Tom Burton – Traeger Pellet Grills LLC

It’s as sure a sign of spring as swallows returning to San Juan Capistrano. As the green creeps back into the lawns and trees begin to bud, off comes the grill cover, up goes the lid and on go the steaks. As spring approached in 2020 at Traeger Pellet Grills in Salt Lake City, Tom […]

Troy Grabow – PAX Labs Inc.

It’s a skill that’s not dependent on age or location. In fact, you don’t need to be a Hippie living near Haight-Ashbury to know how to enjoy cannabis. In a time-honored tradition, members of the counterculture from Woodstock to Kingston have developed different ways to consume marijuana over the years. But with legalization the world […]

Todd Johnson – Previvo

If nothing else, Todd Johnson lives for checklists and challenges. He checked off all the boxes when given a list of what he needed to do to get into West Point. As a cadet, he checked off all the items needed to get into flight school. In civilian life, he’s checked off all the things […]

Thaddeus Stephens – The Myers-Briggs Co.

After more than 60 years of making personality assessments used to develop management and other soft skills, The Myers-Briggs Co. is adept at helping determine what motivates people. Yet it found itself in need of a self-assessment over the last couple of years, in its business models, its place in the corporate world, and in […]

Ty Lufman – Smashburger

Ty Lufman is not afraid to roll up his shirtsleeves and bus a table as a corporate attorney for Smashburger. For a former semi-professional baseball player wannabe (who continues to play to this day), pitching in and being a team player seems to be part of his DNA. Admittedly, it’s been a bit of a […]

Tyler Browning – ERI

It’s like a modern-day archaeological dig, a time capsule, with piles of trashed TVs in their ‘70s wooden consoles, discarded cell phones, funky VHS tapes and recorders, electronic gadgets from years gone by, and data containing devices from all walks of life—all can be found at ERI’s eight recycling facilities located around the country. For […]

Todd McTavish – NYX Gaming Group

The instant he read the Google alert, general counsel Todd McTavish knew his career—and the industry that nurtured it—would never be the same. In a 6-3 decision announced on May 14, the U.S. Supreme Court effectively paved the way for U.S. states to legalize sports gambling,  bringing one of the country’s largest underground businesses—which some […]

Tammy Brandt – Dreamscape Immersive

With her crew’s interplanetary spacecraft safely landed, Tammy Brandt grabs a flashlight and points it towards the strange flora in front of her. A friendly-seeming amphibian—a kind of cat-frog hybrid—emerges from the shadows. Minutes later, a herd of massive dinosaurs passes by in the distance, right before a terrifying, toothed-and-clawed creature, eyes aglow and eager […]

Tiffany Walden – Olaplex

Marie Claire magazine calls it “the biggest new hair-treatment technology for years.” Kim Kardashian says it enabled her to go platinum and back without making a mess of her famous tresses. Molly Sims, she of Sports Illustrated swimsuit and NBC “Las Vegas” fame, also lauds the stuff. The miracle products limit damage to hair during […]

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.
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.
