Abby Blomstrom – Monumental Sports & Entertainment

When Abby Blomstrom walked into her office at Monumental Sports & Entertainment in late September last year, her first hour was spent like any other weekday morning: checking emails, going over the day’s appointments, the usual minutaie. By 10, however, Blomstrom was switching gears. She met with the executive team to discuss and prepare for […]

Steve Earnest – Herschend Family Entertainment Corporation

You’re in the air—loop-de-looping, twisting, up and down. The adrenaline’s pumping, the wind’s whipping your face, your stomach is in knots, you’re screaming yourself hoarse. It’s the rollercoaster rush. But after a minute or so of heart-pounding chaos, it’s over, and you’re dizzily on your way (or maybe jumping back in line for another go-around). […]

Mark DeVitre – Entertainment Studios/Allen Media Group

While societal divisiveness is alive and well in cable television, there’s at least one notable exception—The Weather Channel. The Pentagon has a direct and very secure line with the network. Airports rely upon TWC, as do municipalities prone to anything from heat waves to floods to hurricanes to blizzards. National surveys show the network is […]

Stephen L. Polozola – Urban Air Adventure Park

Stephen L. Polozola’s wife used to tell him how happy he seemed upon changing careers, but he hasn’t heard that for quite a while. Maybe not since last year when he became the full-time general counsel and executive vice president at Urban Air Adventure Park’s headquarters in Bedford, Texas. A much distinguished construction and real […]

Lisa Gazley – 20th Century Fox

She’s not a lawyer, but Lisa Gazley just might have a resume and professional responsibilities that would be the envy of many who have that juris doctorate on their wall—in addition to law school debt that they’ll be paying off for a long time. Meanwhile the personable Gazley continues to have a front-row seat as […]

Brett Tarr – Caesars Entertainment Corporation

Employing 70,000 people and operating 55 casinos around the world, along with dozens of accompanying hotels and restaurants, the name of this behemoth is synonymous with nightlife and weekend getaways, as well as a growing presence in interactive virtual reality. Taken together, the legal landscape of Caesars Entertainment Corporation (CEC)—a $4.5 billon enterprise so dynamic […]

Richard Patti – Live Nation Entertainment

He figures that a million lawyers would gladly step into his position, and if Richard Patti weren’t the senior vice president and associate general counsel of Live Nation Entertainment, he, too, would be most envious of whoever held that plum. After all, opportunities do arise for him to mingle with A-List celebs, the progressive corporate […]

Rosemary Colliver – LAIKA

There are few disciplines more detailed, more granular, than stop-motion animation, the filmmaking technique pioneered in the late 19th century that is in the midst of a digital-age renaissance. As proof of that claim, just consider the 129,000 individual frames that comprise a 90-minute film. Or talk to Rosemary Colliver, general counsel and head of […]

Liberal arts and technology—with a punch

It’s still music to Hiro Tachibana’s ears. The way the late Steve Jobs would articulate about the harmonic convergence of technology and liberal arts. How, years ago Jobs would remind the people who became today’s high-tech movers and shakers that the future would not be by technology alone. In Tachibana’s case, Jobs was preaching to […]

His game is always on

To dust off hockey parlance oft-used when an open player taps in an easy goal, you could say Andrew Koehler was in the right place at the right time in 2014, when he found a position as a law clerk that would put him on the fast track to being counsel for the San Jose […]

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.
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.
