Features Corporate Counsel

Christopher Juban – Caiman Energy II LLC

Outside of New York City, Houston has more Fortune 500 headquarters than any other U.S. municipality, and so many of them are in the oil and gas industry that the city is known worldwide for its energy businesses. When you grow up in Houston, Texas, then, it’s hard not to have some connection to oil […]

Always gassed and ready to go

Houston was the proverbial tale of two cities in early September when Kevin Feeney, chief legal officer and senior vice president to one of the region’s major corporations, found time for an interview with Vanguard. “Parts of this city are still underwater but our main office is fine,” said Feeney, who runs the Americas side […]

Juliana Cobb – Nana Development Corp.

The way Juliana Cobb looks at it, she was given the benefit of a few months’ head start when her longtime employer, NANA Development Corp., informed in June that it would no longer need her services as senior corporate counsel. Having been in-house counsel for what has been known as WHPacific, Inc. since 1998 and […]

Match Group

Few people may realize it, but the dating websites Match.com, OkCupid, Tinder and PlentyOfFish are all owned by the same parent company, Match Group. In all, Match Group owns some 45 online dating brands, each catering to a slightly different market. “They all focus on something unique, even though they’re in the same space,” says […]

The Donohoe Companies Inc.

How does a two-person legal team support one of the Washington D.C. area’s largest and oldest real estate development firms? It knows when to ask for help and isn’t afraid to outsource work to other law firms. While many in-house counsel justify their positions by bringing legal work in-house, thus reducing their outside counsel expenditures, […]

American Council of Engineering Companies

Design professionals applauded a ruling earlier this year, by the Maryland Court of Appeals, upholding a lower court ruling protecting a company against claims for purely economic damages by a contractor with whom it did not have a contractual agreement. This principle, known as the Economic Loss Rule or the Economic Loss Doctrine, was championed […]

Roberto Paes

Contrary to what corporate America says, sabbaticals aren’t just another way for millennials to scheme and snowflake their way into being lazy or getting more vacation time. Attorneys especially, may be steered away from time off. There are plenty of lawyers out there, the logic goes. Plenty of executives, too. Pulling less than 60 hours […]

ABB

A loving, supportive, stable household; good schooling; a future that doesn’t have to include poverty or the pervasive pattern of crime and corruption. Luis Radulov acknowledges that his family is different: While these things might be taken for granted in much of North America, they aren’t the norm for so many children in Brazil, a […]

Lisa Hatton Harrington—ASICS America Corporation

Getting a leg up in the athletic footwear and apparel business isn’t easy. Name brands spare no expense sponsoring sports events and enlisting the most recognizable athletes as endorsers. Woe to any player under contract who’s wearing the wrong shoes or apparel on or off the court, field or track. Such companies play for keeps. […]

Career moves down to a science

Compared to what his father did decades ago, Bradford J. Shafer’s career change in the prime of his working life may not seem quite so remarkable. But it still represented a leap of faith that’s vindicated itself in the form of Shafer helming the legal department of a growing biopharmaceutical company in South San Francisco. […]

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.
