Veronica Torres – Comscore

Veronica Torres has always wanted to be a lawyer who helps people, but it didn’t happen how she thought it would. When she was in law school, she worked in immigration law and with survivors of domestic violence, and while both areas were rewarding, she knew neither was the right fit. Nonetheless, the experiences confirmed […]

David Liebman – Frank Recruitment Group

If it’s 7 a.m., the call must be from Berlin. Or maybe Amsterdam or Barcelona. That’s the way the day flows for David Liebman, the chief legal officer and head of administration for Frank Recruitment Group as it expands all over the world. In fact, the push for IT personnel, especially to staff cloud technologies […]

Gregory Smith – Alliance Industries

Despite the uncertainty in business across almost all industries due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Gregory Smith saw an opportunity. As vice president and general counsel of Alliance Industries in Ohio, Smith was hired to lead the company’s global expansion. Though he spent more than a decade working with fast growing companies in China, Hong Kong, […]

Kamau Coar – Heidrick & Struggles

A pivotal year 2020 was indeed. One marked by, among other happenings, so many companies playing catch-up on the diversity and inclusion fronts. It’s long overdue, Kamau Coar observes from his office at Heidrick & Struggles in downtown Chicago. But as this general counsel and corporate secretary for a global executive search and leadership advisory […]

Christy O’Connor – Ibex

A winning team on the verge of stepping into the big leagues. That’s what Christy O’Connor was promised when her reputation in the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry garnered an offer to take over the legal department at Ibex. At the time, the Washington D.C.-based company was focused on going public, and O’Connor had aided […]

Malik Majeed — PRWT Services Inc. and U.S. Facilities Inc.

One of the things Malik Majeed loves hearing from employees, both past and present, is that PRWT Services Inc. “feels like family.” For Majeed, the president, CEO and general counsel for two Philadelphia-based companies—PRWT Services Inc. (PRWT) and its wholly owned subsidiary, U.S. Facilities Inc. (USF)—it’s a sentiment that’s both heartwarming and validating. One of […]

Hannah Lim-Johnson – Kelly Services

Once upon a time, the “Kelly Girl” was a ubiquitous image—a woman filling in for a day or a week in a company typing pool or another clerical job. The better part of a century later, Kelly Services has evolved to be a go-to resource for labor in a wide array of industries with assignments […]

Paul Marcela – Governance Partners Group LLC

To some, the work of a corporate secretary is drudgery, but there’s a certain romance to it for the right person. “The role is broader than taking minutes, with a variety of board activities, governance processes and procedures, authorization of transactions and delegations of authority—there are plenty of balls to keep in the air,” Paul […]

Kevin Rakowski – Radian Group Inc.

It might seem like a long shot—or perhaps a long “line” would be more appropriate—but correlations can be made between the legal aspects of insurance, real estate services and fly-fishing. That’s according to Kevin Rakowski, who has been deeply involved in both the sport and the industries for some time. As he has learned, they […]

Jason Romrell – LeadsMarket.com

It’s a disturbing fact of economic life that approximately 40 percent of adults can’t cover a $400 emergency without selling property or taking out a loan, 30 percent have poor or bad credit, and millions more are credit invisible, making it difficult to secure financing. Not impossible, that is. Subprime lenders abound, especially online, willing […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
