Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s an ambitious growth agenda his employer pursues, but Adam Bennett can put aside the legal jargon and describe in simple terms what it all comes down to. “To make a really great sandwich, we must start at home,” he explains. And the ingredients aren’t just the breads, meats, cheeses and whatnots that go into […]

There’s nothing like total immersion to get one acclimated to a new role. So says Alyssa (Kaplun) Flores about her first day as a member of the Ziff Davis legal department in July 2018. “I opened my inbox to find due diligence materials for the acquisitions of Ekahau and Downdetector,” she recalls. “Since then, I […]

Anne Sherwood – Xcel Energy

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The Rocky Mountain State’s high on a carbon-free future. In 2019 Colorado’s lawmakers mandated that by 2030, utilities reduce emissions by 80 percent compared to 2005 levels. Eighty percent of electricity must then come from such clean energies as wind, solar and batteries with Old King Coal dethroned as the primary power source. For Xcel […]

Aaron Mandel started his studies at Penn State University expecting to become a meteorologist, but fate—and the difficulties of fluid dynamics—intervened to steer him toward a different career. One semester, he took a class titled “Philosophy of Law” and was fascinated with the coursework. Students had to prepare a research memo on a given issue, […]

Amy Eldridge – Cadence Bank

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Amy Eldridge knows how difficult it can be for young lawyers to forge a career path.

Sometimes, the road less traveled has the most interesting scenery. Such was certainly the experience of Angela Frazier.

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 […]

Adel Sander – Ascend Performance Materials

Est. reading time: 4 mins

At the height of the pandemic in 2020, N95 masks—recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for protection against COVID-19—were rapidly selling out and vaccines were frustratingly far on the horizon. Making matters worse, counterfeit personal protection equipment was flooding the market as demand far outpaced supply. According to Adel Sander, Ascend […]

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.
