Angela Borreggine – Allianz Global Investors

Angela Borreggine knows how to make herself heard—it’s hard not to, considering one of her passions is singing with the Cecilia Chorus of New York as well as the Brooklyn Oratory Choir at St. Boniface. But the notes Borreggine hits as chief legal officer at Allianz Global Investors are equally high—and complex. As of November, […]

Stuart Lurie – Certified Collectibles Group

A Marvel and Star Wars aficionado since boyhood, Stuart Lurie hopes that the new year brings a return of the real live comic book convention. Those so-called comic-cons often attract tens of thousands of fans to major venues nationwide but last year mostly went virtual, if at all, what with COVID-19 being beyond the saving […]

Hooman Shahlavi – Sofinnova Investments

He’s a dealmaker, a person with a big-picture vantage and always looking for ways to grow the firm and its investments. Chief legal officer at Sofinnova Investments since January 2020 and the company’s sole in-house lawyer for almost 14 years, Hooman Shahlavi relishes the role that allows him to do so much more than he […]

Mike Shuckerow – Aspiration Partners Inc.

It’s late, you’re hungry and low on gas. So you fill your tank, maybe grab a burrito or a slice of pizza and something to drink and get on with your life. And if you use your debit card, somewhere on the other side of the planet, a tree gets planted. You may never see […]

Beth Kinsley – Northland Investment

“Do you give up when things get hard?” Beth Kinsley distinctly remembers the question posed by her Colby College advisor sophomore year when she was about to drop her microeconomics course due to an illness. As it turns out, she didn’t drop that course. In fact, she embraced economics as her minor. And her advisor’s […]

Seth Miller – Cambridge Investment Group Inc.

Like the wine he ferments during his off-hours, Seth Miller says his legal skills have matured to the benefit of the financial solutions firm where he’s logged nearly 13 years, the last six as general counsel. And that maturation process remains ongoing, with Miller’s employer, Iowa-based Cambridge Investment Group Inc. intent on maintaining its independence […]

Chris Young – Omni Bridgeway

High stakes commercial litigation moves slowly—and ever so expensively. It takes time to resolve patent disputes, trade secrets cases, international arbitrations, breach of contract and more. To paraphrase the late Tom Petty, the waiting may be the hardest part. For Chris Young, general counsel for North America with Australia-based litigation funder Omni Bridgeway, patience is […]

Brock Cooper – Veterans United Home Loans

Scrolling through the social media postings on the Veterans United Home Loans page makes Brock Cooper feel good. There, this former member of the Missouri National Guard sees photos of fellow veterans who have become first-time homeowners, including a Navy veteran who finished cancer treatment, a woman in the Air Force and an Army veteran […]

Teresa Bernstein – ACON Investments

In the world of investments, Teresa Bernstein says navigating high finance is a lot like swimming in open water: You must frequently look up for a landmark to guide you—or else it’s easy to veer off course or get swept away by the current. Bernstein would know. With three titles at the Washington, D.C.-based firm […]

Priya Huggett – Brixton Capital

As the first woman of color nominated for vice president of the United States, Kamala Harris has given working women of color across the country a boost—including Brixton Capital’s General Counsel Priya Huggett. Not that other women of color haven’t achieved career distinction while raising a family, it’s just a hard fought process, says Huggett, […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
