Steven J. Feder is in familiar territory, which makes him somewhat of a rarity in corporate law. Prior to accepting his latest post at CompoSecure, Inc. in April, he’d been general counsel at two other publicly traded companies. “Not many people can claim three tours of duty as a GC,” he tells Vanguard in August […]

Kurt Meyers developed his own strategies to manage white collar crime cases as a federal prosecutor.

In 1935, deciding they’d rather pool their money to start a cooperative instead of putting it in a traditional bank, seven United Airlines employees launched Alliant Credit Union. The motto—“Be Bold”—drew Meredith Ritchie to the company in August 2007.  For the past 15 years, she’s helped Alliant grow safely and give customers competitive rates. On […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When Tiffany McMillan-McWaters relocated to Southeast Virginia from England with her husband in 2013, she encountered a difficult in-house legal market saturated with attorneys—and next to no job opportunities.

Scott Adler – American Express Global Business Travel

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The global economy is on the move again with businesspeople having resumed traveling. Virtual interactions have their use but are no substitute for meeting face to face.

Jeff Midbo – United Wholesale Mortgage

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Putting together assembly lines at John Deere’s Georgia manufacturing plant might not seem like a springboard to a legal career. However, Jeff Midbo says this work helped him understand business processes, a crucial skill for an attorney when interpreting and applying laws to a company’s operations. Now the senior vice president, deputy general counsel and […]

Manuel Matadamas – FirstCash

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Mexico’s economic growth notwithstanding, the World Bank still estimates that two-thirds of the country’s adults don’t have access to traditional credit services. Even fewer have made or received digital payments. The same holds true in much of Latin America and the numbers are even more discouraging for women. Thus, any entity which can ease the […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

As Ketan Shah looked forward to graduating with an accounting degree from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana in 2002, he envisioned a clear career path ahead of him.

Every day can be rewarding for Tom Griffin when he’s out and about New York City or the rest of the United States. He’ll pass an independent auto parts retailer and see the parking lot teeming with customers. Or maybe it’ll be a software startup that’s about to introduce the latest app. Or a franchisee-owned […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
