April Lindauer – Carta

Landing your dream job during the COVID-19 pandemic isn’t ideal timing. April Lindauer has made the most of it, though, developing her department as the newly promoted general counsel of Carta as of October 2020. Her team has expanded over the past several months and has supported the launch of several new products for startups […]

Angela Lozano – Qualia

“Closing date”–two words that bring joy and anxiety to homebuyers, especially in a booming housing market. Once the documents are gathered and the selling price is agreed on—the waiting begins. Often, it’s weeks before the homebuyers meet to sign reams of paper, finalizing what’s likely the biggest investment they’ll make. It’s a process Angela Lozano […]

Ali Rifai – Zurich Insurance Group

M&A attorneys generally buy and sell operating businesses, but what about attorneys who do the opposite? What about attorneys who specialize in divesting discontinued operations? As general counsel for Zurich Legacy Solutions, Ali Rifai is part of a specialized division within Zurich Insurance Group that sells blocks of business that no longer fit its plans. […]

Adrienne Valencia Garcia – IBM

Active at legal and business get-togethers, Adrienne Valencia Garcia can find her audience initially befuddled with what’s become a favored truism: “More organic food is sold than grown.” By this, she means that produce labeling can be deceptive. It takes many years for an organic farm to be fully operational from seeds to produce to […]

Anuj Gupta – eko

Anuj Gupta has always been interested in film, but when he switched from studying political science to attending film school, he learned more than the craft. There were “no people that looked like me in film school,” he recalls, which reflected what he saw in movies and on television. South Asian characters were few, especially […]

Anderson Chang – Indigo Agriculture

For Anderson Chang, making an impact is what he’s devoted his professional career to. It’s a lofty goal, he says, but whether working on a campaign to reelect a progressive governor or supporting a company trying to make farming more profitable, efficient and sustainable, Chang is passionate about helping the planet. “If we can get […]

Adam Greenberg – Ro

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, every state in the U.S. is rapidly addressing its telehealth laws to expand patient access and adapt to a fast-changing digital health landscape, says Ro General Counsel Adam Greenberg. That’s one of the reasons why Greenberg made sure the New York City-based health care technology company was included […]

Andrew Stillufsen – Roehm America

Here’s the situation. After graduating from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Andrew Stillufsen wasn’t sure what he wanted to do. So, like so many other 20-somethings, he headed to the Jersey Shore and worked at his family’s seafood restaurant, Red’s Lobster Pot. As general manager, he helped serve clams, shrimp, crab cakes and […]

Ashton Valente – Basin Holdings

When this global holding company brings a new entity into the fold, it’s likely to be for the long term. Such was the case in late 2014 when Basin Holdings acquired FHE, a Colorado-based company providing innovative equipment to the energy industry. Ashton Valente, having become Basin’s first general counsel one year earlier, finalized the […]

Alecia Chen – Climb Credit

With nationwide unemployment still high due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are looking to further their education. But as the economy continues to sputter, the cost of higher education remains high, and potential learners struggle to identify which programs will help them improve their skills and career prospects. That’s where Climb Credit hopes to […]

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.
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.
