Bass Wallace – TETRA Technologies Inc. and CSI Compressco LP

While Bass Wallace enjoys a respite from a quarter-century tending to complex in-house law at a couple of Texas-based energy services companies with international operations, he reckons he’ll remain active in the industry. He’s got experience in spades to leverage from TETRA Technologies Inc., the Woodlands company from which he recently retired as senior vice […]

Bryan Pechersky – Cloud Peak Energy Inc.

While it’s common for a general counsel to wear legal and business hats, there’s another that Bryan Pechersky sports as he goes about his responsibilities for one of the biggest coal mining companies in the Powder River Basin region of Wyoming and Montana. It’s the hat for government affairs, a matter weighing heavy on the […]

Carlo Cotrone – Baker Hughes

With 19 years’ combined experience in private and corporate law practice, Carlo Cotrone is no stranger to legal, technological and business complexity. An intellectual property counselor, strategist and manager, he relishes collaborating with clients, colleagues and external parties to navigate challenging issues. “I always strive to see the bigger picture,” Cotrone tells Vanguard in July. […]

Carolyn Shellman – CPS Energy

Back in March, while attending the 2019 DFW Auto Show in Dallas, Carolyn Shellman kept noticing clusters of onlookers gathered around a few specific cars. Each time she wove her way through the crowd to see what all the fuss was about, the object of attention was the same. Not a souped-up Ferrari or the […]

Colin Owyang – VELCO

One of the beautiful things about working close to Killington is being able to hike up a beautiful mountain on a fresh winter morning, snowboard down the slopes at dawn and still get to work on time. That peace and tranquility weaves itself into the fabric of Colin Owyang’s life as general counsel at the […]

Dick Garlish – Peak Reliability

He’ll likely be the man who essentially turns out the lights when the energy company that’s employed him since April 2017 goes dark for good. His job is due to be extinguished in the process, making this one of the least pleasant tasks that Dick Garlish has had to execute as an in-house lawyer at […]

Duncan MacKay – Eversource Energy

Thirty years ago, if a power line owned by a utility fell on someone’s house or if a dispute arose with a supplier of critical energy equipment or services, it would’ve tied up the company’s legal team in phone calls, meetings, negotiations and litigation over a number of years. Countless outside attorneys would’ve been brought […]

Elisa Lambertini – GE Power Conversion

A growing commitment to electrical efficiency and low-emission technologies. Revolutionizing trains, power plants and ocean liners by swapping out carbon fossil motors for electric ones. Customized solutions that are sophisticated and highly automated. GE Power Conversion finds itself in the midst of a paradigm shift in how the world views energy consumption, serving as an […]

Iván Diego Durontó — AES Argentina

Everyone loves a good story about making an impossible situation possible—but no one more so than Iván Diego Durontó of AES Argentina. With only a month to complete a monstrous financial task—the likes of which the Buenos Aires-based energy company had never before completed—Durontó and his team actively collaborated with an AES Argentina multidisciplinary team […]

James “Jamie” Wallace – Montauk Energy

It’s abundant, whether captured from decomposing garbage or cows. Harvesting biogas, which is converted into renewable natural gas, or RNG, provides an ever-growing source of energy for electricity and transportation, and it has provided a bounty of legal learning for James “Jamie” Wallace. “In capturing the methane, which is a primary component of biogas, we’re […]

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.
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.
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.
