Features Construction

Ryan Brooks – Construction Partners Inc.

Passing through a road construction site can sometimes be painstaking, noisy and frustrating—and in the Southeast, where Construction Partners Inc. operates in five states, it can go on year-round. Ryan Brooks knows CPI may not be the favorite company of anyone stuck in traffic—especially now that work is sure to increase with the recent passage […]

Catherine Bragg – TRC Companies

While many private practice attorneys manage many clients at once, Catherine Bragg has always preferred a more monogamous approach. As an in-house lawyer, Bragg likes focusing on a single client, with an eye on truly understanding the business and adding value—and she has the resume to prove it. Since graduating from law school almost two […]

Mariangela Bartz – Votorantim Cimentos Brasil

Brazilian legal operations can be a challenging for attorneys, says Mariangela Bartz. Fast-changing business conditions, complex regulations and taxes, and a high number of lawsuits—especially related to labor disputes—can come on suddenly, like a tropical downpour. Given than context, Bartz wasn’t surprised to find a heavy caseload of lawsuits awaiting her on her first day […]

Philip Petti – USG Corp.

He’ll leave it to others to make the lightweight wallboard and other USG Corp. products for many of the world’s 10 tallest buildings, starting with the 2,717-foot Burj Khalifa in the United Arab Emirates and ending with the 1,667-foot Taipei 101 in Taiwan. Instead, Philip Petti will keep busy making, defending and leveraging his employer’s […]

Joy (Bily) Bender – The Dutra Group

The $20 million contract awarded this past spring for The Dutra Group to dredge a channel in the Columbia River shows the depth of the company’s capabilities. Joy (Bily) Bender digs nearly as deep. General counsel of operations for the past three years and a member of Dutra’s legal team since 2012, she oversaw the […]

Christian Young – DeAngelis Diamond Construction LLC

Construction has begun for an 82-bed facility to be run by the Sarasota Memorial Health Care System on Florida’s Gulf Coast. The 95,000-square-foot facility will replace a smaller, 1960s-era building that’s seen better days. It’s one of many projects Naples-based DeAngelis Diamond Construction LLC oversees in the Sunshine State and other locales. Throughout the Southeast, […]

Regina McGregor – Cannistraro

In 1963, John Cannistraro had $1,500 in his pocket and his wife Rita’s support. He needed both to open a small plumbing shop in Boston, Massachusetts. More than a half a century later, his family-owned business has become one of the state’s largest providers of industrial mechanical construction solutions, from plumbing and construction to 3D […]

Travis Boghetich – Centurion American Development Group

The Collin Creek Mall had seen better days, though its demise in 2019 was hardly unique. Across the United States and Canada, once-thriving shopping centers gasp for economic breath as anchor tenants plunge into Chapter 11 and online shoppers bypass brick and mortar. So, deep in the heart of Plano, Texas, the once hustling and […]

Jeffery DeArman – Ram Tool Construction Supply Co.

In baseball, a five-tool player is someone who rates above the norm in speed, throwing, fielding, hitting for average and hitting for power. It’s a term reserved for the greats of the game, like Mike Trout and Mookie Betts, or Barry Bands and Willie Mays. Jeffery DeArman may not be a big baseball fan, but […]

Don Goebel – Maxim Crane Works LP

This was no ordinary request for help with heavy lifting. In September 2012, Maxim Crane Works was called by United Space Alliance, a NASA contractor. The Space Shuttle Endeavour was scheduled to arrive at LAX Airport, and United Space Alliance needed it lifted from the jumbo jet carrying it and placed on a trailer for […]

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.
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.
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.
