Features Health Care

Shannon Dwyer – Providence St. Joseph Health

In the midst of national uncertainty about access to healthcare, and growing concern regarding cuts to government programs, Providence St. Joseph Health—one of the country’s largest not-for-profit health care organizations—is taking action to transform the delivery of its services. During this time, Shannon Dwyer steps into a new role as special adviser to the organization’s […]

Thomas Huyck – Appalachian Regional Healthcare System

In sheer verdant beauty, few places in America can hold a flame to western North Carolina. Though its days as a frontier outpost are now centuries gone, there endures—in the sparsely settled bluffs and valleys strung along its outer reaches—a pioneering sense of community. The flip side you likely know: the dwindling economic opportunity and […]

Alejandra Castro – Bayer Corporation

When discussing what inspired them to choose their profession or specialty, most lawyers will cite a famous TV or film attorney, or perhaps a parent or relative who practiced law. For Alejandra Castro, it was a poet, and that poet was her. “When I was writing poetry, I became interested in the rights of creation, […]

Driving change in workers’ compensation

“Get in the trunk,” Steve Sibner told his client after bailing him out of jail in the early morning hours of an especially memorable day back in 1986. It was one of the first pieces of legal advice that the young attorney gave to anyone, as he had only recently graduated from American University’s Washington […]

Jason Groves – Medifast

Jason Groves has been an attorney for more than 20 years, but it wasn’t until 2011 that he was personally thanked by clients for changing their lives. That was the year that Groves joined Medifast, a Maryland-based nutrition and weight loss company that had just nabbed the top spot on Forbes magazine’s list of America’s […]

Mauricio Joffily Pinheiro – Shire

On paper, his employer remains the same, but for all practical purposes Mauricio Joffily Pinheiro no longer works for the same company he joined in early 2015 as the only in-house lawyer for Latin America. That’s because the Irish-headquartered Shire has grown exponentially, becoming one of the most acquisitive companies on the global biopharm and biotech […]

Career moves down to a science

Compared to what his father did decades ago, Bradford J. Shafer’s career change in the prime of his working life may not seem quite so remarkable. But it still represented a leap of faith that’s vindicated itself in the form of Shafer helming the legal department of a growing biopharmaceutical company in South San Francisco. […]

Best behavior is treating mental illness

It may be an exaggeration, but not much of one, to say that the nation’s largest behavioral health pharmacy and telepsychiatry provider is growing by the day. Maybe every other day. Or two of three. The day before its energetic general counsel, executive vice president and secretary, Alexander “Aly” M. Kayne, spoke with Vanguard in […]

JDS Therapeutics LLC

It’s not a magic pill—nothing really is—but over 50 clinical studies have attested to the positive effects of Chromax® as a weight-management supplement as well as for cognitive function and an all-around healthy glucose metabolism. Chromax, chromium picolinate, has been affirmed as GRAS (generally recognized as safe) for use in foods and beverages, and is one […]

Heritage Health Solutions

Allen Walker doesn’t want to talk herself out of a job, but she does want contracts to be written so that you don’t have to be a lawyer to understand them. As executive vice president and general counsel for Heritage Health Solutions LP, Walker is leading by example with contracts that are more user-friendly. In […]

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.
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.
