Charles Barber – George Washington University

Real estate is all about location. Still, being just a few blocks from the White House comes with as many challenges as it does opportunities. As interim vice president and general counsel for George Washington University, Charles Barber navigates strict district regulations and zoning policies as he helps the university grow. The university has employed […]

Carmine D’Alessandro – Chesapeake Employers Insurance

Formerly a state agency in Maryland, Chesapeake Employers Insurance started becoming a private, nonprofit and nonstock insurance carrier in 2013. That was during the run-up to what’s since been a most challenging time. First there was the nationwide opioid crisis that had the company—Chesapeake Employers for short—immersed in the national debate over what protocols should […]

Colman Ragan – Teva Pharmaceuticals

It’s the legal equivalent of taking the field at Yankee Stadium or the stage at the Met, and Colman Ragan had a front row seat. Though not the lead counsel for Teva Pharmaceuticals, he helped draft the argument given before the U.S. Supreme Court in Helsinn Healthcare S.A. v. Teva Pharmaceuticals USA Inc. “I was […]

Catherine Ann Muldoon – BDP International

For more than 200 years, Philadelphia has been nicknamed the City of Brotherly Love, derived from the Ancient Greek words philos and adelphós. At BDP International, a privately owned global logistics provider and supply chain management company, Catherine Ann Muldoon has spent the last 18 years ensuring there’s plenty of love for her sisters in […]

Christina Wahlig – Marathon Health

Christina Wahlig loves the feeling she gets after a run; the adrenaline flowing, the endorphins giving her that unmistakable “runner’s high.” She relishes her daily run, which not only offers inspiring views of Vermont’s scenic landscape, but also a valuable opportunity to recharge. As the general counsel for Marathon Health, Wahlig needs all the energy […]

Chris Parisi – Armstrong Flooring Inc.

Chris Parisi says it’s important to pay attention to what you’re walking on, or else you may lose your footing—and he’s not just talking about flooring.

Chris Young – Omni Bridgeway

High stakes commercial litigation moves slowly—and ever so expensively. It takes time to resolve patent disputes, trade secrets cases, international arbitrations, breach of contract and more. To paraphrase the late Tom Petty, the waiting may be the hardest part. For Chris Young, general counsel for North America with Australia-based litigation funder Omni Bridgeway, patience is […]

Cheree Johnson ‒ McCormick & Company

It started as a stabbing chest pain that kept Cheree Johnson from falling asleep. As a high-powered attorney on the eve of giving a big presentation, she chalked it up to stress, or maybe even nerves. She never guessed she would be 30 minutes away from dying—and leaving behind a husband and two young children. […]

Courtney Dutter – iCIMS

How the recruiting, hiring and promotions processes have evolved since Courtney Dutter became a one-woman legal staff at iCIMS in early 2010—for a short while, anyway. Then, a young Seton Hall University School of Law grad and research fellow, Dutter had been doing freelance contractual work during the Great Recession when she became aware of […]

Christopher Reid Smith – BlueCrest

He came aboard at an exciting time, Christopher Reid Smith bringing his mix of legal and business acumen to BlueCrest last March, less than a year after the former Pitney Bowes division had been acquired by Platinum Equity and rebranded. BlueCrest’s stock-in-trade being the latest in document messaging technologies for the public and private sectors, […]

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.
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.
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.
