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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Jared Hunsaker – Entrata

When he first arrived at Entrata’s cramped corporate headquarters, then located on the dimly lit second floor of a credit union in Salt Lake City’s outskirts, Jared Hunsaker—the company’s sixtieth hire—had to share his cubicle with another coworker. Today, the seasoned general counsel is one of more than 1,600 employees. Meanwhile, the company’s revenue has […]

John Geschke – Zendesk Inc.

Time was when John Geschke would apply his mix of legal and business acumen at a couple of prestigious firms in Palo Alto, California, structuring complex deals for blue-chip clients, but never really knowing the long-term impact of his services. Once the deal was sealed, there’d be another one pending. For Geschke, that’s how it […]

Suzanne Law Marisa – OVHcloud

“I was up working until 2 in the morning last night,” Suzanne Law Marisa confides, with surprising verve, during a recent interview with Vanguard magazine. “So, I apologize in advance if I sound a little off.” Last night, it should be noted, referred to Sunday, after a weekend packed with kids sporting events that included […]

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.
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.
