Paul Uhrig – Bassett Healthcare Network

Compared to working at a startup, being part of a new leadership team at a 100-year-old institution may seem breezy. But there’s a lot to consider—the history and reputation, the staff (some of whom have been there for decades) and the long-standing practices and procedures. But there’s also a benefit to new ways of thinking, […]

David Liebman – Frank Recruitment Group

If it’s 7 a.m., the call must be from Berlin. Or maybe Amsterdam or Barcelona. That’s the way the day flows for David Liebman, the chief legal officer and head of administration for Frank Recruitment Group as it expands all over the world. In fact, the push for IT personnel, especially to staff cloud technologies […]

Jason Pollack – Christie’s

Evening sales at Christie’s in New York City are not to be missed, a highlight of the social calendar where billionaires are ready to raise their paddles and bid on rare and obscure objects—art by DaVinci or Picasso, jewelry, and recently, an artifact from the Jurassic period. But all that changed in 2020 when the […]

Steven Kahaner – Marste & Co. Inc.

While adapting to rural life in the Litchfield Hills area of Connecticut, Steve Kahaner let out an unintelligible shout when he came face to face with large bear in his back yard. No need for translation in that instance, and it was understood well enough to send the bear packing, he jokes. Where Kahaner speaks […]

Owen Taylor – LCH

If he were explaining his niche financial specialty—clearing—to his parents, Owen Taylor would do it like this: “Think of a clearing house like a buffer for the financial markets,” he says. “Banks, rather than interacting with each other, use a clearing house so that if one of them fails, there isn’t a domino rally that […]

Angela Olsen – AquaBounty Technologies Inc.

Angela Olsen isn’t a chef or a food critic, but thanks in part to her Scandinavian heritage, she knows good salmon when she tastes it. General counsel and corporate secretary at AquaBounty Technologies, she is in the middle of an effort to provide a new protein source to a global population projected by the United […]

Catherine Ann Muldoon – BDP International

For more than 200 years, Philadelphia has been nicknamed the City of Brotherly Love, derived from the Ancient Greek words philos and adelphós. At BDP International, a privately owned global logistics provider and supply chain management company, Catherine Ann Muldoon has spent the last 18 years ensuring there’s plenty of love for her sisters in […]

Orisia K. Gammell – SAP America

She’s focused her career on trade compliance, and what an evolving subject that’s been. Evolving enough when it just involved movement of physical goods, as it mostly did when Orisia K. Gammell started as an associate at a high-powered law firm in Washington, D.C. How much higher the stakes can be as the global economy […]

Elicia Pegues Spearman – Quinnipiac University

The highest-ranking security clearances handed out by the U.S. Department of Justice: secret and top secret. Elicia Pegues Spearman has held both. She received top-secret security clearance while working at the FBI. More recently, in her last position, she received secret security clearance at Groton, Connecticut-based General Dynamics Electric Boat, which—among other things—builds nuclear submarines. […]

Daniel Deitch – NFI Industries

Eighteen years ago, Daniel Deitch was deep into plaintiff-sided civil litigation work, most notably handling personal injury cases, plying his trade at a boutique firm in Center City Philadelphia. Already several years into the civil litigation game—which he describes as “nasty and often lacking in basic civility”—Deitch started to question his relationship with the legal […]

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.
