Donatella Catapano – Leonardo

When it comes to selling high-tech helicopters worldwide, it’s safe to say the pile of regulatory paperwork to meet requirements of multiple countries is—excuse the pun—sky high. Just ask Donatella, Leonardo Helicopters’ head of legal operations. She’ll tell you that every day the Italian multinational company specializing in aerospace, defense and security operations has 5,000 […]

Doug Balyeat – Pratt Industries Inc.

Asked to elaborate on what it means for a company to have an “entrepreneurial spirit”—a term he frequently uses to describe his current employer’s overall philosophy and approach—Doug Balyeat could’ve leaned on any number of tired clichés: thinking outside the box or dreaming the impossible. You know the lines. Instead, he takes a moment to […]

Doug Goldin – LSQ

The COVID-19 pandemic has put a financial strain on businesses and individuals as invoices have stalled and companies are left in the lurch. But for 25 years before the pandemic began, LSQ had been helping businesses receive payments—now it’s helping clients pay them, too. As the general counsel for the Orlando, Florida, working capital platform […]

Doug Sandberg – FirstView Financial

If you’ve watched even an hour of television in the last decade, you’re probably familiar with the formula for pharmaceutical ads: 10 seconds to tell you how great the drug is; another 40 to run through the side effects; and 10 more to say you might be eligible for subsidized coverage. According to Doug Sandberg, […]

Douglas Charton – GMO

Douglas Charton vividly remembers sitting in an internet café on the Greek island of Ios in the Summer of 2007, enjoying a much-deserved holiday following the bar exam. It was there he received an email notifying him he got a job in the Investment Management practice group of K&L Gates LLP, a prominent global law […]

Douglas Coleman – Aerion Supersonic

It was once the epitome of jet-setting, zipping passengers from Paris and London to New York and Washington D.C. and back in about half the time of a conventional commercial flight. Long and sleek, its wings fully molded to its body, and its thin nose section bowed as it landed, the Concorde broke sound barriers […]

Douglas Luftman – Nomis Solutions

He feels at home tackling some of the toughest challenges that the most innovative technology companies may confront daily. Whether it relates to negotiating multibillion-dollar commercial transactions, debt or equity financings, complex M&A or strategic partnerships, building legal teams, tackling intellectual property or privacy issues, or helping with sticky and complex business or legal issues, […]

Dr. Chika B. Onwuekwe, QC – Trican Well Service Ltd.

As a self-made attorney with a standard of living many only dreamed about—a house, a car, a rewarding career—Nigerian-born Chika Onwuekwe had all of the makings of a successful life in his home country. Why on earth would he want to leave it all, his wife Chinwe would ask. Wasn’t this good enough? The answer, […]

Dr. Mark Kokes – NantWorks

It’s not a topic familiar to most Americans, but for those working in the field of biologics, it’s a rule of engagement when filing a patent. Welcome to the world of the Budapest Treaty. As Dr. Mark Kokes, chief intellectual property officer at NantWorks, explains, U.S. patent laws practically require that biotech inventors deposit their […]

Driving change in workers’ compensation

“Get in the trunk,” Steve Sibner told his client after bailing him out of jail in the early morning hours of an especially memorable day back in 1986. It was one of the first pieces of legal advice that the young attorney gave to anyone, as he had only recently graduated from American University’s Washington […]

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.
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.
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.
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.
