Features Women in Law

Tammy Brandt – Dreamscape Immersive

With her crew’s interplanetary spacecraft safely landed, Tammy Brandt grabs a flashlight and points it towards the strange flora in front of her. A friendly-seeming amphibian—a kind of cat-frog hybrid—emerges from the shadows. Minutes later, a herd of massive dinosaurs passes by in the distance, right before a terrifying, toothed-and-clawed creature, eyes aglow and eager […]

Lily Tsen – Amcor Flexibles Asia Pacific

Lily Tsen was drawn to medicine. Or so she thought. Tsen chuckles while recalling how she tortured herself with math and science as a University of Melbourne undergrad, while others recognized her potential in law, commerce and anthropology. Not too many years later, the woman who became the first general counsel for packaging giant Amcor […]

Lori Burrows – Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation

As a young girl growing up in a working-class home outside of Little Rock, Arkansas, Lori Burrows’ parents imbued her with a single, deeply-held belief: If you’ve been given much in life, you should give back even more. The words clearly stuck. From spending more than two years in the Peace Corps to a post-college […]

Debbie Long – Protective Life Corporation

As she stared out at the sea of caps and gowns that made up the 2017 graduating class of the University of Alabama School of Law, Debbie Long wasn’t sure if what she was about to say would be remembered. After all, how many of us can recall what was said at our graduation? “I’ve […]

Stacey Hanna – Lonza

Throughout her first 17 years in the legal world, Stacey Hanna had been no stranger to the interview process. If anything, given her growing roles and titles, she’d become something of an ace. Only, it’s a bit different when the person across the desk has to decide not whether to hire you, but whether to […]

Sabiha Chunawala – Juniper Networks Inc.

In retrospect it was a lucky break. Fresh out of the University of Miami School of Law in 1997, with a rich background in criminal justice, Sabiha Chunawala expected to be a prosecutor in Northern California, only to find that the district attorneys’ offices had a hiring freeze with no thaw imminent. But Chunawala, a […]

Melinda Sheehee – Diversified Communications

Her business card might read general counsel and vice president of a Maine-based international multimedia heavyweight, but Melinda Sheehee mostly sees herself as a project manager. It was among her strong points when she was in charge of real estate development for Hannaford Brothers for most of the 2000s, with the grocery chain in full […]

Logan Marcus – Appreciation Financial

By the start of 2015, after a full month of 12-hour day grinds and no days off, of sweat-inducing calls and enough motions and summary judgments to anchor an aircraft carrier, all Logan Marcus wanted was to sit on the beach and read a book—any book. That, and a few pages of Indeed.com search results. […]

Adelaida Adames – Philip Morris International DO & Caribbean Markets

Times change for any industry, and Philip Morris International—the world’s most successful cigarette company—has long acknowledged the old axiom about smoking being hazardous to one’s health. It is aiming for a smoke-free future by promoting products such as e-cigarettes and technology that heats but doesn’t burn. That makes it an exciting time for Adelaida Adames, […]

Cathy Mikus – Mercy Health System + St. Mary Medical Center

Even now, more than 20 years later, the memories are vivid and transporting. The overnight shifts that sap you to the core. The frightened families similarly weathered by lack of sleep. Those immense feelings of satisfaction and joy when the miracles of medicine are summoned. Cathy Mikus knows what it means to be a nurse. […]

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.
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.
