Jason Pollack – Christie’s

Evening sales at Christie’s in New York City are not to be missed, a highlight of the social calendar where billionaires are ready to raise their paddles and bid on rare and obscure objects—art by DaVinci or Picasso, jewelry, and recently, an artifact from the Jurassic period. But all that changed in 2020 when the […]

Jonathan Truppman – Casper

Perhaps it’s a business investment proposition everyone can bank on—because every person requires sleep. Armed with the premise of a no-fail argument, award-winning products and an attorney who made the list of “up-and-coming lawyers to watch in 2018,” New York-based Casper went public in February. After six years of work, it became the first publicly-owned […]

Jessica Mastrogiovanni – New York & Company

In the apparel industry, ideas are a company’s lifeblood. Fresh designs, new fashion lines, trendsetting concepts—businesses have entire teams dedicated to brainstorming the next big thing. With a multitude of ideas, one can imagine the legal touch points are as many and close together as pencil stripes on a blouse. Among them, corporate governance, employment, […]

Jonathan Hawkins – KidKraft

There’s a scene in “Big,” the 1988 film about a boy whose wish to be a grownup magically comes true, where the lead character, played by Tom Hanks, invites his best friend to see his new office at the headquarters of MacMillan Toy Company. Surrounded by the latest games and gadgets, many of which have […]

John Wicks – 5.11 Tactical

The emails come in at all hours: another country, another sighting. Now it’s up to Wicks to decide how to proceed. Assuming the intel is good, and the potential benefits outweigh the costs, he’ll give the green light. The warehouse raid is on. It sounds like the stuff of a Hollywood potboiler. Only, the contraband […]

Jeff Benjamin – Avon Products Inc.

He’s earned his second retirement, having come out of his first in 2012,  after a brief respite that followed 37 eventful years in a variety of general counseling, ethics and compliance roles to the U.S. operations of Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis. So in early 2017, Jeff Benjamin informed his employer of the preceding five years, […]

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.
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.
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.
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.
