Features Latin America

Gastón Tarabal – Peninsula Investments Group

It’s a trend he hopes continues in Latin America, both from a social and business perspective. Long known as a region beset by poverty, there’s a middle class growing slowly in many of the countries and with it the need for quality, middle-income multifamily housing in urban environments. And that’s where Gaston Tarabal’s employer is […]

Enrique Aguilar – Grupo IGS

Grupo IGS keeps growing in Mexico, and General Counsel Enrique Aguilar helps make sure it is growing right. The private equity firm is near to closing a deal for industrial properties worth $140 million. It is looking at new affordable housing opportunities. The breadth of its holdings spreads throughout the country and tests Aguilar’s abilities […]

Florencia Garza – Oriflame

Some might cautiously get their feet wet after assuming one of the prime positions at a multinational company in an industry in which they’re not that familiar. Others opt for full immersion to bump up their learning. Florencia Garza seems to fit that latter category, and at her new place of employment—the Latin American division […]

Alberto Perales Mendoza – Elementia

As a teenager in Mexico, Alberto Perales Mendoza held an inexplicable fascination with law. At 15, he set out to become the first lawyer in his family. Since collecting the first of four law degrees in Mexico and the United States, Perales hasn’t stopped learning and evolving in the practice of law in multiple industries […]

Valentina Moreno – Uber Central America, Panama and the Caribbean

Diana Daza – SGS Colombia

In 2014, La Aguada Beach reached a milestone: Located adjacent to lush rainforests within Utría National Park, it became the first beach in Colombia to meet the government’s new standards for quality and sustainability in a protected area—a certification known as the Colombian Tourism Quality Mark. Getting there required a rigorous analysis: Certification company SGS […]

Nicolás Cuadros – Philip Morris International

Between 2013 and 2016 the number of adults aged 25 to 44 who used e-cigarettes nearly doubled. Each day, thousands of smokers are switching to smoke-free alternatives, designed to create a flavorful nicotine-containing vapor, without burning and smoke. It’s a trend that many cigarette manufacturers are hoping is a flash in the pan—a hiccup in […]

Mario Ayala Claros – Energia del Pacifico

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 […]

Jorge Alfredo Marroquín Cabrera – Banco G&T Continental

Often, legal departments among competing businesses are separated by at least a polite distance. But if there’s a greater good to be pursued, some teamwork would seem in order. That sentiment guides Jorge Alfredo Marroquín Cabrera in his new capacity as corporate and regulatory legal manager of Banco G&T Continental, as he forges relationships with […]

Hans J. Hutterer – FINSA

It’s pretty simple. One violation of FINSA’s new anti-corruption policy and you are out. Forever. Bribery. Robbery. Drug trafficking. There is no shortage of crime in the countries where FINSA operates, and technology is allowing people to become more creative in their methods of deception. But as political instability rises and democracies crumble, countries and […]

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.
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.
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.
