So, what’s in a name? A lot when it’s the identity of the almost 10-year-old daughter of Cassie Marka and her husband, Bill. A willow is strong enough to bend, and that’s the name of their little girl. Willow was diagnosed in utero with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. She has half a heart and wouldn’t […]

A young couple just started a family. Though there’s so much to do in the present as they adapt to parenthood, they’re also concerned about the future. Specifically, how will they pay for higher education? Another couple is raising a child with a life-altering disability. While health insurance plans pay for medical care and devices […]

Chris Weinstock – PennyMac Loan Services

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The customer is always right and, for well over a year, that customer has been demanding a remote mortgage. Post-pandemic, that’s likely to be the new normal. So notes Chris Weinstock, who’s long taken the pulse of prospective home buyers. During the late 1990s, he aided their cause as a deputy general counsel at Countrywide […]

Chris Young – Omni Bridgeway

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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 […]

Chris Young — Bentham IMF

Est. reading time: 6 mins

In years past, a small company with valuable litigation claims may not have had the financial wherewithal to navigate the unpredictability and cost of commercial litigation—even if their claims had merit. The alternative might have been to settle for pennies on the dollar, bleed its legal fund dry or simply not proceed with its case. […]

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.
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.
