Betsy Philpott – Washington Nationals

“Next year” has arrived, and while it’s had ups and downs for the Washington Nationals, at least baseball is returning to normal with a 162-game schedule, turnstiles opening to capacity and no more cardboard cutouts as placeholders for fans. An afternoon at Nationals Park is again an event to relish for the team’s passionate general […]

Barbara Ruskin – Silence Therapeutics

Sometimes taking the path you never expected can bring you exactly where you were meant to be. Such was the case for Barbara Ruskin, who after reading an article in Scientific American, signed up for every neuroscience class she could in college.

Beth Kinsley – Northland Investment

“Do you give up when things get hard?” Beth Kinsley distinctly remembers the question posed by her Colby College advisor sophomore year when she was about to drop her microeconomics course due to an illness. As it turns out, she didn’t drop that course. In fact, she embraced economics as her minor. And her advisor’s […]

Bill Carey – TIAA Bank and TIAA Commercial Finance Inc.

Replacing the Tappan Zee Bridge, which spans the Hudson River north of New York City, presented a dramatic tableau as the new bridge rose above the river just next to the one it would take the place of. Given traffic conditions in the tri-state area, lots of drivers on Interstate 287 had time to marvel […]

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.

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
