Dan Zavodnick – Kedrion Biopharma

For some, finding a career path is a matter of choice. For Dan Zavodnick, it was more a matter of circumstance and necessity. In October of 2008, one year after landing at a prominent New Jersey law firm, Zavodnick was laid off, along with the firm’s other first-year associates, victims of the country’s deepening recession. […]

Dan Anixt – Right Sourcing Solutions/R$2

It goes on day in, day out, at companies big and small across the globe: employees are hammering out contracts and agreements, closing deals, signing on dotted lines. But think about it, says Dan Anixt: With staff turnover, hectic schedules, employee and management disconnect, and just the sheer number of contracts and agreements at any […]

Daniel Duval – Jefferies Finance

For Daniel Duval, it felt like an auspicious new beginning. It was the summer of 2008, and the recently married 30-year-old had just been named senior counsel and vice president for Jefferies Finance, a young, but growing, commercial finance firm a stone’s throw from his former office. As the organization’s sole in-house lawyer, Duval knew […]

Dickens Mathieu – Trinity College

In the spring of 2004, as he prepared for trial representing the federal government in a drug-trafficking case—one he knew “wouldn’t make a dent” in the volume of illegal drugs coming into the U.S.—Dickens Mathieu took a break from the wiretap transcripts to check his email. There, near the top of his inbox, one subject […]

David Foster – National Basketball Players Association

When you’re prosecuting organized crime rings by your mid-30s, representing one of the most visible districts of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, it’s worth wondering how much higher the lawyer’s ceiling can get—let alone the daily adrenaline rush. Fearing his career might never split from its current track, David Foster did what any hungry young lawyer […]

David O’Connor – QVC

When David O’Connor talks about his career as an in-house lawyer, it’s only a matter of time before one of his favorite sayings comes to the fore: Leaders eat last. That said, he’s helped put plenty on the table for all to enjoy, in his capacity as a vice president and U.S. general counsel of […]

Depth, substance and professionalism always surface

When VHB was looking for a deputy general counsel in 2008, someone it could groom for the top spot, it emphasized a technical background. Someone well-versed in civil engineering might have been ideal. That wasn’t quite Khristopher M. Gregoire’s specialty, but one might have thought he was overqualified. For prior to graduating from the University […]

David Koshers – Progressive Credit Union

For decades, only cab drivers who purchased taxi medallions from their municipality were allowed to pick up passengers on the street. In 2013, New York City auctioned medallions for as much as $1.26 million; the city auctioned 200 medallions for $230 million that year. Now, with ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft, nearly anyone with […]

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.
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.
