Est. reading time: 5 mins

Until a few years ago, staff at Interior Logic Group used a centralized email to communicate with the legal department. There were two email addresses—one for asking questions about litigation and another for questions about contracts. No one had personal contact with anyone in the department and it usually took 11 business days to get […]

Anjali Jesseramsing – American Association for Justice

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When someone clicks “accept all terms and conditions,” they often don’t know what they’re agreeing to. As a result, people sometimes sign away their right to sue a company even though it might be in their best interest. At the American Association for Justice, General Counsel Anjali Jesseramsing is fighting to protect this right, which […]

Timothy Norton – Health First

Est. reading time: 5 mins

In early August, Timothy Norton’s phone started ringing off the hook—and the news wasn’t good. Just when he thought a semi-vaccinated public might put COVID-19 in the rear-view mirror, the CEO of Health First’s Hospital Division told him available space in South and Central Florida hospitals was dwindling fast. As system vice president, associate general […]

James Casey – Akamai Technologies

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Mr. Rogers, Mr. Ed and Mr. Magoo are household names, but what about Mr. Framework? While he’s not a lovable children’s TV host, a talking horse or a bumbling cartoon character, James Casey’s role is just as important to the continued success of Akamai Technologies. As the company’s chief privacy officer, Casey believes strong compliance […]

As if helping the company navigate the challenges of social distancing and a freefalling economy weren’t enough, Hugo Teufel III has addressed privacy issues associated with one of the largest mergers in American history: that of the Raytheon Company and United Technologies Corporation.

Brian Baldrate – Raytheon

Est. reading time: 5 mins

As a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army, Brian Baldrate commanded his fair share of missions, many involving Abrams tanks—massive machines whose mobilization required impeccable coordination and constant communication. The tactics and terrains may have changed, but for Baldrate, general counsel for Raytheon’s international and Washington, D.C., operations, the aim remains the same: to […]

Jo Ann Davaris – Booking Holdings

Est. reading time: 4 mins

In April 2016, just days after Jo Ann Davaris was named global chief privacy officer (CPO) for international consulting giant Mercer, the European Union passed the sweeping General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which laid out strict rules for how companies operating in the EU handle the personal information of consumers. At that point, companies had […]

Michael Kauffman – Tech DNA

Est. reading time: 6 mins

Imagine this: After months of market analysis, your company has finally separated contenders from pretenders and found its acquisition target: a plucky Silicon Valley startup with a game-changing machine learning technology platform. Later that day, you see a story on CNN about one of your competitors being fined hundreds of millions of dollars for violating […]

Caroline Elkin – Activision

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The Barclays Center’s regular tenants, the NBA’s Nets and NHL’s Islanders, don’t always draw such a crowd. But last summer, the Brooklyn arena played host to the Overwatch League finals, drawing 20,000 zealous spectators to London Spitfire’s victory over Philadelphia Fusion in an action-packed video game competition where the best players in the world went […]


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.

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.
