David Ortenberg – The Athletic

Its overseas invasion is underway, The Athletic—a U.S.-based online subscription sports publication—seeing the United Kingdom as a promised land for expansion, it being a soccer stronghold. The sport of the future, soccer was so often referred to in decades past, and the future is finally here. A 2018 Gallup poll cites 7 percent of Americans […]

Darron J. Flagg – PowerSchool

Secure in a choice legal role for 14 years at Intel Corp., Darron J. Flagg was deeply moved by a humanitarian trip as part of a team installing tech into a school in rural India. This, combined with a desire for a managerial position, intrigued Flagg when he saw an opportunity at PowerSchool in late […]

Dr. Mark Kokes – NantWorks

It’s not a topic familiar to most Americans, but for those working in the field of biologics, it’s a rule of engagement when filing a patent. Welcome to the world of the Budapest Treaty. As Dr. Mark Kokes, chief intellectual property officer at NantWorks, explains, U.S. patent laws practically require that biotech inventors deposit their […]

David Lancelot – eBay

With astonishing complexity in terms of jurisdictions, customer numbers and interaction volume—and thousands of contracts over the course of each year—just how does multinational e-commerce powerhouse eBay Classifieds Group (“eCG”) get it all done legally? If you ask David Lancelot, eBay Classifieds’ global head of legal, he’ll tell you it starts with best practice operations. […]

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, […]

Douglas Coleman – Aerion Supersonic

It was once the epitome of jet-setting, zipping passengers from Paris and London to New York and Washington D.C. and back in about half the time of a conventional commercial flight. Long and sleek, its wings fully molded to its body, and its thin nose section bowed as it landed, the Concorde broke sound barriers […]

Dick Garlish – Peak Reliability

He’ll likely be the man who essentially turns out the lights when the energy company that’s employed him since April 2017 goes dark for good. His job is due to be extinguished in the process, making this one of the least pleasant tasks that Dick Garlish has had to execute as an in-house lawyer at […]

Dianna DeVore – Inscripta Inc.

In some afterlife, Dr. David Livingstone might well be nodding in approval of Inscripta Inc.’s lofty agenda. “Feed, fuel and heal the world,” this young biotech proclaims from its headquarters in Boulder, Colorado—an objective similar to what the late missionary martyr undertook in Africa during the 19th century. If Inscripta is to succeed in its […]

Douglas Luftman – Nomis Solutions

He feels at home tackling some of the toughest challenges that the most innovative technology companies may confront daily. Whether it relates to negotiating multibillion-dollar commercial transactions, debt or equity financings, complex M&A or strategic partnerships, building legal teams, tackling intellectual property or privacy issues, or helping with sticky and complex business or legal issues, […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
