James “Jamie” Wallace – Montauk Energy

It’s abundant, whether captured from decomposing garbage or cows. Harvesting biogas, which is converted into renewable natural gas, or RNG, provides an ever-growing source of energy for electricity and transportation, and it has provided a bounty of legal learning for James “Jamie” Wallace. “In capturing the methane, which is a primary component of biogas, we’re […]

Malik Majeed — PRWT Services Inc. and U.S. Facilities Inc.

One of the things Malik Majeed loves hearing from employees, both past and present, is that PRWT Services Inc. “feels like family.” For Majeed, the president, CEO and general counsel for two Philadelphia-based companies—PRWT Services Inc. (PRWT) and its wholly owned subsidiary, U.S. Facilities Inc. (USF)—it’s a sentiment that’s both heartwarming and validating. One of […]

Joseph Tristine – Precision Resource

We all try to balance work life and home life, and there are those who achieve that balance by bringing family values into the workplace. That’s the approach taken by Joe Tristine, general counsel and chief HR officer for Precision Resource, a privately-owned global manufacturer of metal component parts. “Everything I do is for my […]

LeAnn Shelton – Rockwell Group

Want to dance? Take a stroll through the lobby of the new Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, which opened in November 2019. Called the Oculus, the 140-foot-wide, multi-story atrium merges music, lighting, theater, technology and architecture to create an immersive experience. Before you get to the elevators or the casino, the […]

Lynden Renwick – BrightKey

Indispensability is what Lynden Renwick craves. In a world where IT capabilities are constantly in flux and rules differ considerably from country to country, figuring out how to navigate the legal waters can be a constant struggle—particularly for companies on the cutting edge. But where others see a multijurisdictional miasma of compliance, Renwick sees something […]

Kristen N. Gizzi – ECCO III Enterprises Inc.

For nearly 50 years, ECCO III Enterprises, a family owned business, has been a leading professional construction organization in the New York metropolitan area. As the company excavated, paved and poured concrete for infrastructure projects from overpasses to railroad stations, the Gizzi family simultaneously began to expand their real estate portfolio as ECCO Development LLC.

Steve Kramer – Association of Oil Pipe Lines

Here’s a common misconception about lobbying associations: They have a set number of issues to work on, and they can usually predict what’s next on the horizon for their members. That’s not the case when you are the eyes and ears in Washington for an industry that’s undergone rapid change and now attracts much attention […]

Tronox – Jeffrey N. Neuman

What better way to prove you can swim then diving into a turbulent set of river rapids in early April? Jeff Neuman’s first days at Tronox in April 2018 provided the legal equivalent of such opportunities. No calm lap pools in sight. Leaving Honeywell International after 16 years to take the legal reins of global […]

OHEL Children’s Home and Family Services

In the legal world, negotiating and approving contracts can be much the same whether the contract is for widgets or human services. What the contract accomplishes, however, makes a big difference. The former seals deals, the latter can save lives, and it is the latter that has made Adam Lancer’s work more meaningful to him […]

Jeremy Reich – Unlimited Technology Inc.

How much simpler was the job, Jeremy Reich recalls, in 2014. Fresh out of Rutgers University with a law degree and MBA, the then-26-year-old became a one-man legal team at Unlimited Technology Inc. Five or six years ago, the Nutley, New Jersey-based security company was still focused on providing corporate, institutional and public-sector clients with […]

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.
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.
