Amer Moorhead – Tradeshift

Amer Moorhead’s extracurricular activity has something in common with his professional life. To a point, that is. You see, the 51-year-old man is an obsessive marathon runner, albeit one who’s been advised by two surgeons that his pavement-pounding days are slowing down. It seems that 67 marathons—and the training that went into each—have necessitated ACL, […]

Angela Petrucci – NBH Bank

In the four and a half years since Angela Petrucci joined Denver-based NBH Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Bank Holdings Corp., the organization has surpassed a quarry’s worth of milestones. It established itself as a publicly-traded company. It converted to a Colorado state-chartered bank in 2016. It acquired two banks in 2017. It refined […]

Serge Sinanian – Sinanian Development Inc.

Details, details, details—with a potential deal-breaking devil lurking in each. Such is often the case when a company takes on design-build responsibilities for a massive public sector project. Take the Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies, a magnet public school in the Los Angeles County community of Reseda. Ranked among the nation’s best and most […]

Hasani Caraway – Zendesk

We’ve all been there, in that anxious state of online order limbo, waiting for the laptop charger or fancy pair of shoes we bought to arrive at our doorstep. When we call to check on the order with customer service, another hurdle appears: repeating our tale of woe to one customer service agent after another […]

Karina Tiwana – ALE USA Inc.

There’s a lot Karina Tiwana knows about practicing law, and it’s just as much a passion for her to pass knowledge on. With more than two decades of experience with tech companies, Tiwana’s mastery of legal affairs such as contracts, intellectual property, privacy protections and data security are well established. For more than five years, […]

Nicole Macarchuk – Angel Island Capital

Bigger isn’t always better. Need proof? Look no further than Nicole Macarchuk and the team at Angel Island Capital (AIC) in San Francisco. Named for one of the Bay Area’s most treasured landmarks, the alternative investment firm doesn’t boast quite the assets of its more seasoned rivals. But that’s not stopping the firm from forging […]

David Martinez – Electus

Once upon a time, people who asked, “what’s on TV tonight?” could expect a simple answer. People may still settle down to watch their favorite show on network TV. But it’s just as likely the person next to you on the bus or sipping that latte is catching up by phone or tablet, snatching a […]

David Phillips – Directly

“You’ve got mail!” It was the dawn of the internet, and America Online held nearly all online consumer traffic thanks in part to that magical mailman’s voice. But fast-moving digital technology was about to run away from the law, owing to an inferno of legal cases sparked by unclear rules on intellectual property, copyright infringement, […]

Ashianna Esmail – Flexport

It’s an industry ripe for disruption, the age-old process of moving goods from one locale to another. Yet despite the technological revolutions happening around it,  international shipping and logistics haven’t changed as much as one might expect, says Ashianna Esmail, who is in a position to effect some long-overdue modernization at Flexport. A fast-growing global […]

Bill Burding – Orange Coast Title

Homebuying. It’s a process that ranks as one of the most important purchases people make in their lives, and one that can be fraught with difficulty. Bill Burding, general counsel for Orange Coast Title in Santa Ana, never loses site of that event’s significance and what it can mean to a family—even if he does […]

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.
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.
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.
