Alastair Wood – Kindur

It’s rare for a young company’s fourth hire to be its own in-house attorney. Especially so for a start-up, New York City-based Kindur only having commenced operations in late 2017. But the principals weren’t new to this game; collectively they had managed $120 billion over the course of a half-century at previous stops that included […]

Alison Wisniewski – Epiq

More than any contract or services agreement, the most important pact Alison Wisniewski has ever been involved in was the one she made with herself. If she scored at least a 160 on the LSATs, she would leave her paralegal job, along with the acting career she’d dreamed of since childhood and go to law […]

Angela Lozano – Title Forward

Anyone who’s been involved in a real estate transaction of any kind knows how cumbersome the process can be. There’s a lot of repetition and duplication, uncertainty and worry, all the way to the final sit-down, signing and transfer of title. But Title Forward—a wholly-owned subsidiary of Redfin—is working to revolutionize the title, escrow and […]

American Council of Engineering Companies

Design professionals applauded a ruling earlier this year, by the Maryland Court of Appeals, upholding a lower court ruling protecting a company against claims for purely economic damages by a contractor with whom it did not have a contractual agreement. This principle, known as the Economic Loss Rule or the Economic Loss Doctrine, was championed […]

An approach that’s par for any course

As every golfer knows, you’ve got to play by the rules: Where you can drop a second ball after hitting the first into a pond or the woods. How you may address a ball in the bunker. Whether conditions allow for preferred lies. About mulligans: None, at least not while playing for keeps. Joe Nauman […]

Abraham Ronai – Getinge Group

When Abraham Ronai was an undergraduate at Cornell University, he planned on becoming a mechanical engineer, not a lawyer. Then he interned at Pratt & Whitney, a jet engine manufacturer. While Ronai had always been interested in science, he couldn’t see himself working as an engineering manager or spending years constructing a single bolt. Instead, […]

Allison Nagelberg – Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation

On her birthday, Allison Nagelberg asked every employee at Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation to name a charity they wanted to support. Then she donated $100 to each charity. She got the idea from her dad, who was an executive at Prudential Insurance Company for nearly his entire career. On his 60th birthday, he asked […]

Adam Kokas – Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings Inc.

Several years ago, legislation was drafted requiring airlines to install on each aircraft a secondary cockpit door designed to protect pilots from potentially dangerous passengers. For aircraft that carry passengers, it made sense. But newer all-cargo aircraft have open cockpits without doors or bulkheads.  Imposition of a requirement to install “secondary” doors on such aircraft […]

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.
