Steve Sibner – NCCI

“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 […]

Kathryn Stalmack – BioScrip

By 2015, Kathryn Stalmack had reached a comfortable place in her career. She had made partner at a prominent healthcare practice in Chicago, Polsinelli PC, earning the firm’s trust and building her own client base. “I loved my job and I was working for one of the best healthcare firms in the country,” she says. […]

John K. Lines – National HealthCare Corp.

When John K. Lines met with his team on a recent morning, it was his turn to address the promise of the day to the six people on his floor at National HealthCare Corp. in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Promise No. 3, “Address your needs with a sense of urgency,” the senior vice president and general counsel […]

Abraham Ronai – Getinge Group

When Abraham Ronai was an undergraduate at Cornell University, he planned on becoming a mechanical engineer, not a lawyer. Then he interned at Pratt & Whitney, a jet engine manufacturer. While Ronai had always been interested in science, he couldn’t see himself working as an engineering manager or spending years constructing a single bolt. Instead, […]
