Andrea Halverson Harper – Pepco Holdings

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Her recent reunion at the University of Virginia School of Law was a joyous occasion with midcareer attorneys basking in the Southern charm of Charlottesville. The all-nighters, the moot courts, the paper chases of decades ago, the brushing up on Latin—it all seemed worth it. Maybe even more so for Andrea Halverson Harper, a proud […]

Aliya Haider – Beacon Platform

Est. reading time: 4 mins

In 2007, Aliya Haider had a choice to make: become a law professor at New York University or join J.P. Morgan, where she would become a divisional general counsel for the global corporate bank.

Aileen Schwartz – Hill International

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Aileen Schwartz was in kindergarten in Maryland when her teacher said she’d make “a good Philadelphia lawyer.” The comment was unexpected, and Schwartz recalls her parents didn’t know what to make of it. However, it was meant as a compliment, as Philadelphia lawyers had a long tradition as the best trained in law and rhetoric […]

Adrienne Hollander – American Regent

Est. reading time: 5 mins

In 2012, Adrienne Hollander’s resilience and grit were unexpectedly tested. She gave birth on Tuesday and went on maternity leave—only to find out on Friday that the firm employing her for the last four years had closed its doors. She’d been with Dewey & LeBoeuf since 2007, beginning first at Dewey Ballentine as a summer […]

Amiel Gross – The Center for Breakthrough Medicines

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Formerly Discovery Labs, it’s a contract development and manufacturing organization, or CDMO, that partners with advanced therapy companies to help scientists streamline product […]

Anjali Jesseramsing – American Association for Justice

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When someone clicks “accept all terms and conditions,” they often don’t know what they’re agreeing to. As a result, people sometimes sign away their right to sue a company even though it might be in their best interest. At the American Association for Justice, General Counsel Anjali Jesseramsing is fighting to protect this right, which […]

Allison Levy – Flight Centre Travel Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s been almost 50 years since two guys bought a double-decker bus and set off to tour Spain, Portugal and Morocco under the name Topdeck Travel. It was an offbeat approach, but then the ‘70s were an offbeat decade, and the company proved a big hit for its founders, Graham “Skroo” Turner (nicknamed for a […]

Angela Lozano – Qualia

Est. reading time: 4 mins

“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 […]

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.
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.
