Grace Garcia Cooke – Edmonton Public Schools

Small gestures can go a long way towards making someone feel included. For example, pronouncing someone’s name correctly tells them you see and respect them. Too often, though, people try to Anglicize or simplify names they’re not familiar with, Grace Garcia Cooke says. The general counsel for Edmonton Public Schools says this can make people […]

Mike Ervin – Alaris Equity Partners

It’s a unique approach to investing taken by Calgary-based Alaris Equity Partners as it looks south of the Canadian-U.S. border. As Chief Legal Officer Mike Ervin emphasizes, Alaris seeks to be a partner, not a dictator. “No one at Alaris is going to run the various businesses better than the management teams we invest in,” […]

Indra Maharaj

Indra Maharaj once jokingly told her mother that if she ever got a boat, she’d call it “The Winding Path.”  Indeed, her legal career has twisted and turned. Version 1.0 had Maharaj immersed in civil and commercial litigation in Winnipeg, Manitoba, with her eye on the partner track. Version 2.0 involved her moving to Alberta, handling […]

Rafael Vietti da Fonseca – Itaú Unibanco

Despite being an in-house attorney, Rafael Vietti da Fonseca also views his role through an external counsel mindset. To him, this means delivering “the best experience and providing the greatest value to clients in order to get the very next deal.” As Itaú Unibanco’s head of legal for corporate and investment bank and distribution, he […]

Anthony Wilson – Design.ME Hair

Anthony Wilson didn’t go on a shopping trip for healthy and beauty products in Paraguay because he has exotic tastes.  Wilson ventured south, instead, in search of fake products as general counsel for Moroccanoil. He’s also helped set up sting operations in those regions to protect the company’s brands from infringement and counterfeiting. It was […]

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.
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.
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.
