Ethan Weitzman – HIDTA

In the Washington, D.C., area, Ethan Weitzman, fights the war on drugs in his own backyard, but he’s not a cop or a first responder. A Baltimore native, he’s chief regulatory compliance officer and general counsel for the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, or HIDTA, which coordinates federal, state and local drug interdiction efforts […]

Erik Fargo – Alpha Capital Partners LLC

A 2017 change to the U.S. tax code—much debated, much discussed, still being understood—has opened the way for what could be billions of dollars in investment in what are known as opportunity zones. Spread throughout the U.S., the zones can gain the designation if the poverty rate is at least 20 percent and median annual […]

Eileen Simon – Mastercard

Heads down, earbuds in, fingers forever scrolling the latest story or social media feed, our cellphones have become the most powerful tools in our daily lives—even an extension of ourselves. But getting our phones to recognize us as individuals? Until recently, that was the stuff of science fiction. According to one of its top attorneys, […]

Eric Rubenstein – Nielsen

Eric Rubenstein can regale listeners with plenty of experiences afforded by his job: deliberating with a Vietnamese labor official against the backdrop of an enormous portrait of Communist revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh; making government officials in China laugh with his rudimentary knowledge of Mandarin; taking his newborn son for a passport photo at two […]

Ernest Newborn – USI Insurance Services

In 1950, at a time when many African-Americans faced near-impenetrable glass ceilings, a young mail clerk from northwest Ohio began a climb that would sail clear through the roof—and the generations. From steel-factory basement to general counsel corner office to a glowing profile in “Ebony Magazine,” the legacy of Clarence L. Robinson is steeped in […]

Elevating legal at the speed of technology

Manhattan’s minimalist, all-glass, 978-foot-tall 4 World Trade Center is outstanding in its own right, but for many, the building’s elevators steal the show. Imagine this: you enter a building, tap your ID card on a turnstile and as it opens, it tells you which of 34 elevators to get in. An algorithm has determined which […]

Ever a positive charge at AOL

When Julie Jacobs joined the legal staff of America Online, better known as AOL, in 2000, the internet pioneer seemed in need of the kind of jolt that an enthusiastic tech- and business-savvy person could offer. Seventeen years later, as executive vice president and general counsel, Jacobs seems to have more than justified the faith […]

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.
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.
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.
