Features Law Firms

David Gibson – AmerisourceBergen

Formed in 2001 as the result of a merger between AmeriSource Health and Bergen Brunswig, AmerisourceBergen is a pharmaceutical services company that aims to reduce health care costs and improve patient outcomes through the distribution of affordable pharmaceuticals, over-the-counter (OTC) products and home health care supplies as well as innovative partnerships with global manufacturers, providers […]

David Vetter – Tech Data Corporation

Often the hardest part of using new software is getting users onboard, not choosing the program or plugging it in. That was the case when David Vetter told Tech Data Corporation’s legal team he was going to use a different “matter management system” to manage cases, draft letters and perform daily tasks. Vetter recalls the […]

Depth, substance and professionalism always surface

When VHB was looking for a deputy general counsel in 2008, someone it could groom for the top spot, it emphasized a technical background. Someone well-versed in civil engineering might have been ideal. That wasn’t quite Khristopher M. Gregoire’s specialty, but one might have thought he was overqualified. For prior to graduating from the University […]

Duo Security

At a certain point in their careers, many attorneys find themselves at a crossroads. They’ve paid their dues in law firms and spent time working in large, corporate settings. Then, the job starts to feel like just that, a job. Such lawyers, a breed driven to do more, begin to look around, to question. Peter […]

Follett Corporation

One of the best lessons Mark Sproat ever learned wasn’t at Loyola University Chicago School of Law; it came well after establishing himself as a capable and ambitious in-house lawyer at the former Hewitt Associates, an Illinois-based human capital, outsourcing and management consulting firm that became Aon Hewitt following its 2010 acquisition by the British […]

Gopal Burgher – BurgherGray

By the summer of 2009, less than a year after the collapse of investment firms Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, the U.S. financial crisis was in full effect—and Gopal Burgher was about to experience it firsthand. With his firm on the cusp of a desperate merger, one he knew he wouldn’t survive, the 37-year-old attorney […]

GPD Group

Jackie Bennett may be young for a general counsel, but she got her start in the engineering industry at the far younger age of 10, so she’s never been one to let her freshness hold her back. Bennett’s father was an engineer and, as a kid, she spent her summers at the engineering firm, doing […]

Greg Chemnitz – Materion Corporation

As a high performance engineered materials company with an international presence, it takes a certain kind of general counsel to lead the legal team at Materion Corporation. With a degree in advanced international studies from Johns Hopkins University and a personal background that includes a number of connections to the European market, Greg Chemnitz has […]

GSE Systems

When pilots are learning to fly, they often use a flight simulator. It is, after all, much safer and less costly to crash a computer than an airplane. In a similar vein, GSE Systems constructs highly accurate computer simulators for nuclear and fossil fuel power plants, the petroleum industry and other industrial processors. These simulators […]

Heather Bush – Bureau Veritas

When you stay in business for nearly 200 years, you’re bound to grow. And growth, while a sign of success, has its risks—new markets have pitfalls that can swallow underprepared companies whole. In the case of Bureau Veritas, a global leader in testing, inspection and certification (TIC) services to over 400,000 businesses in 140 countries, […]

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.
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.
