Est. reading time: 4 mins

As it lumbers over tarmac at an air base or lands on a 2,000-foot airstrip carved into a mountain range, the sound of Lockheed Martin C-130J’s Super Hercules’ four turbo prop engines is a familiar thrum.  Able to haul nearly 25 tons, the aircraft supplies military and humanitarian operations globally, delivering cargo by parachute or […]

As the proverb goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day—but bricks were laid every hour. While a university campus isn’t quite as large as the capital of Italy, it is like a small city, says Regina Delulio, who’s been laying legal bricks at Florida Polytechnic University for a decade. Created in 2012 as an independent […]

Angela Frazier — Cox Communications

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Sometimes, the road less traveled has the most interesting scenery. Such was certainly the experience of Angela Frazier. While her career path was far from linear, she eventually found her way to her current position as assistant general counsel at Cox Communications, where she’s helping the country’s third largest internet, cable and phone provider keep […]

Hanna Chouest – Norfolk Southern Corp.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Hanna Chouest wasn’t drawn to her career by the far-off sound of a locomotive whistle. Her interest in practicing law in the transportation industry was instead piqued by her father, who made his career in the practice area. Though he focused more on aviation, Chouest says his travel and the legal issues and regulations surrounding […]

Bhavin Patel – Compass Group USA

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.
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.
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.
