Dianna DeVore – Inscripta Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

In some afterlife, Dr. David Livingstone might well be nodding in approval of Inscripta Inc.’s lofty agenda. “Feed, fuel and heal the world,” this young biotech proclaims from its headquarters in Boulder, Colorado—an objective similar to what the late missionary martyr undertook in Africa during the 19th century. If Inscripta is to succeed in its […]

Detra Lynn Mills – Round Room LLC

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Detra Lynn Mills is in love with a red brick, century-old former elementary school in Indianapolis, but not because of its artful floor-to-ceiling windows or its placement on the National Register of Historic Places. Instead, it’s what happens inside the repurposed school building at an agency called Coburn Place Safe Haven that caught her attention. […]

Dina Segal

Est. reading time: 4 mins

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 […]

Deb Steiner – RR Donnelley & Sons Company (RRD)

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Ask Deb Steiner what inspired her to become a lawyer, and you’ll get a response quite different from the range of clichéd answers you’re used to hearing. In fact, she was initially turned off by the idea; a devout Anabaptist, the career path felt contrary to the values she espoused. But she couldn’t shake the […]

Deborah Greenberg — Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It was a high-stakes program that Deborah Greenberg’s employer was embarking upon last year, just prior to bringing her aboard as chief legal officer and corporate secretary of the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC). With the backing of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Canada’s self-sustained national housing agency was committing to a 10-year, $40 billion […]

Debbie Long – Protective Life Corporation

Est. reading time: 6 mins

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 […]

Diankha Linear – Convoy Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

“It all centers on endless capacity and zero waste,” Diankha Linear responds when asked how she approaches her new role as general counsel for the Seattle-based tech company Convoy Inc. Conveniently enough, those two ideals also encompass the raison d’être and mission of Convoy, best described as the unique and progressive disrupter of a national […]

DRW

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Patricia Levy is the first to admit that her career moves were not planned, not exactly. Early on, Levy knew she wanted to be a lawyer, and after law school she thought she’d found her place as a corporate attorney in a law firm. Thirty-two years later, giving an interview from her office with DRW, […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
