Features Corporate Counsel

Scott Boylan – MorphoTrust USA

The nation still reeling from the Sept. 11 attacks of the year before, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security came into being in late 2002, and among the early advisers to Secretary Tom Ridge was a lawyer in his early 40s who had built up credentials as impressive as they were esoteric. Scott Boylan was […]

Sean Hughes — Tabcorp

In Australia, the first Tuesday of every November is the Melbourne Cup, the most prestigious thoroughbred horse race in the country and a nationwide tradition since 1861. In 2017, it was also the day that Vanguard spoke with attorney Sean Hughes of Tabcorp, a major sponsor of the Melbourne Cup carnival and one of the […]

Surveying and Mapping LLC

Modern construction relies more and more upon geospatial surveying, and that’s a concept best grasped by those with a technical background. People such as, say, Cookie Fay Munson, who since 2012 has been the savvy general counsel of the Austin, Texas-based and nationally recognized firm, Surveying And Mapping LLC (SAM) that assists a variety of […]

Sbarro

The owner of a casual, family-style Italian restaurant in North Canton, Ohio, Mark Inzetta knows the recipe for success in the risky endeavor of serving food to customers and hoping they’ll make a habit out of coming back often. His restaurant—Mama Guzzardi’s—is noted for its mouth-watering lasagna, but that alone won’t keep the place viable. […]

Sabine Oil & Gas Corporation

The oil and gas business is risky. Very risky. There’s geological and mechanical risk associated with locating and extracting hydrocarbons from thousands of feet below the Earth’s surface. And then there’s price risk. Global economies, OPEC decisions, geopolitical events—particularly those in already unstable areas like the Middle East—and even the weather, can all dramatically impact […]

Seeing clearly in vertical markets

Some insights can only come from weathering 17 years in the legal hot seat. That, says Suzanne Niemeyer, just about sums up her role as general counsel and managing director at Actua Corporation, a Radnor, Pennsylvania-based public company that owns and operates private businesses offering cloud-based software to customers in vertical markets, or markets that […]

Sonny Cave – ON Semiconductor Corporation

Nothing moves faster than technology, but geopolitics is picking up speed. In today’s world, a tweet by President Trump can cause a company’s stock to jump or plummet. A trade agreement can change everything. An executive order can leave employees stranded. Global companies, then, would be wise to do as Sonny Cave has done. Cave […]

Shan Bhati and Peter Petros – Edelman

“At this point, we can read each other’s minds,” says attorney Shan Bhati of her co-counsel Peter Petros. The two attorneys may not have super powers, but after 11 years of working together to build the legal department of the world’s largest public relations firm, Bhati and Petros have formed a partnership that’s unique in […]

Steve Gaer – R&R Realty Group

Steve Gaer keeps his general counsel card in his back pocket, literally. Most of the time, when he goes into business meetings with R&R Realty Group, he passes out his chief operative officer (COO) business card. Gaer joined R&R Realty Group—a 30-year-old family-owned full service commercial real estate company based in West Des Moines, Iowa—in […]

Shelly Cooper – IAP Worldwide Services Inc.

IAP Worldwide Services Inc. (IAP) is a global leader in government services and national security, expeditionary infrastructure, power solutions, aviation and engineering, information technology (IT), communications and more. From airfields to hospitals, border crossings to remote camps, the multinational corporation works to provide global-scale support to the civilian and defense agencies that help the U.S. […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
