Features Health Care

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

Luis-Xavier Hernandez – Unilever

When standing on the tee box before launching golf balls hundreds of yards down the fairway, Luis-Xavier Hernandez stops. He blocks everything out. He concentrates only on his body. Controlling one’s emotions, he explains, can be the difference between the average Saturday hacker and routinely scoring near par, and he sees parallels between his weekends […]

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 […]

Patricio Marquez Macias – Medtronic

Last year, when Black Lives Matter protests swept the United States, Americans weren’t the only ones called to action. In Mexico City, Patricio Marquez Macias watched protests play out in the news and across social media, particularly following the murder of George Floyd. The movement inspired him and his colleagues at Medtronic to create a […]

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 […]

Spiro Fotopoulos – Cognosante

Just like the solutions Cognosante provides to its customers, there’s always been a sense of controlled chaos for the company’s lean legal department. There are so many factors beyond the direct control of this unique firm providing innovative and transformative solutions to federal, state and local governments. And has that ever been true in the […]

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 […]

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.
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.
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.
