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 […]

Brian Coate – Hyperion Materials & Technologies

Hyperion Materials & Technologies has been around for a long time, but in the wake of ownership changes it’s looking to write a new chapter as it gives employees a stake in the company. Based in Columbus, Ohio, this global solutions provider found its niche in manufacturing hard and superhard materials, including cemented carbide, industrial […]

Brett Dakin – Child Mind Institute

Depression. Post-traumatic stress disorder. Abuse. Anxiety. Under “normal” circumstances, many of today’s young people struggle with mental health and learning disorders. Now, add to the mix COVID-19, school closures, civil unrest.   It’s a lot for a child to process, says Brett Dakin, general counsel for the Child Mind Institute, noting that the number of […]

Brad Feuer – Barnes & Noble

The chapters that tell the history of Barnes & Noble cover almost 150 years, from the company’s humble roots as the home business of Charles M. Barnes to its emergence as a global retailer under the ownership and leadership of Len Riggio. For the last 20 years, Brad Feuer has been part of that unfolding […]

Brian Baldrate – Raytheon

As a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army, Brian Baldrate commanded his fair share of missions, many involving Abrams tanks—massive machines whose mobilization required impeccable coordination and constant communication. The tactics and terrains may have changed, but for Baldrate, general counsel for Raytheon’s international and Washington, D.C., operations, the aim remains the same: to […]

Bryn Sherman – Offit Kurman

Relationship-building isn’t always a given at major law firms. Attorneys are continuously tasked with moving from one case to the next, so they’re rarely able to offer the full gambit of services or truly gauge the effectiveness of advice rendered. Which is far from ideal, says Bryn Sherman, a principal at Maryland-based Offit Kurman, which […]

Brendan Malley – QBE North America

The very nature of the insurance business is about mitigating the risk of clients, and Brendan Malley takes that approach in his role with the regional division of the Australian-based company that is his sole client. A member of the legal staff at the top 20 global insurer QBE North America since 2011, and senior […]

Brett Pailet – adMarketplace

For in-house attorney Brett Pailet, it’s not a question of if artificial intelligence (AI) will eventually take his job, but when—and how much of it. Rest assured, Pailet isn’t envisioning a brave new world with hyper-intelligent computers taking over a company’s legal department (much less an army of robot lawyers). Rather, he sees technology as […]

Bonnie Huber Porzio – Triumph Construction Corp.

She was just eight years old, but Bonnie Huber Porzio’s first trip to a courtroom in Nassau County, New York, with her grandfather was unforgettable—from being invited “backstage” into the chambers of their family friend who was a judge, to getting to sit on the bench and hold a gavel. There and then she knew […]

Brendan O’Connor – Garrett – Advancing Motion

You could say the spin cycle has turned out more than OK for Brendan O’Connor. Or, to be precise, the spinoff cycle. For most of 2018, O’Connor, then the assistant general counsel of mergers and acquisitions at Honeywell International Inc.’s headquarters in northern New Jersey, was entrusted with fronting the company’s spinning off of its […]

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.
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.
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.
