Agenor Correa — Panama Canal Authority

For nearly ten years, government officials, construction companies and laborers worked to expand and improve the Panama Canal by making even more passable the 48 miles of manmade lakes, locks and infrastructure essential to the international transport of goods between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The major improvements included the addition of a third set […]

Andy Iverson – American Bath Group LLC

There are some things in life everyone needs. A bathroom, for example. Moving from the construction and energy industries to a once family-owned now multibillion-dollar business, Andy Iverson says he was a perfect match to serve as general counsel for American Bath Group, a fast-paced manufacturing company looking to change the bathware industry. “I get […]

Benoit Mallette – Pomerleau

It began, as so many success stories do, in a schoolhouse. The primary school in the town of Saint-Bernard, Quebec, was a one-story affair that was quickly becoming too small to serve the community. The contract to expand with a new two-floor wing went to Pomerleau, a fledgling construction company founded in 1964 in nearby […]

Betsy L. McCoy – The Related Group

Betsy L. McCoy is thrilled her employer is feeling as at home in the Tampa Bay area as she does. For prior to becoming general counsel and vice president for The Related Group, Florida’s most recognized development company, McCoy was a long-time principal and shareholder in a Tampa law firm.

Bonnie Huber Porzio – Triumph Construction Corp.

She was just eight years old, but Bonnie Huber Porzio’s first trip to a courtroom in Nassau County, New York, with her grandfather was unforgettable—from being invited “backstage” into the chambers of their family friend who was a judge, to getting to sit on the bench and hold a gavel. There and then she knew […]

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 […]

Chi Lam – Guardiar

Cut your legal teeth at a law firm before going in-house. Prove you can rack up those 2,000 billable hours annually and comfortably juggle cases to the satisfaction of a diverse clientele. So young lawyers are advised. While Chi Lam won’t disagree with the need for new attorneys to secure a strong foundation, he learned […]

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, […]

Dan Schwarzenbach – Sunland Construction

While squishing through the oozing mud, the marsh buggy trundles slowly through the murky shallow waters. This excavator on two pontoons needs to touch the ground in order to operate. Then the excavator’s bucket reaches out and disappears down into the brown water with a loud dunk. It scoops up the muck under the marsh, […]

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 […]

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.
