Diane Hornquist – Hunt Realty Investments, Inc.

The age-old adage advises us—businesses or individuals—to consider three important aspects of real estate before investing: location, location and location. However, as Diane Hornquist can attest, location is one piece of the complex real estate investment puzzle. Aspects such as cost and contracts, as well as wildcards—like, say, a global pandemic—all need to be considered. […]

David Gonzales – Supermercado El Rancho

There’s a special feeling when you walk into a Supermercado El Rancho, the rapidly expanding Mexican supermarket chain with a growing presence in Texas and likely soon elsewhere. Call it a vibe that transcends the festive décor and eclectic product lines. Clearly, this isn’t your parents’ standard Kroger or Publix, says Chief Legal Counsel and […]

Darin Reber – Forever

If in every crisis there’s opportunity, the reverse may also hold true. Thus, the need to minimize crises and maximize opportunities. Darin Reber aims to do just that while overseeing legal and compliance at Forever, a very bifurcated company based in Scottsdale, Arizona. Its divisions: Forever Living Products International LLC, a multi-level international marketing operation, […]

Dennis Reinhold – Securus Technologies

If you’ve ever watched “Orange is the New Black,” “Oz,” “The Shawshank Redemption,” or any of these TV shows and movies about life behind bars, you know that it’s no “fairy tale world”—or so the ever-omniscient Morgan Freeman reflects in the latter adaptation of the Stephen King novella. And when people are released from correctional […]

Dustin Van Deman – Hines

Not many 10-year-olds growing up in East Texas commit to becoming a lawyer in elementary school, but young Dustin Van Deman was one of them—and he never deviated from his plan. Growing up in the quiet town of Frankston—population 1,209 and home of Frank Beard, the drummer for ZZ Top—Van Deman says he didn’t come […]

David Rose – ProPath

It’s called PAMA, as in the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, but may entail unintended consequences. For while the 2014 law seeks to prevent cuts to the federal insurance program for senior citizens and some of the disabled, it means lower reimbursement rates for some of the most cost-efficient clinics so necessary in […]

David Wheeler – BBA Aviation

By all accounts, David Wheeler had it made. Five years after being named senior counsel for General Electric’s (GE) Cincinnati-based aviation division, Wheeler was in a job he loved, working with people he respected, for a company imbued with influence and pride. Still, he couldn’t shake the feeling something was amiss. That for all the […]

David Kuo – Applied Optoelectronics Inc.

Beginning as a startup company nearly 20 years ago, Applied Optoelectronics Inc. (AOI), specializes in manufacturing fiber optic networking products and technologies used in cable television broadband, internet data centers and fiber to the home markets. After the company acquired subsidiaries and operations in Asia in 2006, AOI’s general counsel at the time was looking […]

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.
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.
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.
