Christina Wahlig – Marathon Health

Christina Wahlig loves the feeling she gets after a run; the adrenaline flowing, the endorphins giving her that unmistakable “runner’s high.” She relishes her daily run, which not only offers inspiring views of Vermont’s scenic landscape, but also a valuable opportunity to recharge. As the general counsel for Marathon Health, Wahlig needs all the energy […]

Lauren Lacey – The Hershey Co.

  She jokes it was a no-brainer to resume her legal career at The Hershey Co., where Lauren Lacey began her second go-around with the famous chocolatier in October 2019. After all, she tells Vanguard on the eve of that anniversary, fringe benefits include Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. But it’s been a sweet deal for […]

David Geiger – Geiger

By imprinting logos on caps, shirts and tote bags, to name just a few of the company’s catalog of items, Geiger has put other companies on view for more than 100 years. “Our tagline is, we provide ‘brandspiration,’—tangible, lasting advertising like promotional products to help our clients build and promote their brand,” General Counsel David […]

Chris Parisi – Armstrong Flooring Inc.

Isabelle Melody – Orolia

It’s all about the resilience, says Isabelle Melody. In a world where phishing no longer involves poles or nets and jamming has nothing to do with breakfast, what’s needed is resilience to combat modern threats ranging from GPS jamming and spoofing to more sophisticated cyberattacks meant to cripple critical infrastructure. That’s what Orolia’s products—such as […]

Chris Young – Omni Bridgeway

High stakes commercial litigation moves slowly—and ever so expensively. It takes time to resolve patent disputes, trade secrets cases, international arbitrations, breach of contract and more. To paraphrase the late Tom Petty, the waiting may be the hardest part. For Chris Young, general counsel for North America with Australia-based litigation funder Omni Bridgeway, patience is […]

Michael MacDougall – EMD Serono

There are nearly one million people living with multiple sclerosis in the U.S. That’s about the same as the number of people living in Austin, Texas, the 11th largest city in the country. It is an unpredictable disease that strikes women two or three times more often than men. The progress, severity and symptoms affect […]

Peter Mastrostefano – PUMA Group

When his parents bought him his first pair of white and blue PUMA suede sneakers with the trademark leaping cat logo on the tongue and heel of the shoes, Peter Mastrostefano was just eight years old. He never imagined that he’d one day become the senior vice president and general counsel for the North American […]

Blaire Bernard – Iora Health

Your physician has made an unsettling diagnosis. It may not be life-threatening, but it needs attention quickly and the care isn’t fully covered by your Medicare insurance plan. The resulting stress—wondering when the bills will arrive, and how to decipher and pay them—is a nerve-wracking experience shared by millions of Americans. Since 2011, Boston-based Iora […]

Teresa Bernstein – ACON Investments

In the world of investments, Teresa Bernstein says navigating high finance is a lot like swimming in open water: You must frequently look up for a landmark to guide you—or else it’s easy to veer off course or get swept away by the current. Bernstein would know. With three titles at the Washington, D.C.-based firm […]

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.
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.
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.
