Jeremy Osborne – Pegasus Optimization Managers LLC

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Got to hang on to that startup mentality, though the company seems to be anything but a newcomer in the very specialized business of contract compression. So muses Jeremy Osborne about Pegasus Optimization Managers, LLC, which he and former President/CEO Randy Dean co-founded just over four years ago in College Station, Texas. Success mustn’t go […]

Dick Garlish – Peak Reliability

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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 […]

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. […]

Colin Owyang – VELCO

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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 […]

Mario Ayala Claros – Energia del Pacifico

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It is a massive undertaking costing nearly a billion dollars, involving hundreds of public and private stakeholders, and requiring years of intense negotiating, designing and building, as well as every imaginable type of assessment and study. And once it’s completed? The new natural gas power plant will serve as one of the largest single investments […]

Carolyn Shellman – CPS Energy

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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 […]

Joe Limone – Noble Americas

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Lawyers have their oft-pure stories about how they discovered the legal field: devouring the works of Oliver Wendell Holmes during summer vacation, perhaps, or writing an essay on the humble heroism of Atticus Finch. Joe Limone’s story is far grittier, and involves a Massachusetts subway and a cigarette. During one of his hundreds of hour-long […]

Bryan Pechersky – Cloud Peak Energy Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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 […]

Paul D. Tanaka – Kirkland & Ellis

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When Paul D. Tanaka interviewed for a position in 2006, with the global heavyweight firm of Kirkland & Ellis, he seemed to have all the credentials to acquit himself in the increasingly complicated area of environmental law. Though just 31, the University of Hawaii law grad had distinguished himself as a trial lawyer with 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.
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.
