Features Women in Law

Krishna Walker – CareVet

They’re among the last bastion of independent businesses in the U.S., providing care for four-legged, furry family members in cities, towns and regions large and small. The American Veterinary Medical Association estimated in a 2017 report that of the 28,000 to 32,000 veterinary practices in the U.S., about 3,500 are owned by larger companies. However, […]

Lisa Gasbarre Black – Catholic Charities, Diocese of Cleveland

Being evicted, unemployed, or left hungry are what some Ohio residents faced in the wake of COVID-19. Here to combat the plight of the downtrodden, however, is Catholic Charities Diocese of Cleveland. Founded in 1912, the nonprofit charitable organization in recent times delivered more than 150 services at 60 locations to more than 400,000 individuals […]

Orisia K. Gammell – SAP America

She’s focused her career on trade compliance, and what an evolving subject that’s been. Evolving enough when it just involved movement of physical goods, as it mostly did when Orisia K. Gammell started as an associate at a high-powered law firm in Washington, D.C. How much higher the stakes can be as the global economy […]

Sue-Lynn Noel – Purolator

By the age of 12, Sue-Lynn Noel knew she wanted to pursue a career in law. Turning that vision into reality was a different story. Not only were there no lawyers in her family; none of them had ever gone to college. It was during a work experience class in high school—an internship at a […]

Michelle Howland Zmugg – SpotOn

As Michelle Zmugg joined San Francisco-based SpotOn in September 2020 as its first general counsel, she knew she’d be helping the company progress from a startup to a maturing tech venture. She had the experience in employment law and HR issues a growing company needs, but as SpotOn’s small business payment and management tools are […]

Andrea Andre – Axcess Financial

Consumers beware: COVID-19 has unleashed scam artists preying upon the most economically vulnerable. A couple of federal stimulus checks notwithstanding, many people of modest means remain hard-pressed to scrape together their next rent, car payment, credit card bill or whatever. It’s all the more reason why Andrea Andre is so committed to uphold trust in […]

Angela Borreggine – Allianz Global Investors

Angela Borreggine knows how to make herself heard—it’s hard not to, considering one of her passions is singing with the Cecilia Chorus of New York as well as the Brooklyn Oratory Choir at St. Boniface. But the notes Borreggine hits as chief legal officer at Allianz Global Investors are equally high—and complex. As of November, […]

Paola Monzon-Cheng – Nitto Americas

So, who expected that in January 2020, buying milk or bread would mean being separated from a cashier by sheets of clear protective film? Or that pizza you ordered would be dropped off outside your door as you waved at the delivery driver? Not Paola Monzon-Cheng, though as head of legal for Nitto Americas, she […]

Candice Ciresi – Sezzle

It’s a situation all too familiar to many, especially in these times of record unemployment and economic uncertainty: You need to make purchases but can’t afford to. For millions of Americans, coming up short has become a harsh reality. Credit cards have long been an option for increased spending power, but that’s changing with the […]

Lisa Stephenson – CRST

Hungry truckers. Civil unrest. Forest fires. Derechos, hurricanes and a pandemic. The only thing that might be missing in 2020 are the locusts, but Lisa Stephenson still maintains she’s the luckiest lawyer in Iowa with the best job in the world. As the vice president and general counsel at CRST International—one of the nation’s largest […]

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.
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.
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.
