While most people can get their daily dose of vitamin C from a glass of orange juice, David Hubbard gets his by looking inward. “My values and the core to my being is the vitamin C of life,” he says. “I want to be cool, calm, collected, curious, creative and courageous while spreading ‘CLAW,’ which […]

Shifting from private practice to an in-house legal role at Clearent in 2020 opened new areas of practice for Mary Kate Hogan.

Yukio Morikubo – Impinj, Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When people are searching for a new job, they may be turned away from a company by the language it uses in its postings. For instance, job seekers who use “they/them” pronouns may feel unwelcome if the job posting uses “he/she” to describe duties. Other words, such as “ninja” or “guru,” also have implicit bias […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Even sellers with unique or necessary products may have difficulty reaching their target audiences on e-marketplaces—and with good reason. Amazon has over 9.7 million sellers; and its Latin American equivalent, Mercado Libre, has over 11.2 million. As Luana Rosa da Silva explains, her employer, Merama, acquires a majority share in brands struggling to stand out, […]

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.
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.
– Kevin C. Rakowski, Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, Compliance with Radian Group 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.
