Thierry Valat De Córdova – Dominion Capital

The first thing you notice about Dominion Capital’s website—and it’s pretty much impossible to miss—is the high-definition video of a snow-covered peak. Occupying the entire homepage, the footage underscores the mountain’s power, stability and permanence. Asked about the significance of the imagery, Thierry Valat De Córdova, Dominion’s general counsel and chief compliance officer, poses a […]

He’s lived in Paris and Brussels and Cambridge and visited countless countries besides. Since 2011, he’s made his career and home in New York City, always in awe of the city’s cultural fusions. And yet, Timothy Hirsch has seldom seen an idea this inclusive—or this trendsetting. It’s called CaaStle, and Hirsch believes it has the […]

The Donohoe Companies Inc.

How does a two-person legal team support one of the Washington D.C. area’s largest and oldest real estate development firms?

While many in-house counsel justify their positions by bringing legal work in-house, thus reducing their outside counsel expenditures, […]

Trying to get regulatory relief on the road

President Trump picked an appropriate locale to renew his infrastructure pitch in early June, the great American city of Cincinnati, where the Brent Spence Bridge over the Ohio River is said to top the list of national infrastructure emergencies. A threat to public safety and economics alike, it’s so deemed by The Hill—that District of […]

Todd Hanna – Sovos Compliance

Thomas G. Siciliano – Municipal Credit Union

Thomas G. Siciliano never expected to see his name in the index of a textbook, and when he joined Municipal Credit Union (MCU) as general counsel at the age of 27, he never expected he’d stay there for 35 years. When he interviewed for the job as general counsel, just a couple years out of […]

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.
