Alf W. Brandt – California State Assembly

Water—it’s an issue that can be all-consuming for a lawyer, and for much of Alf W. Brandt’s career it seemed that way. Some geo-pundits believe the next major war will be fought over water, not oil. At the very least, its use or misuse can divide even the most civil community. Which shouldn’t be the […]

Anthony Raimondo – Raimondo & Associates

He’s used to sometimes being bad-mouthed in the media, Anthony Raimondo saying it comes with the territory. “I am a defense attorney and part of my obligation is to take on unpopular causes,” the president of Raimondo & Associates tells Vanguard in May from his office in Fresno, California. “But doing the right thing doesn’t […]

Andrew Filler – Sherpa Technology Group

Self-quarantined and watching a lot of television? Maybe on an ultra high-def screen with COVID-19 dominating the news cycle? If so, welcome to the crowd, and you may want to acknowledge the impact one attorney is having on your new daily routine. In a good way, at that. He’s Andrew Filler, general counsel of California-based […]

Adam Bean – Community Reach Center

Running a 600-employee nonprofit healthcare across 17 locations is a daunting task. It’s especially tough if the responsibility for tracking documentation falls to one person without the aid of a fully-staffed legal department. Having the leadership skills required is the main reason Chief Legal Officer Adam Bean says he was brought into Community Reach Center […]

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 […]

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 […]

Adam Glick – Intercom

Finding a website is easy. Finding your way around one? Maybe not so much. But wait, there’s a message bubble in the lower right corner—someone is offering to help you with everything from a customer support question to making a purchase decision. Customer-messaging technology is getting better all the time, with live chat, bots and […]

Alex Yastremski – DZS

It was a cutting-edge telecommunications company in every aspect but one, that being its position of in-house legal counsel had gone unfilled for over a decade. Which was becoming an issue as DZS—DASAN Zhone Solutions—sought to expand its global footprint in the fast-evolving and highly competitive industry of designing and manufacturing broadband access technology and […]

Adam Wergeles – Leaf Group

These days, aspiring artists needn’t live in a garret (or always go hungry) to stick to their craft. Need proof? Look no further than Saatchi Art, a website that connects a community of more than 100,000 emerging artists from 100 countries to a global network of art buyers. It’s a new marketplace medium with millions […]

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.
