Features Law Firm

Christianne Kerns – Hahn & Hahn

It was a firm and a position worth waiting for—marking a historic progression—remembers Christianne Kerns, thinking back to joining Hahn & Hahn 17 years ago. It was there where she later became the first female managing partner of the prestigious 121-year-old Pasadena, California-based law firm which has transitioned from a historic “old-line firm” into a […]

James M. Fisher II and Kevin E. Broyles – FisherBroyles

Quite the jump the FisherBroyles law firm had on the competition as far as remote operations are concerned. Its widely distributed 265-plus lawyers and support staff haven’t reported to an office since 2002, when founders and managing partners James M. Fisher II and Kevin E. Broyles deemed a physical facility dispensable. No need for lavish […]

Anthony Raimondo – Raimondo & Associates

He’s used to sometimes being bad-mouthed in the media, Anthony Raimondo saying it comes with the territory. “I am a defense attorney and part of my obligation is to take on unpopular causes,” the president of Raimondo & Associates tells Vanguard in May from his office in Fresno, California. “But doing the right thing doesn’t […]

Victoria Beckman — Frost Brown Todd LLC

There are many areas in Victoria Beckman’s life where she’s broken the mold of expectation, like becoming a champion roller figure skater in her native Colombia. And becoming one of the first women from her country’s coffee belt to become a cybersecurity legal expert in the United States. Now working in Ohio, Beckman’s a co-chair […]

Javier Ruscica Olivares – Pruzzo Ruscica Brotfeld Abogados

Mining is one of the pillars of the Chilean economy, with more than a third of the world’s copper extracted from this long and narrow country on the Pacific coast. However, Chilean mining has been affected by an ongoing rain deficit and urgently needs fresh or industrial water in the near future to sustain operations. […]

Bryn Sherman – Offit Kurman

Relationship-building isn’t always a given at major law firms. Attorneys are continuously tasked with moving from one case to the next, so they’re rarely able to offer the full gambit of services or truly gauge the effectiveness of advice rendered. Which is far from ideal, says Bryn Sherman, a principal at Maryland-based Offit Kurman, which […]

Anna Aguilar – Aguilar Bentley LLC

It’s not exactly a modern-day retelling of the David versus Goliath saga, but when it comes to Aguilar Bentley’s track record in New York City law, some of the story’s elements might well ring true. Replace the two guys with women, one being a mother of triplets. Then consider that the small feisty firm—founded in […]

Jay Kotzker – Kotzker Law Group

Judging by myriad cable news segments and glossy magazine spreads, it’s clear that the country’s marijuana trade isn’t burning out anytime soon. If the hot headlines aren’t enough, some simple statistics should suffice: According to research firm The Arcview Group, legal cannabis is now the fastest-growing industry—and job market—in the U.S. And yet, key legal […]

Lourdes Padilla Alaman – Grupo Sevago

In the eyes of just about any corporate lawyer, Lourdes Padilla Alaman had it made: the high-profile job, the sterling resume, a reputation as one of the best pharma lawyers anywhere in Mexico. And a fulfilling home life holding it all together. Leaving it all behind to launch your own boutique firm? Maybe, if your […]

Ozer Teitelbaum – TnT IP

Like the literal universe, the cosmos of intellectual property is expanding, only there’s still plenty of room for collision as companies jockey to acquire, manage and protect intellectual property. So it pays to get guidance both on a legal and science front. That’s a rare two-fer, but for the past three years a slew of […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
