Features Women in Law

Jenny Kim – Koch Industries

With 7.4 million unfilled jobs in America, Jenny Kim of Koch Industries is working to get one of the nation’s most marginalized populations, people with nonviolent criminal convictions, to fill them. But, she’s quick to say, this project isn’t for charity; it is a mutually beneficial second chance. “It is about businesses making economic decisions […]

Amanda Matchett – Infor

Amanda Matchett says her career trajectory may differ from that of others coming right out of law school, but the path she has taken into the technology field is one that is open to diversity. “The tech world has great opportunities for women of color as a career option,” she says. Infor is a New […]

Karen Bechtold – Teva Pharmaceuticals

Pushing the boundaries of where science meets law makes for some interesting days for patent attorney Karen Bechtold at Teva Pharmaceuticals. Take, for example, one of Teva’s applications tentatively approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Parkinson’s Disease. It details a system for delivering a generic medication through the skin rather than by […]

Christa Johnson – DHL Global Business Services

Christa Johnson vividly remembers her first human resources class at Cornell University. Taught by her passionate professor Florence Berger, it completely drew her in. Five years after graduation and inspired by an internship at the University of Denver Career Center as part of her masters program, Johnson found herself working in human resources at a […]

Victoria Labriola — American Renal Associates

When a dialysis patient, who happened to be a veteran, was repeatedly left stranded at a clinic after his exhausting treatments, the manager was at a loss about what to do and turned to Victoria Labriola for help. The goal was to make sure this patient would no longer be left behind and could get […]

Antigone Davoulas – Shake Collaboration LLC and Shake Extractions LLC

The story started out on a quiet southern afternoon, Antigone Davoulas says, when three women met up at a local Proposition 7 campaign event in Arkansas to collaborate over crawfish. But they weren’t swapping recipes, the general counsel at Shake Collaboration remembers. They were talking about cannabis and hemp—even though it wasn’t “that” kind of […]

Dina Segal

When Dina Segal’s son was three and wondering why his mother wasn’t home one particular day, he approached his father with the question: “Why does mommy work all the time?” Segal’s husband responded: “Mommy goes to work because she helps people solve problems; she helps make the world a better place.” Those words stuck with […]

Lindsay Thomas – Tessemae’s

When you’re a newly minted general counsel, there’s often immediate pressure to help take the company to the next level—to not merely facilitate the company’s growth but accelerate it. Truth be told, when Thomas joined organic salad dressings and condiments purveyor Tessemae’s in early 2017, she had to do the opposite: rein things in. “I […]

Kelly Koster – Pride Global

On the legislative and regulatory fronts, few matters change faster than labor law, Kelly Koster muses from her office at Pride Global, a company that last summer entrusted her with, among other duties, keeping abreast of changes nationwide and sometimes abroad. For Pride Global is the employer of record for thousands of temporary workers provided […]

Angela Tyczkowski – Marco Technologies

There has been just too much growth for Angela Tyczkowski to personally quarterback all acquisition matters in her capacity as general counsel for Marco Technologies. More than 20 since she accepted the challenge of starting an in-house legal department for the St. Cloud, Minnesota-based business-to-business technology provider in 2012. The pace has only picked up, […]

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.
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.
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.
