Even sellers with unique or necessary products may have difficulty reaching their target audiences on e-marketplaces—and with good reason. Amazon has over 9.7 million sellers; and its Latin American equivalent, Mercado Libre, has over 11.2 million. As Luana Rosa da Silva explains, her employer, Merama, acquires a majority share in brands struggling to stand out, […]

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, store shelves were being wiped out by people stocking up on essential supplies. Among the hardest-to-find items was toilet paper. For manufacturers, including the Kimberly-Clark Corporation, keeping up with demand was a challenge. The international company is known for the brands Cottonelle and Scott, as well as other […]

It helps to go the extra mile. Or, more precisely, the extra 8,000 miles. That’s roughly the distance as the plane flies between Buenos Aires in Argentina and Riyadh in Saudi Arabia. The Middle East seemingly prime territory for the kind of livestock medication Biogenesis Bago produces and distributes throughout South America and beyond, it […]

While the North American Free Trade Agreement of 1994 did much to incentivize and encourage cross-border commerce among the United States, Canada and Mexico, inequities persisted. This was especially true on the labor front, with trade imbalances stemming from Mexican workers being paid significantly less than their counterparts to the north. Subsequent arrangements, including the […]

Every time the Mexico national football team takes to the field, thousands of fans tune in to watch. As they watch players kick and pass the ball, TV cameras continually pan past large ads for Xiaomi Technology. Becoming the official sponsor of the soccer team was a big win for the Chinese-based cell phone company. […]

Salvador Martínez – Diageo

There’s much responsibility that comes with overseeing the legal needs of a liquor distiller and distributor. At least there should be, Salvador Martinez opines from Mexico. “I don’t want people to drink more,” says the Mexican lawyer who until recently worked with the Latin American division of the British multinational Diageo, which makes brews and […]

Vanessa Isidoro – Loggi

Est. reading time: 4 mins

While a slew of logistical obstacles—among them, the immense size of Brazil—had slowed e-commerce in the South American giant prior to COVID-19, it got a kick-start last year from the judiciary. The deliverers that courier service Loggi relies on for around 300,000 daily rounds can indeed be classified as independent contractors rather than employees, the […]

It’s a site that makes her glow, nearly 500 sprawling acres of 400,000 shiny rectangular modules sucking in solar rays in a remote valley 30 miles north of the Chilean capital of Santiago. For Paulina Cox Vyhmeister had a strong hand in making this project a reality, and it’s a major contributor to her homeland’s […]


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.

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.

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.
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.
