Dante Bradley – Volaris Group

At the time, more than a decade before the arrival of COVID-19 forced remote work on businesses, it was a novel idea. The Virtual Law Office, begun in 2010, was an entirely remote business. As its founder and sole proprietor, Dante Bradley, explains, it was a small firm that offered typical legal services, but it […]

Don Goebel – Maxim Crane Works LP

This was no ordinary request for help with heavy lifting. In September 2012, Maxim Crane Works was called by United Space Alliance, a NASA contractor. The Space Shuttle Endeavour was scheduled to arrive at LAX Airport, and United Space Alliance needed it lifted from the jumbo jet carrying it and placed on a trailer for […]

Danielle Sheer – Bottomline Technologies

More than 10 years ago, Danielle Sheer took a contemplative walk from her midtown Manhattan office back to her Upper West Side apartment. As an attorney at a big-city firm, she’d just finished helping a company through an acquisition and realized she had no practical reason to stay in touch with her clients. “I had […]

David Liebman – Frank Recruitment Group

If it’s 7 a.m., the call must be from Berlin. Or maybe Amsterdam or Barcelona. That’s the way the day flows for David Liebman, the chief legal officer and head of administration for Frank Recruitment Group as it expands all over the world. In fact, the push for IT personnel, especially to staff cloud technologies […]

Daniel Deitch – NFI Industries

Eighteen years ago, Daniel Deitch was deep into plaintiff-sided civil litigation work, most notably handling personal injury cases, plying his trade at a boutique firm in Center City Philadelphia. Already several years into the civil litigation game—which he describes as “nasty and often lacking in basic civility”—Deitch started to question his relationship with the legal […]

Duncan MacKay – Eversource Energy

Thirty years ago, if a power line owned by a utility fell on someone’s house or if a dispute arose with a supplier of critical energy equipment or services, it would’ve tied up the company’s legal team in phone calls, meetings, negotiations and litigation over a number of years. Countless outside attorneys would’ve been brought […]

David Geiger – Geiger

By imprinting logos on caps, shirts and tote bags, to name just a few of the company’s catalog of items, Geiger has put other companies on view for more than 100 years. “Our tagline is, we provide ‘brandspiration,’—tangible, lasting advertising like promotional products to help our clients build and promote their brand,” General Counsel David […]

Daniel Podhaskie – General Counsel

David Goldwin – UATP

Imagine you are a Bulgarian citizen looking to book a flight to Texas. Going online to get your ticket electronically, you hope the airline website will allow you to pay in your native Bulgarian levs. And … it does. For that, you can thank UATP and its Chief Legal Officer David Goldwin. Based in Washington, […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
