Rissa Revin – DAS Legal Protection Inc.

Imagine you’re an entrepreneur who started a business in downtown Toronto, locking into a high-rent space prior to COVID-19. When the economy ground to a halt because of the pandemic, your income died, making it hard to pay rent—and you’d already drained your savings. An angry landlord is ready to take you to court and […]

Rick Levy – ICM Partners

While there’s been no shortage of “pinch himself” moments—attending movie premieres, A-list parties and award ceremonies—nothing has topped the countless instances where a bright-eyed assistant would let Rick Levy know that Aretha was on the phone. “And it wasn’t some assistant on the other end holding for Aretha,” muses Levy, the longtime general counsel and […]

Randy Haight – Los Angeles Football Club

In early March, just days into the 2020 season, Major League Soccer was forced to blow the whistle on all matches indefinitely, owing to concerns stemming from COVID-19. Whether it’ll be game on anytime soon is anybody’s guess. As general counsel of the league’s Los Angeles Football Club, Randy Haight laments the lost opportunity to […]

Richard Mosher – Wind River

Whether its software is powering the Mars rover or directing a self-driving car, you’ll find Wind River. It’s one of the reasons why leading global companies across multiple industries seek out the Alameda, California-based company. Its pioneering technologies accelerate the digital transformation of systems with the highest standards for security, reliability and safety, says Chief […]

Ryan M. Newburn – Black Canyon Midstream

Drill for fossil fuels and three substances may come out of the ground: oil, natural gas and water. While there are multiple companies that can supply the logistics and infrastructure necessary for an energy producer to retrieve, transport and process one or two of those resources, Black Canyon Midstream might be a rarity with its […]

Rich Foehr – Sitecore

There’s a comic strip Rich Foehr recalls being posted in one of his former stops. Seems a couple of businesspeople had waited too long to run a sticky matter past the corporate legal department. “Now we have to run it past a judge,” a character quips. It’s precisely such a scenario that Foehr strives to […]

Robert Frankel – Investments & Wealth Institute

For Robert Frankel, writing became a way of life as he litigated insurance cases for policyholders in Philadelphia at the firm of Anderson Kill & Olick, but not for the usual reasons. To establish himself in the field, he was encouraged to speak and write as much as possible, going above and beyond his workload. […]

Robert Irwin – Tala

Somewhere in Kenya, there’s a man downloading an app on his Android smartphone in order to borrow $20. While seemingly a modest amount of money, the loan will actually let him grow his small business. In India, a woman might be taking out a mobile loan for the same amount to cover a medical emergency […]

Ron Vaisbort – MemSQL Inc.

Ron Vaisbort hopes it will serve as a manifesto for in-house counsel—a position he describes as a company’s “Chief Problem Solver.” The as yet untitled book, which he is co-writing with Marisa McGilliard, associate general counsel of Facebook, describes corporate counsel not only as legal minds, but as subject matter experts who use their legal […]

Rod Rummelsburg – AireSpring

It was a call Rod Rummelsburg recalls clearly. A young girl was missing; law enforcement needed an internet service provider address from his company, AireSpring, to follow a lead on where they might find her. The calls from law enforcement are not uncommon—as AireSpring’s general counsel, Rummelsburg’s legal team created a standardized form to answer […]

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.
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.
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.
