Features Women in Law

Flavia Naves – Velo Payments

Having been among the professional casualties of mergers and acquisitions on different occasions, no one would have faulted Flavia Naves had she stuck with a secure position in the legal department of a large public company. But this past February when Velo Payments, a small but growing Northern California fintech startup, beckoned her to come […]

Jennifer Turner Harrigan – Symphony Talent

Mention a certain, locally based national health and wellness organization to folks in the greater Pittsburgh area, and most of them will know exactly who you’re talking about. The second largest integrated delivery and financing system in the country, the organization employs more than 40,000 people, making it one of the region’s largest employers. Dynamic […]

Judith Schvimmer – Lagunitas Brewing Co.

It is indeed the wild west for the nascent cannabis industry, especially when alcohol is in the mix. A left coast brewery with something of an outlaw heritage would seem right at home. Which seems to describe the Lagunitas Brewing Co. in Petaluma, California. Only what passed for its outlaw days now seems, well, if […]

Divya Mehta – KONE

Getting her foot in the door was Divya Mehta’s first step toward a new job at KONE, allowing this marathoner to run with a new opportunity. Admittedly, Mehta says she wasn’t the ideal candidate for at the $8.9 billion global engineering company that manufactures elevators and escalators in 60 countries worldwide. She had no experience […]

Shelby Angel – Match Group

For Shelby Angel, the lure of the law is in how it allows one to see things from many angles. Indeed, her own career has been a testament to that sense of dynamism, having worked for years as a litigator in the Dallas area and, more recently, as an in-house attorney for Gold’s Gym. For […]

Rebecca Stump – SEI Private Trust Company

While working as an attorney, Rebecca Stump and her husband decided to enter the real estate business on the side by purchasing a multi-unit building. After becoming a mom she and her husband decided to expand the business. It proved to be a bit of a three-ring circus, she says, juggling and responding to the […]

Diana Abril – Ilumno

Growing up in a remote area in Latin America, technologically detached from the world—and where one’s friends and relatives may have never received a formal education—might make getting a college degree out of reach and low on the list of life’s priorities. But underserved populations, historically without access to education, in Latin America have been […]

Brandee Winikoff – Rodan + Fields

Scrolling through the company’s website, the wares that make up Rodan + Fields’ product line—everything from serums and acne lines to anti-aging products and masks—look like any you might find at a high-end department store. The branding is straightforward, too: streamlined, simple, unabashedly confident. They certainly don’t seem like the kinds of products that would […]

Virginia MacSuibhne – Roche Molecular Solutions

Those who know Virginia MacSuibhne understand that she always finds a way—personally or professionally—to get something done. Despite suffering from endometriosis and Hashimoto’s Disease for years—undergoing seven abdominal surgeries in recent memory, missing a kidney and living with chronic pelvic pain—this high-powered attorney at Roche Molecular Solutions says she’s all about finding a solution—and the […]

Jacquie Katzel – PayPal

Sometimes to chase down a dream you have to pack your bags, hop on a plane and fly to a new opportunity. Jacquie Katzel is getting pretty good at that. From escaping political strife in Jamaica as a child—to finding sanctuary in Canada, the United States and the halls of Harvard—she’s found opportunity once again, […]

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.
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.
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.
