Est. reading time: 3 mins

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 […]

Matthew McFarlane – Python Holdings

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s a good thing Matthew McFarlane hates stagnation, because things at Python Holdings are anything but in this thrill ride known as 2020. As its first general counsel, McFarlane arrived at Python just weeks ahead of COVID-19. The transactional, HR and M&A tasks he expected to handle were shifted to a back burner as the […]

Madelon Kuchera – Earth Etch

Est. reading time: 6 mins

A first-responder analogy seems appropriate for Madelon Kuchera who has built a professional life going where there’s the most disorder. That’s meant a lot of running toward, and making sense of, regulatory chaos confronting big-ticket industries. “Always go where there’s chaos in industry,” the good-natured Kuchera says with a laugh during a lively interview with […]

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.
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.
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.
