Marc Trigilio – Syngenta

Picture a man standing in a field on a research farm in Naples, Florida. He’s just finished tasting a seventh variety of watermelon picked right from the vine. A short time later, he’s in Wisconsin, sinking his teeth into sweet corn that he plucked from the stalk and husked. Now, guess his job. Marc Trigilio […]

Todd Blair – CoreSite

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When the general counsel of CoreSite suggested the company publish an environmental, social and governance report in 2018, most of the team had never worked on one before. According to Todd Blair, an assistant general counsel, the general counsel had heard from law firms that the reports would soon be commonplace. So, working with leaders […]

Suzan Levin – Pfizer

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Talk to a lot of lawyers and they’ll tell you they became interested in the law because of a parent or close family member who was an attorney. Or they enjoyed watching LA Law or Law & Order on TV. Or they were on the debate team in high school and fancied a career as […]

Albert Nicholson – loanDepot

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Albert Nicholson never aspired to be an attorney, let alone practice law while earning his bachelor’s degree in mass and organizational communications studies from the University of California, Los Angeles. However, when he took a required course in the legal process, his interest in law was piqued. Then, when he was exposed to labor and […]

Andrew T. Park – United Airlines

He’ll acknowledge some reservations about relocating his family from balmy Fort Lauderdale to frigid Chicago in February 2021, but the reasons for Andrew T. Park doing so couldn’t be passed up. “I love learning, and the challenges that naturally arise from working for an airline present so many opportunities to learn,” he tells Vanguard one […]

J. Scott Melton – Denny’s Corp.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s a well-deserved retirement for J. Scott Melton, who in December wound down nearly 27 years of counseling with what’s now Denny’s Corporation. Though he reduced his work week to around 30 hours and moved back to his native Arkansas with his wife in 2019, he still helped transition the legal team for a new […]

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.
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.
