Kari Valley – MISO

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s an obscure entity where Kari Valley has been earning her livelihood for over eight years. Most people dependent on the Midcontinent Independent System Operator never give it a second thought, at least if their electricity is functioning.   Which Valley is proud to say is almost always. But nothing can be taken for granted by […]

Kati Brady – Radiology Partners

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Kati Brady isn’t selling herself short when she refers to herself and her colleagues in corporate labor and employment law as glorified human resources personnel. On the contrary, she’s emphasizing just how essential the human element is in advancing an enterprise. “One of the most important things for a labor and employment attorney to do […]

Kimberley Honeysett – Varex Imaging

Est. reading time: 5 mins

One has to understand what’s beneath the surface. So emphasizes Kimberley Honeysett, chief legal officer and general counsel of Varex Imaging, a company that specializes in doing just that as the B2B manufacturer of components for medical, industrial and security uses. And Honeysett knows her employer well, having been among the leadership responsible for its […]

Kami L. Holmes – Grinnell Mutual

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s far from a pleasant memory, but as Kami L. Holmes acknowledges, much about litigation is not pleasant. The parents across the table had just lost a young son, and this would be Holmes’ first mediation involving a fatality as a member of the Grinnell Mutual legal team. The grief-stricken parents displayed photos of him […]

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.
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.
