Est. reading time: 5 mins

Though an advocate of a healthy work-play ratio, J. Anthony “Tony” Ogden sometimes isn’t positioned to separate the two. There he and his husband were, enjoying the wonders of Costa Rica in February 2020 when initially sketchy reports of a pandemic filtered into the news. Sensing reason for concern, he kept pace with the developments […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

While she doesn’t claim to be psychic, Eve Bolkin says she can see global trends well in advance.

Even in the white sands and sagebrush of New Mexico, there are times when the coal fields of southwestern Pennsylvania remain vividly in mind for Barry Shulock.

Mary Clare – Milliman

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The world has never been more awash in data and so reliant on artificial intelligence to improve day-to-day life than in 2020. With COVID-19 rapidly pushing commerce online (Black Friday in-store sales down 52 percent), ever more data is being mined from consumers—a trend that continues to accelerate as businesses begin to use that data, […]

Testimonials

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.
