Features Watch List 2020

Jen Nichols – Harsch Investment Properties

Growing up as one of seven Black and biracial children in the outskirts of Detroit, Jen Nichols witnessed racism toward her family firsthand, something she’d also experience later as a real estate attorney. In a genetic twist of fate, Nichols never “looked” Black with her green eyes and long, straight brown hair—a far cry from […]

Kimberlee (Kim) Bogen – EIS

Processing reams of paper is no longer the norm when it comes to selling and servicing insurance policies. Call it a new paperless age, given the global acceptance and availability of communication technologies. Insurance companies are increasingly offering a more sophisticated customer experience with the latest digital technologies available to agents, brokers, employers and consumers. […]

Melissa Bert – U.S. Coast Guard

Melissa Bert’s new role requires leadership and perseverance through stormy seas—two values that have been fine-tuned throughout her career. As a U.S. Coast Guard rear admiral whose past posts include southeast Alaska, Miami and Washington, D.C., Bert has earned her sea legs. Even so, upon assuming her duties as judge advocate general and chief counsel, […]

Dustin Van Deman – Hines

Not many 10-year-olds growing up in East Texas commit to becoming a lawyer in elementary school, but young Dustin Van Deman was one of them—and he never deviated from his plan. Growing up in the quiet town of Frankston—population 1,209 and home of Frank Beard, the drummer for ZZ Top—Van Deman says he didn’t come […]

Chris Young – Ironclad Inc.

Between the endless hours of contract review, keeping an eye on the ever-changing regulatory landscape and advising the C-suite and board of directors, the burdens shouldered by today’s corporate counsel can be as daunting as they are dynamic. But with the typical in-house workload having increased by more than 90 percent—at a time when resources […]

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.
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.
