Features Construction

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 […]

Rachel Clancy – Lobar Inc.

As spring comes to northwestern Pennsylvania, a walk in the woods at Sinnemahoning State Park in Cameron County is an invigorating way to celebrate the change of seasons. Then, visitors can pop into the Wildlife Center to learn more about the eagles, bears and elk inhabiting the park. As one of many public sector construction […]

Hector Izzo – Grupo GP

Though he’s only been in the office a few months, Hector Izzo says he has a good understanding of the business and how the legal department can advance the company’s interests. Since joining Grupo GP as general counsel, Izzo has helped close seven large business transactions in a number of industries, including real estate, commercial […]

Peter Williams – VEIT

Peter Williams hasn’t built an entire legal department just once or twice. Last spring, he took on the task for the third time. As the general counsel and secretary at VEIT, he created the company’s first legal department in its 93-year history. Williams joined the company as part of its new leadership team and has […]

Daniel Lorenzini – Sandvik

Merely mentioning mining in some circles can conjure up collapsed tunnels and black lung disease, ever-present dangers in one of the world’s toughest occupations of hauling raw materials from the ground. But travel to Finland and hop in the cabin of the latest technological mining equipment with a coffee and you may be relaxing or […]

Miek Harbur – The New Home Co.

Larry Webb took a gamble when he hired the first in-house counsel for New Home Co., but then he’d already started a residential construction company in 2009 at the height of the Great Recession and that was paying off. So, in 2015, on the advice of Chief Financial Officer John Stephens, hired after New Home […]

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.
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.
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.
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.
