Adrienne Hollander – American Regent

Est. reading time: 5 mins

In 2012, Adrienne Hollander’s resilience and grit were unexpectedly tested. She gave birth on Tuesday and went on maternity leave—only to find out on Friday that the firm employing her for the last four years had closed its doors. She’d been with Dewey & LeBoeuf since 2007, beginning first at Dewey Ballentine as a summer […]

Flattening homes and businesses with winds of more than 150 miles per hour, Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico and the rest of the northeastern Caribbean with an unmatched vehemence in September 2017. Nearly 3,000 people died and the island’s power grid was nearly wiped out. Luis Ceballos remembers the catastrophe too well. As a member […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

An essential business under any circumstance, the French-headquartered animal health company, Ceva Santé Animale, couldn’t allow COVID-19 to slow its operations two years ago. Whatever direction the pandemic took, people would still be taking care of pets, poultry and livestock. For Associate General Counsel Tony Strait, it was business as usual at what’s known as […]

Maria Ostrovsky – Deciphera

Est. reading time: 4 mins

If you don’t know what a switch-control kinase inhibitor platform is, you’re probably not alone. Kinases are enzymes that help regulate and orchestrate cellular functions. If they mutate, kinases contribute to the development and progression of diseases including cancer. So cancer drugs known as kinase inhibitors prevent the mutated, or dysregulated, kinase from being active. […]

Robby McGarry – Kindeva Drug Delivery

Est. reading time: 4 mins

There are many reasons why someone might not take medicine prescribed to them. Sometimes it’s because it’s difficult to self-administer. Other times it’s because it’s unaffordable. Whatever the reason, the alternative—an untreated medical condition—is not ideal. Robby McGarry hates it when necessary, and sometimes lifesaving, medications and treatments are out of reach for people who […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
