Teresa Villarreal Torres – Xignux

Tom Cruise’s portrayal of a military lawyer was the spark for Teresa Villarreal’s legal career, but Xignux has been the energy source to keep it running. As a girl growing up in Monterrey, Mexico, Villarreal loved courtroom dramas on the big screen, and Cruise’s role as Lt. Daniel Kaffee in “A Few Good Men” was […]

Chris Schindler – Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline Inc.

To paraphrase a popular adage, you can take the man out of Kentucky, but you can’t take Kentucky out of the man. The pull of his roots was so powerful, in fact, that after nearly 25 years at venerated D.C. law firm Hogan & Hartson (now Hogan Lovells)—where Chief Justice John Roberts once practiced—Chris Schindler […]

Jeff Garrett – Pioneer Natural Resources Co.

Energy flowing from the Permian Basin in Texas runs west to east from Midland to Houston. Houston native Jeff Garrett’s career has run in the opposite direction, as well as up, down and sideways with the advent of horizontal drilling. As an associate general counsel for Pioneer Natural Resources, Garrett helped the Dallas-based company build […]

Rafael Aysanoa – Corporación Primax

In 2013, in a rural mountain village in northern Peru, a tanker truck carrying oil tipped over while trying to navigate a rough patch of road. Spilling 9,000 gallons of oil across the surrounding landscape, the accident tainted the soil and destroyed the crops of 30 local farms. What could have been a public relations […]

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.
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.
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.
