Features Corporate Counsel

Brandon Mazer – Shipyard Brewing Co.

When the Matador Network, the social media gathering spot for tourists, crowned Portland, Maine, the world’s best city for craft beer in 2016—well ahead of such hoppy hot spots as Munich, Prague and Melbourne, Australia—the folks at Shipyard Brewing Co. had reason to raise a pint. Shipyard is, after all, the biggest craft brewer not […]

Young Lee – MacKay Shields

The reasoning is simple enough: If one is the top in-house lawyer for Apple or Tesla, it would help to have some kind of engineering background. Thus if one is general counsel of an international financial firm, extensive aptitude in economics, quantitative analysis, financial reporting, equity and fixed income investments, alternative investments, derivatives, portfolio management, […]

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 […]

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.
