Alan Schmitz – Connect for Health Colorado

Alan Schmitz couldn’t believe news stories about federal and state bills being passed that were 500 or 1,000 pages long. It didn’t seem real. Who would write that many words—and who would read them? He would. Since encountering those stories, Schmitz has spent the last seven years helping people understand the 900-page Affordable Care Act […]

Karen Maher – Pivot Health Solutions

Pivot Health Solutions is on the rise. Actually, as Karen Maher points out, the health and wellness industry is on the rise, in greater demand than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic. And as general counsel, chief compliance officer and corporate secretary, she’s helping guide Pivot Health Solutions’ growth while creating new ways to increase diversity, […]

Robert Bryson Carter – Cone Health

Robert Bryson Carter knew he was in for a sea change when Cone Health began to shift from volume-based to value-based health care about a decade ago. Value-based care, where providers are paid based on the quality of care as opposed to the volume of services provided, is emerging as a model that can alleviate […]

Juliana Ugarelli – Getinge

They’ve long been used to save lives, but ventilators quickly became one of the most sought-after machines as the COVID-19 pandemic arrived. In Brazil, where Juliana Ugarelli is head of legal for Latin America for Getinge, helping provide its ventilators, as well as other medical devices, has been among the most rewarding times of her […]

Laurence Kraemer – Northwell Health

It would be easy to say Larry Kraemer has seen better days at Northwell Health, a comprehensive health care system operating in and around New York City. After all, even as Northwell Health grows—in part because of Kraemer’s expertise in tax and corporate finance—it’s also been at the epicenter of COVID-19 pandemic. That made it […]

Jeff Tuck – Summit Medical Group

As a young nurse interested in healthcare administration, Jeff Tuck recalls a pivotal conversation with an executive at a Tennessee hospital a few decades ago. “We need people in healthcare who understand law, and we need lawyers who understand healthcare,” Tuck was told. “I have conversations with lawyers who don’t understand when I say, ‘we […]

Atoussa Mahmoudpour – WELL Health Technologies

As Atoussa Mahmoudpour has observed, the COVID-19 pandemic has done something for healthcare that little else could: It led to a much greater use of remote care. For many patients, online appointments, including video or audio-only chats, became a necessity. Mahmoudpour is the chief legal officer of the largest single-chain network of primary care clinics […]

Natalia García Quintero – Colgate-Palmolive, Mexico

The mass consumer industry always appealed to Natalia García Quintero. Thus, connecting with Colgate-Palmolive was natural and instantaneous. Since the first day, she shared its progressive business model and goal of a healthier future for all people, their pets and the planet. Associate legal director of the company’s Mexican subsidiary since 2020, and a member […]

Mike Jones – Cape Cod Healthcare

By July 4, summer visitors will be streaming over the Bourne and Sagamore bridges to Cape Cod. Finding a patch of open sand to spread a blanket at Craigville Beach might be difficult, and clam shacks will bustle with diners. But the return of tourists will likely not dim the memories of working through the […]

Matt Nolan – Safeguard Medical

Matt Nolan’s life likely was spared by first responders using equipment available through a new company he now works for. It’s called Safeguard Medical, and he can vouch for its necessity. For it was in June 2019 when Nolan, then a young lawyer, was struck by a car while jogging near his home in Chicago. […]

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.
