John Frates – Stewart Title Insurance Company

When a solar array company was buying a large parcel just north of the New York-Pennsylvania border, there were a slew of complexities to satisfy before the bosses could begin tapping the sun. Just where did the property lines begin and end? Who, if anybody, had mineral rights? Does anyone have rights to the property? […]

Jeffrey Gautsche – MTX Group Inc.

Jeffrey Gautsche jokes that his greatest challenge at MTX Group Inc. is keeping pace with founder Das Nobel’s vision for expansion. The Albany, New York-based salesforce and staffing company is expanding in pockets around the world—earning more in the first quarter of this year than in all of the last. Now with a team 200 […]

Jessica Mastrogiovanni – New York & Company

In the apparel industry, ideas are a company’s lifeblood. Fresh designs, new fashion lines, trendsetting concepts—businesses have entire teams dedicated to brainstorming the next big thing. With a multitude of ideas, one can imagine the legal touch points are as many and close together as pencil stripes on a blouse. Among them, corporate governance, employment, […]

Joseph Balestrino – Grane Healthcare

With the aging Baby Boomer population and a critical shortage of nurses and other skilled health professionals, Joseph Balestrino sees an impending “tsunami” as he ponders the next chapter for 26 percent of the U.S. population. While not a health care professional himself, he primarily sticks to the law. The general counsel for Grane Healthcare, […]

Jeff Hartwig – Dotdash (formerly About.com)

Never say never to this guy Jeff Hartwig, because he makes a habit out of making the impossible possible. When this former punk rocker got a little tired of the steady diet of music people, endless gigging, and the “scene,” he walked away from a record contract. Intellectually curious, it crossed his mind to become […]

Jennifer Nelson – Prestige Consumer Healthcare Inc.

Securing intellectual properties can be a challenge under almost any conditions. Even more so when the country where a company seeks to operate has little in the way of laws for trademark protection. Such was the case when Prestige Consumer Healthcare Inc. identified Myanmar as one of the so-called Asian tigers and a place where […]

Juan Pablo Malfavon

He’s orchestrated a major spinoff for one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies and navigated complex and evolving regulations for a global leader in the pet and livestock medicine sector, all while building out its Latin American operations. He’s worked for GM, Colgate, Citi and Philip Morris, among others. Now, Juan Pablo Malfavon says he’s […]

Joe Bonassar – Dymax Corporation

Whenever Joe Bonassar finds himself wondering what to work on next, he doesn’t use a fancy project-management platform or iPhone app. Instead, he makes the four-step trek from his desk to the whiteboard at the front of his office. There, neatly drawn in black marker, is a square sectioned into four boxes, each with its […]

Jake Williams – Sportradar

For sports fans around the world, the mobile-phone revolution has ushered in a new age of instant-update convenience. Even if you forgot to DVR the big game, second-by-second stats and scores are never more than a swipe or two away, whether you’re waiting for coffee or headed to a friend’s for dinner—so long as you’re […]

Joe Limone – Noble Americas

Lawyers have their oft-pure stories about how they discovered the legal field: devouring the works of Oliver Wendell Holmes during summer vacation, perhaps, or writing an essay on the humble heroism of Atticus Finch. Joe Limone’s story is far grittier, and involves a Massachusetts subway and a cigarette. During one of his hundreds of hour-long […]

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.
