Carlos Landazabal Angeli – General Electric

Est. reading time: 4 mins

The trademark of a successful corporate lawyer? It’s not just legal and business savvy, answers Carlos Landazabal Angeli, who, since November 2012, has served as General Electric’s legal leader for South America’s Andean region, as well as Central America and the Caribbean. Anticipation is just as important, the soft-spoken general counsel tells Vanguard from his […]

Luis Gerardo Ramirez Villela – Müggenburg, Gorches y Peñalosa S.C.

Say a law firm is asked by a client to pursue an intellectual property (IP) case, despite having no IP staff to speak of. In the past, the firm would have to devote extensive crash-course resources to researching the issue internally—or more costly still, use outside counsel. Now, with just a few key words—“intellectual property […]

Once completed, it will pump out more than a hundred million gallons of clean, potable water a day. The largest of its kind in the Americas, the planned water desalination plant in Playas de Rosarito, Mexico, has widespread implications for the community, the country, the continent—and the world at large. And Hector Izzo is right […]

Javier Oroz Coppel – AXA México

“A System of Lessons Learned” is how Javier Oroz Coppel refers to the repository that he and his in-house team are compiling of the judicial rulings and case law that AXA México has dealt with in recent years. Whatever the outcome is in a case, there’s always something to be learned, he reminds from the […]

Daniel Perez-Cirera – Samsung Mexico

Daniel Perez-Cirera rarely feels nervous anymore. Nervous was going to bed Sunday night ahead of another 80-hour workweek, or flying to Finland for that first meeting at Nokia headquarters. As he walks once again into the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT) in Mexico City, Perez-Cirera isn’t gripped with doubts. But he’s aware of the […]

It was a game-changer, for sure. Last May’s Murphy vs. NCAA case in which the Supreme Court by a 6-3 vote left it up to the states to decide whether they would join Nevada, Delaware, Oregon and Montana in legalizing sports betting and dealing with its ramifications. Could be a sizable pot of money with […]

Michael Guidry – Cold Spring Brewing Co.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

So what came first, the beer or the can? The beer, of course, but without the can it’s not going far, kegs of any size being unwieldly in the grocery store. And as far as bottles go, customers and shippers prefer cans, because chilled aluminum keeps the suds cold and they’re easier to transport. But […]

Zurich North America Life

Est. reading time: 4 mins

There’s a startup feel at Zurich North America Life’s headquarters in New York City, where Patrick J. Carty’s responsibilities as general counsel seem to evolve daily. Zurich North America Life is part of the 146-year- old Zurich Insurance Group headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland. In 2010, Zurich expanded its well established and respected 108-year-old property casualty […]

Roger Nesbitt tried, really tried, to retire, but he just couldn’t do it. “I was bored to death,” he recalls. It was only a few weeks before the stir-craziness got to be too much and he just had to get back to work. Simply put, “I was looking for a new venture to get into, […]

Tonica Kombucha

Est. reading time: 5 mins

This just might be the story about the little engine that could. Almost literally. For just a decade ago, Zoey Shamai was moving one case of empty bottles at a time by bicycle, between a Toronto warehouse and her very congested apartment kitchen, where she was brewing her own take of a unique organic health […]
