Ryan Crozier – Genesis HealthCare Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

He always enjoyed litigation, Ryan Crozier being well-prepared and convincingly framing his arguments. But there also was the pressure to rack up the annual 2,000 or so billable hours that private practice expects of an associate. If only he could focus on the other half of the equation. That he has for most of his […]

Richard Laws – Northwest Bank

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The past year or so has been full of the unexpected, and the winds of change also swept across Northwest Bank nestled near Lake Erie and the Allegheny Mountains. While the original 1896 bank building is still located in Warren, Pennsylvania, last year Northwest moved its holding company headquarters and several key executives to Columbus, […]

Robin Ricketts – Lockheed Martin Space

Est. reading time: 5 mins

For Robin Ricketts, there’s nothing quite like sitting at the console of mission control during a space launch. There’s the countdown, then the call for the ignition, and finally the sonic rumble in her bones as the engines erupt and the rocket flies into the stratosphere, leaving a billowing contrail of water vapor in its […]

Regina McGregor – Cannistraro

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Ross Epstein – NFP

Est. reading time: 5 mins

From the time he could barely see over the counter at his father’s hardware store in New Jersey, Ross Epstein remembers working with customers, learning the joys and pains of running a small business.

Richard Trumka Jr. – U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform, Economic and Consumer Policy Subcommittee

Est. reading time: 5 mins

While it can be an uphill endeavor, at least there’s job security when one opts for a career in consumer protection, Richard Trumka Jr. tells Vanguard with what sounds like a battle-scarred chuckle. The work goes on and on … and on. “There’s always some company taking advantage of the consumer,” says the 36-year-old general […]

Rishi Nangia – Sparkfund

Est. reading time: 4 mins

After he graduated with degrees in biology and psychology from George Washington University—and with a master’s in public health focusing on epidemiology from Emory University—Rishi Nangia took the next logical step: he applied to medical schools.

Testimonials

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.
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.
