TIM Brasil, a division of Telecom Italia, excels in telecommunications. However, it’s occasionally struggled with articulating its services on paper. Its cellphone contract, once a cumbersome set of four documents filled with legal jargon and fine print, was a case in point. But by teaming up with a legal tech firm in São Paulo, the […]

Every time the Mexico national football team takes to the field, thousands of fans tune in to watch. As they watch players kick and pass the ball, TV cameras continually pan past large ads for Xiaomi Technology. Becoming the official sponsor of the soccer team was a big win for the Chinese-based cell phone company. […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

By all accounts, shopping for products has never been easier: a couple taps and click on a computer or phone and within days, the package is at the front door. That is, if everything goes as planned. And when it doesn’t—lost packages, delivery of incorrect or damaged products—Ricardo Lagreca, senior legal director at Mercado Livre […]

Renata Cunha Giuliani – Akamai Technologies

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When Renata Cunha Giuliani joined Akamai Technologies, there was no welcoming bouquet on her desk or procession of new colleagues stopping by to wish her well. That happens these days when people onboard in a pandemic, although like other Akamai employees working remotely, she was given a budget for establishing her home office. Giuliani’s joining […]

When you’re the only lawyer at a complex, midsize technology company and overseeing all legal operations, developing ways to stay organized not only helps internal and external stakeholders—but also yourself.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

From classroom tech to top-secret aviation projects, there are few industries that global engineering giant Honeywell doesn’t touch.

Renata Loyola – Bquate

Est. reading time: 5 mins

“Little Radio,” her mother called Renata Loyola when she was growing up in Brazil. For the girl liked to sing. Didn’t matter the genre, be it rock, blues, folk, classical, electronic, jazz or whatever. Rolling Stones, Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Florence and the Machine, Avicii—all those airwave staples enthralled her. She’d learn the lyrics by […]

Rich Suminski – TE Connectivity

When your company goes from being part of a global conglomerate to a spin-off, it’s not always a great story. That might’ve seemed the case with the collapse of Tyco—at the time, one of the world’s biggest corporations, with 240,000 employees—shocking shareholders and the US economy. The CEO, CFO and board resigned, the stock plummeted and […]

Testimonials

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.
– 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.
