Maria Garton – Signature Aviation

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The private aviation industry has soared for most of COVID-19, many adventurers opting for the convenience and cleanliness of privately owned or chartered jets rather than the delays and discomforts of commercial flights. Signature Aviation thinks the trend will continue, and it’s well positioned to take advantage; the now U.S.-based multinational had focused on becoming […]

Maria Ostrovsky – Deciphera

Est. reading time: 4 mins

If you don’t know what a switch-control kinase inhibitor platform is, you’re probably not alone. Kinases are enzymes that help regulate and orchestrate cellular functions. If they mutate, kinases contribute to the development and progression of diseases including cancer. So cancer drugs known as kinase inhibitors prevent the mutated, or dysregulated, kinase from being active. […]

About 25 years ago, Mallory Levitt attended her first “Star Trek” fan convention. Levitt didn’t go in costume—there were no pointed Vulcan ears or Starfleet uniforms.

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
