reading time: 5 mins

There’s no real highs or lows on his watch. Just an overall steadiness that Bhavin Patel helps enable at Compass Group USA where, come August, he’ll celebrate his 15th anniversary as assistant general counsel. But, as he told Vanguard in May, the past couple years have taken some doing to sustain business as usual at […]

Marc Treitler – Conservice

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Sustainability is everyone’s concern—or at least it should be. So emphasizes Marc Treitler who’s done much to make it so in California where a tenant can pay extra for letting water run. Five years ago, he helped draft legislation mandating water meters and submeters in all rental housing built after Jan. 1, 2018. According to […]

Winnie Lee – Cetera Financial Group

Est. reading time: 5 mins

She arrived just a little late to weigh in on the actual transaction, Cetera Financial Group having purchased the independent financial planning channel of Voya Financial Advisors when Winnie Lee became deputy general counsel in June 2021. But there was integration for her to oversee and ways to streamline for subsequent acquisitions, this being how […]

Daniel Belhumeur – Tellurian Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Not many general counsels commence with a company at the outset. Fewer still may experience the wild ride that Daniel Belhumeur has experienced since he joined a 2016 exodus from a Houston energy heavyweight to a scrappy startup. “That’s why I came here,” Belhumeur tells Vanguard in May from Tellurian Inc.’s headquarters. “I wanted to […]

Jason Yoo – Affirm Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Your tires are so worn they won’t make it through another winter. Your summer wardrobe is threadbare and you know the kids will need new clothes for school. Despite that, maybe you want to score tickets for a concert or the big game. Yet ordinary purchases like these may be out of reach if, like […]

Wendy Ellis – DT Midstream

Est. reading time: 4 mins

After nearly three decades of practicing energy law at firms and in-house, Wendy Ellis might have thought she had seen it all in this segment. Well, almost. Last summer her long-time employer, DTE Energy, spun off its natural gas pipeline, storage and gathering division into a separate publicly traded company. So, who better provide legal […]

Tom Griffin – Ares Management Corp.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Every day can be rewarding for Tom Griffin when he’s out and about New York City or the rest of the United States. He’ll pass an independent auto parts retailer and see the parking lot teeming with customers. Or maybe it’ll be a software startup that’s about to introduce the latest app. Or a franchisee-owned […]

Ryan Bardo – T.F. Warren Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

While there are differences between military and corporate leadership, Ryan Bardo recognizes enough common denominators. As the new general counsel at T.F. Warren Group, he won’t be barking out orders as the Houston-based company looks to expand its storage tank construction operations in the United States and Latin America. But Bardo will apply what he […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
