Luis-Xavier Hernandez – Unilever

When standing on the tee box before launching golf balls hundreds of yards down the fairway, Luis-Xavier Hernandez stops. He blocks everything out. He concentrates only on his body. Controlling one’s emotions, he explains, can be the difference between the average Saturday hacker and routinely scoring near par, and he sees parallels between his weekends […]

Larry Mitchell – Fiducial

Three times in his career Larry Mitchell has helped restructure and transition companies knowing that he’d need a new job at the end. But, as he notes, he ultimately serves the board, and the board’s agenda takes precedence. Right now, restructuring is not a concern. Mitchell will soon complete his ninth year as general counsel […]

Laurence Kraemer – Northwell Health

It would be easy to say Larry Kraemer has seen better days at Northwell Health, a comprehensive health care system operating in and around New York City. After all, even as Northwell Health grows—in part because of Kraemer’s expertise in tax and corporate finance—it’s also been at the epicenter of COVID-19 pandemic. That made it […]

Laurie Robinson Haden – CCWC

When Laurie Robinson Haden and 10 of her friends gathered around a dinner table in New York City in 2004, they couldn’t have known how much influence these women of color attorneys would one day wield—in the Big Apple and beyond. What was clear was that, in a city of 57,000 practicing attorneys (according to […]

Lee Schneider – Block.one

Many people assume their personal documents and data are safe online, especially if they’re protected by a hospital or bank. Anyone can be hacked, though, and most documents can be duplicated and forged or sold online. Anything from medical records, marriage licenses and diplomas to bank accounts and frequent flyer miles can be copied, ruining […]

Lauren Lacey – The Hershey Co.

She jokes it was a no-brainer to resume her legal career at The Hershey Co., where Lauren Lacey began her second go-around with the famous chocolatier in October 2019. After all, she tells Vanguard on the eve of that anniversary, fringe benefits include Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. But it’s been a sweet deal for all […]

Lara Pitaro Wisch – Major League Baseball

The slap of a fastball into a catcher’s mitt, the thock of a bat connecting with the ball and the roar of the crowd as the ball sails into the stands are things Lara Pitaro Wisch has long loved. And though her love of the game has never waned, she’s hasn’t lost sight of the […]

LeAnn Shelton – Rockwell Group

Want to dance? Take a stroll through the lobby of the new Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, which opened in November 2019. Called the Oculus, the 140-foot-wide, multi-story atrium merges music, lighting, theater, technology and architecture to create an immersive experience. Before you get to the elevators or the casino, the […]

Lynden Renwick – BrightKey

Indispensability is what Lynden Renwick craves. In a world where IT capabilities are constantly in flux and rules differ considerably from country to country, figuring out how to navigate the legal waters can be a constant struggle—particularly for companies on the cutting edge. But where others see a multijurisdictional miasma of compliance, Renwick sees something […]

Lori Buchanan Goldman – Bryn Mawr Trust

With a couple of pending acquisitions and internal build-outs on her to-do list, the workload was heavy in 2017, causing Lori Buchanan Goldman to think creatively in her capacity as legal boss at Bryn Mawr Trust. Head of what was then just a three-member legal team for the regional bank in Greater Philadelphia, Goldman didn’t […]

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.
