Dan Dillon – Novel Energy Solutions

While some solar companies only serve one function, Dan Dillon says the one he works for is a little more, well, novel. Aptly named, Novel Energy Solutions develops land for solar infrastructure, constructs solar gardens and facilities, and oversees their operations by maintaining equipment and managing subscribers. Dillon, the company’s general counsel, says this vertical […]

Gail Richardson Job – Consolidated Edison Company of New York

There’s no price on reputation, and Consolidated Edison Company of New York Inc. will spend to defend its name. So emphasizes Gail Richardson Job, who’s soon to celebrate her 22nd anniversary as an assistant general counsel at the New York City-headquartered energy company commonly known as Con Edison. Litigation being her role, she leads a […]

Ricky Johnson – Silicon Ranch

Ricky Johnson knows sustainability requires long-term commitment and partnership. That’s why Silicon Ranch immerses in the local communities where it builds, owns and operates solar facilities, he says. Instead of building and leaving, the company stays for the life of the project, which can be up to 40 years. As general counsel, Johnson makes sure […]

Indra Maharaj

Indra Maharaj once jokingly told her mother that if she ever got a boat, she’d call it “The Winding Path.”  Indeed, her legal career has twisted and turned. Version 1.0 had Maharaj immersed in civil and commercial litigation in Winnipeg, Manitoba, with her eye on the partner track. Version 2.0 involved her moving to Alberta, handling […]

William Barker – Hi-Crush Inc.

There’s something about pressure in any pursuit that can shape a lawyer’s character. For the British-born William Barker and his twin brother, Richard, it was the years spent as doubles partners in collegiate and professional tennis. Quite the record those Barkers blazed, first at Rice University where they racked up 35 victories in 2003 before […]

Eric S. Eissenstat – Continental Resources

Though oil and natural gas companies had been mired in the Great Recession, along with so many other industries, an energy renaissance of sorts seemed to be dawning when Eric S. Eissenstat was approached by his friend and longtime client, Harold Hamm, in late 2010. A self-made billionaire and executive chairman and founder of Oklahoma […]

James Gallegos – Alliant Energy

It’s an ambitious goal shared by the state of Wisconsin and an investor-owned public utility: Generate only carbon-free electricity by 2050; gradually move from coal-fired power plants in favor of wind, solar and other renewable sources; and electrify public transit while giving residents plug-in points for electric vehicles. For all this to happen, a creative […]

Mauricio Riveros Habib – Trina Solar

Solar energy is a hot market in Latin America. But getting into that market as an attorney? Not so hot. Just ask Mauricio Riveros Habib, who’s hustled his way into a position with Trina Solar’s operations in Chile and Peru. As legal counsel, he says his healthy competitive edge—honed through athletics—has been an asset for […]

Nancy Washington – New Jersey Resources

Nancy Washington wasn’t your typical sixth-grade Jersey Girl. True, like most kids her age, she chattered incessantly—and minded everyone else’s business—leading her elementary school teacher to believe she’d likely become a lawyer one day. Unlike her peers, however, Washington avidly read the New York Post’s chess column to glean the latest moves, helping her become […]

Jack Garfinkle – PECO Energy

Sure, there are plenty of people who say Corbin Bernsen’s best role was playing Roger Dorn in the “Major League” trilogy. Or when he was Henry Spencer for 120 episodes of “Psych.” But for most people, Bernsen’s most recognizable and most acclaimed part was when he portrayed Arnie Becker for all eight seasons of the […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
