Casey Schwab – NFL Players Inc.

To borrow a football term, this past spring the U.S. Supreme Court sacked the so-called Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 that limited sports wagering—well, at least the legal kind—to Nevada, Delaware, Oregon and Montana. But at NFL Players Inc., the ruling caught no one by surprise; least of all Casey Schwab who, […]

Nicole Liebman – WithumSmith+Brown

Whenever Nicole Liebman is running low on dinner party small talk, she can always recount the time she was flown business class to London for the deposition of a very well-known singer on tour, only to be stood up. Even the more “boring” details are sure to send eyebrows rising. About how she represented the […]

Vincent Castiglione

For Vincent Castiglione, work and winemaking—two lifelong passions—have much in common. Chief among them is the notion that, no matter how diligent you are, the results are out of your hands. Environmental factors, you might call them. In the case of Castiglione, among these outside forces was the sale of his most recent employer, Nautica—the […]

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 […]

Christine Mott – International Council of Shopping Centers

Every sentence, reference and citation was checked—twice, three times, maybe four. To the unapprised, what Christine Mott was working on, toggling between drafts, research data, policy statements, input from colleagues and her computer screen, might have seemed mundane. But for Mott, general counsel of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), a global trade organization […]

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 […]

Jonathan Paull – Dialyze Direct

He remembers the moment the job chose him. During a whirlwind trip to New York City and a one-day meeting that became Jonathan Paull’s de-facto job interview, the company’s chairman and founder, Henry Kauftheil, confided in Paull the motivation behind the new venture. “All of my businesses have to address two questions,” Kauftheil said. “And […]

Lian Duan – China Merchants Bank New York Branch

Recent economic tensions between the U.S. and China aren’t exactly brimming with silver linings. With billions of dollars in new tariffs in the works and diplomatic relationships seemingly being set back for years, the dust has yet to settle. As of April, you could even say things were still blowing up. But for the embattled […]

Will Payne – William Grant & Sons Inc.

Well-versed in the liquor laws of his native Scotland and the Old World in general, Will Payne had some fast learning to do when his employer, the venerable Scottish distillers William Grant & Sons, deployed him to New York City in 2016 to be interim general counsel of their American operations. “The United States is […]

Jonathan Wright – QPharma, Inc.

For Jonathan Wright, faith and family have always come first. Just as it did for his father and grandfather—preachers at Richmond, Virginia’s Church of God in Christ—who ingrained in their beloved son a reverence for the power of good deeds. Where does work fit in? If you ask Wright, the two worlds of work and […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
