Features Women in Law

Kamili Moreland – AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah

Flat tire? Dead battery? Overheated engine? Need a tow? Been in an accident? Just call the number on the card and within an hour’s time, one of AAA’s providers will likely be beside your troubled vehicle. Or maybe your house, if it’s been damaged by fire or falling limbs, and you had the foresight to […]

Robynn Van Patten – Community Medical Centers

When Robynn Van Patten decided to take a self-imposed sabbatical and move her family to France, following a succession of heartbreaking losses and years of taxing work, the veteran general counsel did something she’d never done before: she kept the calendar open. Childrearing by day, wine and writing by night, Van Patten tried to put […]

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 […]

Tonya Johannsen – The Beck Group

They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and the 490,000-square-foot Dickie’s Arena in Fort Worth is a towering testament to that refrain. Inspired by the multi-use fieldhouses popular in the early- to mid-20th century, the brick-bound building appears at once well-worn and cutting-edge—fitting for a region that represents both. And yet, the 14,000-seat arena somehow feels […]

Deb Steiner – RR Donnelley & Sons Company (RRD)

Ask Deb Steiner what inspired her to become a lawyer, and you’ll get a response quite different from the range of clichéd answers you’re used to hearing. In fact, she was initially turned off by the idea; a devout Anabaptist, the career path felt contrary to the values she espoused. But she couldn’t shake the […]

Linda Shi – Red Spark

The grind begins at home, scheduling the day’s appointments and following up on overnight emails and requests from international clients across different messaging platforms. Upon arriving at Red Spark’s offices, she’s back to juggling intellectual property (IP) issues—along with contracts and compliance—for one of the company’s flagship marketing platforms, with a chorus of calls and […]

Jessica Y. Camuffo – JPay Inc.

Rare may be the person among us who’s not on a first-name basis with someone incarcerated. At any given moment, there are around 2.3 million Americans being detained in a local, county, state or federal facility. Whether it be for a short stay in jail or a long stretch in prison, some kind of positive […]

Angela Lozano – Title Forward

Anyone who’s been involved in a real estate transaction of any kind knows how cumbersome the process can be. There’s a lot of repetition and duplication, uncertainty and worry, all the way to the final sit-down, signing and transfer of title. But Title Forward—a wholly-owned subsidiary of Redfin—is working to revolutionize the title, escrow and […]

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 […]

Victoria Newman – TMX Finance Family of Companies

Epiphanies can strike at any time: in moments of peace or panic, on a living room recliner or streets half a world away. Victoria Newman’s came right in the middle of a Caesar salad. While attending a conference for general counsels in Naples, Florida, Newman had dinner with a longtime legal head at a Canadian […]

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.
