Albert Newell – DroneShield

It’s among the most moving of targets, literally and figuratively. The fledgling drone security industry in which an Australia-headquartered company known as DroneShield has been at the forefront—trying to keep the skies safe from carelessly operated or ill-intentioned unmanned aircraft. That’s given rise to a host of legal matters that, for the foreseeable future, might […]

Allyson Guy Krause – Promethean

Students have taken personalized tours of the White House, spoken with a park ranger halfway around the world on the topic of adaptation, and even tinkered with protons, neurons and electrons—without having to worry about blowing anything up. Those are just a few examples of how Promethean’s interactive educational products are being used in classrooms […]

Bert Kaminski – ServiceMax

Bert Kaminski had a choice to make. Not quite as nerve-racking as leaving private practice for the dot-com bubble before it burst, but close enough to cause a few sleepless nights: remain as chief commercial counsel at GE Digital, or jump ship to head the legal operations for a recently spun-off subsidiary. Once again, Kaminski […]

Curtis Schehr – DCS Corp.

When a company bids on federal contracts, especially on those involving national security, it had better adhere to a stringent code for ethics and compliance. Curtis Schehr knew this from his roles as an in-house lawyer at several public and privately-held government contractors in the Washington, D.C. area, and his reputation for thoroughness was well-known […]

Daniel Perez-Cirera – Samsung Mexico

Daniel Perez-Cirera rarely feels nervous anymore. Nervous was going to bed Sunday night ahead of another 80-hour workweek, or flying to Finland for that first meeting at Nokia headquarters. As he walks once again into the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT) in Mexico City, Perez-Cirera isn’t gripped with doubts. But he’s aware of the […]

Elizabeth Bowles – Aristotle Inc.

She can’t lay claim to the study, but Elizabeth Bowles eagerly cites Purdue University agricultural economists who last year concluded that every dollar invested in broadband brings a long-term, four-fold economic return to Indiana. The formula brings tangible benefits most everywhere, Bowles says, including her home state of Arkansas where she serves as president, chairwoman […]

Francisco Pinilla – Uber (Latin America)

For most of us, using Uber—an app that literally puts transportation at your fingertips—represents the pinnacle of modern convenience. Francisco Pinilla doesn’t think that superlative goes nearly far enough. As legal director and head of legal transactions for the company’s Latin America operations (LATAM for short), Pinilla understands how Uber’s model and methods have not […]

Frederick Dawe – Comtrol Corporation

A string of calls with company vendors in the morning; a Skype session with outside counsel in the afternoon about handling patent trolls looking to extort money from the company; preparation for the next day’s big board meeting. It’s on days like these that Fred Dawe stops to make sure his sneakers are tied extra […]

Gordon Kushner – ECi Software Solutions

A product of the western Canadian province of Alberta, Gordon Kushner can’t help but think in hockey terms when discussing his role as general counsel, senior vice president and secretary at ECi Software Solutions in Fort Worth, Texas. “It’s like being the corporate world’s equivalent of the center iceman,” he says in reference to the […]

Hailey You – Gluwa

She has a fascination with the more unconventional, even mysterious industries. It’s one of many traits that seem to set Hailey You apart from most lawyers, be they in private practice or in-house. Hence, the San Francisco-based startup for which she became the first general counsel this past February. That’s Gluwa, a blockchain-powered platform built […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
