Frederick Dawe – Comtrol Corporation

Est. reading time: 4 mins

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 […]

Bert Kaminski – ServiceMax

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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 […]

Allyson Guy Krause – Promethean

Est. reading time: 4 mins

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 […]

Richard Ogawa – Inphi Corporation

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When Richard Ogawa opened his email in a hotel room in Taipei, Taiwan, to find a message from the White House inviting him to meet President Obama, he thought it was a joke. Or spam. Or sent to the wrong Richard Ogawa entirely. So he ignored it. Within minutes, a string of 202 numbers were […]

Logan Maley – Procore

Est. reading time: 5 mins

She relishes the role of an in-house lawyer for reasons that include the flexibility to work from home, if need be. Not that the to-do list is any shorter there for Logan Maley. On the contrary as she juggles new motherhood with her fast-paced job. “I still put in just as many hours as I […]

Jared Hunsaker – Entrata

Est. reading time: 4 mins

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.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

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 […]

Albert Newell – DroneShield

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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 […]

Suzanne Law Marisa – OVHcloud

Est. reading time: 5 mins

“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 […]

Hailey You – Gluwa

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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.
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.
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.
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.
