William Sawyers – Del Monte Foods Inc.

William Sawyers could go home again, although the place didn’t look quite the same. A lot can happen over the course of 13 years. For Sawyers had been an in-house lawyer at Del Monte Corp. between 1993 and 2001, ascending to the general counsel position at 33 and becoming a trusted business adviser as well […]

Word’s out about triple teaming in PR’s digital age

Three can indeed be company, even when the trio comprises companies that used to compete with one another in the high-stakes public relations world.  But they’re adding up to one integrated entity under Chicago-based PR heavyweight Cision, with much credit due the lawyer well-versed in hi-tech and the corporate legal world. Kristie Scott already had […]

Wylie Strout – Laserfiche

A generalist with a knack for adjusting to changes in the marketplace, Wylie Strout was putting both of those attributes into practice in early April, while taking time to chat with Vanguard. Her employer, the Long Beach, California-based Laserfiche, is noted for being ahead of the high-tech curve when it comes to providing the safe […]

Yasmine S. Murray – H.J. Russell & Company

Inspiration to pursue a legal career can come from the most unconventional means. For there was 8-year-old Yasmine S. Murray listening as adults bemoaned how reggae artists in their native St. Lucia were having their music pirated with no recourse. “That’s when I knew I was going to help people who were being taken advantage […]

Young Lee – MacKay Shields

The reasoning is simple enough: If one is the top in-house lawyer for Apple or Tesla, it would help to have some kind of engineering background. Thus if one is general counsel of an international financial firm, extensive aptitude in economics, quantitative analysis, financial reporting, equity and fixed income investments, alternative investments, derivatives, portfolio management, […]

Zachary Peterson – Evans Landscaping

On a September morning in 2014, Zachary Peterson came into his office at Evans Landscaping and nearly had a panic attack. A few weeks before, the company had purchased a pair of specialized excavators at auction for $1 million—a steal, given the competitive advantage the equipment would afford. There was just one problem: Because the […]

Zack Weber – Renovate America

For most corporate general counsels, simply having a voice in the legislative process, on a bill that fundamentally transforms your business model, would be a welcome opportunity—a chance to help create a more nuanced legal landscape. Zack Weber took a slightly different tack: He helped shape the language himself. Specifically: a 2017 law passed by […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
