Regina DeIulio – Florida Polytechnic University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

As the proverb goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day—but bricks were laid every hour. While a university campus isn’t quite as large as the capital of Italy, it is like a small city, says Regina DeIulio, who’s been laying legal bricks at Florida Polytechnic University for a decade. Created in 2012 as an independent […]

Roxy Bargoz – Avant

Est. reading time: 5 mins

For a general counsel operating in one of the country’s most demanding industries, the work was about as high stakes as it gets: a protracted legal battle between two Colorado fintech companies (and their respective banking partners) and the state’s attorney general. At the heart of the dispute was whether the plaintiffs, Avant and Marlette […]

Rachel Bays – Honeywell Aerospace Licensing and Working Capital

Est. reading time: 4 mins

From the legal arguments that led to successful appeals of death penalty cases in Missouri, to the export and licensing of aerospace technology, Rachel Bays has researched a lot of laws. But while she’s great at hitting the books, Bays, an assistant general counsel for Honeywell Aerospace’s Licensing and Working Capital unit, likes to see […]

Rekha Hanu – Akorn Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

There may not be a dry eye in the house. At least there may not need to be since a major drugmaker has been denied an attempt to shield its patent for the pricy prescription eye drop Restasis. A very unusual tactic, says Rekha Hanu, the chief intellectual property counsel at Akorn Inc., one of […]

Rebecca Stump – SEI Private Trust Company

Est. reading time: 6 mins

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 […]

Robyn Scott – Fleet Complete

Est. reading time: 5 mins

She has to chuckle when reminded of the many old country songs about truckers playing loose with documentation of driving hours and cargo weight. In trucker’s parlance they were called swindle sheets, abuse of which endangered other motorists while making a mess of the roads. But such dubious recordkeeping may become a thing of the […]

Robbi Nagel – AmTrust Financial Services

Est. reading time: 5 mins

By all accounts, Robbi Nagel’s day begins like any in-house counsel’s might: checking email, planning work between the litany of conference calls and meetings and—most critical of all—that first cup of coffee. But it’s what Nagel toggles to next that lends her role a bit more color (and plenty of entertainment). As she clicks open […]

Robynn Van Patten – Community Medical Centers

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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 […]

Royce Warrick – Solenis

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When Royce Warrick left a longtime position as commercial legal director of a Fortune 100 chemical manufacturer’s multibillion dollar business based in downtown Philadelphia, it was for a more expansive—and maybe more adventurous—role, down the highway in Wilmington, Delaware. For that was where, just days earlier in July 2014, Solenis had sprung from what had […]

Rosanna Marrero Neagle – Nestlé Dreyer’s Ice Cream/Nespresso USA

Est. reading time: 5 mins

By 2009, two years into her role as general counsel for Nestlé Dreyer’s Ice Cream/Nespresso USA, Rosanna Marrero Neagle felt as if things were beginning to settle. The flood of paperwork and internal policy tweaks stemming from the 2006 Dreyer’s acquisition had slowed to a manageable flow; the late hours and weekend work, replaced by […]

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.
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.
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.
