Rebecca Stump – SEI Private Trust Company

While working as an attorney, Rebecca Stump and her husband decided to enter the real estate business on the side by purchasing a multi-unit building. After becoming a mom she and her husband decided to expand the business. It proved to be a bit of a three-ring circus, she says, juggling and responding to the […]

Randy Noe – Norfolk Southern

Like so many federal laws, the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008 was devised with the best of intentions: to prevent certain types of train collisions, derailments and other incidents by requiring all Class I railroads to implement a new safety technology system known as positive train control, or PTC. But as often happens with […]

Robbi Nagel – AmTrust Financial Services

By all accounts, Robbi Nagel’s day begins like any in-house counsel’s might: checking email, planning work between the litany of conference calls and meetings and—most critical of all—that first cup of coffee. But it’s what Nagel toggles to next that lends her role a bit more color (and plenty of entertainment). As she clicks open […]

Romy Horn – W2O

Like the digs of their C-suite neighbors, every general counsel’s office has its visual centerpieces—items such as diplomas on the wall or leather bound books meant to capture the visitor’s attention or even show off. Romy Horn hopes you notice the bowl of candy on her desk. From Tootsie Rolls to Jolly Ranchers, the dish […]

Royce Warrick – Solenis

When Royce Warrick left a longtime position as commercial legal director of a Fortune 100 chemical manufacturer’s multibillion dollar business based in downtown Philadelphia, it was for a more expansive—and maybe more adventurous—role, down the highway in Wilmington, Delaware. For that was where, just days earlier in July 2014, Solenis had sprung from what had […]

R. Scott Mahoney — AVANGRID

We tend to take utilities—particularly electricity—for granted: We flip a switch and, so long as we keep our bills up to date, expect the lights to come on. AVANGRID, for its part, is dedicated to keeping things illuminated—and doing so in increasingly efficient ways. One of the country’s largest energy providers, with more than $32 […]

Ron Palmese – Shake Shack

Like many young lawyers in firms, Ron Palmese was mindful of his professional growth being limited by having to concentrate on a specific area of practice and thus not being exposed to the big picture for a client. Much as he enjoyed transactional law, Palmese didn’t feel satisfied enough with his level of involvement in […]

Randy Pritzker – Wolf, Greenfield & Sacks P.C.

From self-driving cars to glasses that can translate street signs in foreign countries, technology is evolving in ways that often exceed our ability to grasp it. That presents an unenviable challenge for the thousands of intellectual property (IP) lawyers tasked with protecting the conceptual seeds of those technologies—computer code, proprietary designs, chemical compounds and the […]

Robin Smith – LEGO Systems Inc.

Little children worldwide are finding that playing with LEGO bricks engages both their brains and hands in ways that their video games will not, and the international toymaker could not agree more. That was among the reasons that Robin Smith, the Americas vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary, found herself in Shanghai in late […]

Robert Cordy

The news from Turkey is upsetting—an apparent democracy turned police state under the iron fist of a president turned sultan reincarnate—and it causes personal anguish for Robert J. Cordy. A former associate justice on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court (SJC), who returned to private practice last year, Cordy has for many years been active on […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
