Thomas Scott – Tools for Humanity

Est. reading time: 6 mins

He’s certainly got a lot of explaining to do on all shores. Such is the case when you’re the legal boss for an ambitious project co-invented by Sam Altman that aims to create tools humans need to prepare for AI; the very mention of it results in many confused faces. Well, Thomas Scott is here […]

Justin McCabe – OnLogic 

Est. reading time: 5 mins

From the outside, the positions of general counsel and global sales leader seem very different. One requires a law degree (and generally a certain amount of risk averseness), and the other likely is helmed by someone with a degree in business (and generally open to unchartered opportunities). Someone in both roles could easily spend 40-plus […]

I recently spoke to Vanguard about my favorite mistake and how I’ve learned from it throughout my career. That story starts with a clipping from the July 25, 2011, edition of Newsweek magazine that I keep tacked up next to my computer monitor.   The piece’s headline is “Marissa Mayer on the day she ‘broke’ the […]

It may be one of the world’s oldest industries, but manufacturing is the new high-tech sector. Artificial Intelligence, new processes like 3D printing and digital tools are increasingly reshaping—and accelerating—how parts go from simple concept to production, and one company is helping drive that revolution.  Xometry, which went public almost three years ago, offers an […]

The intellectual property (IP) community has always been central to today’s innovation society. As the pace of innovation accelerates, especially with the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in general—and generative AI (GenAI) in particular—it will be essential for IP professionals and organizations to adopt new strategies and operational paradigms created by the rapid proliferation of […]

Though the University of South Carolina football team didn’t compete for the national title this past fall, the Gamecocks did well at the gate and merchandise counter. With much credit due to its five-year partnership with Affinaquest, the university acquired 4,500-plus new ticket buyers and more than 800 new donors, enhancing its bottom line by […]

Emilio Bugs – GFT

Est. reading time: 5 mins

As Emilio Bugs began his legal career around 20 years ago, his father offered advice on what lawyers should and shouldn’t do. Long hair and pierced ears? Out of order! But while his father may have known best from a conventional standpoint, the precocious son had other influences that turned out fine. The young Bugs […]

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.

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.
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.
