Timothy Adelman – Luminis Health

Having learned to fly before he could drive, Timothy Adelman says a good pilot is always thinking several steps ahead. Emergency procedures. In-flight processes and protocols. Potential weather-related problems. Those are what they keep in mind. Likewise, he says anticipation and preparation are extremely helpful qualities for in-house lawyers, and he does his best to […]

Christian Krautkramer – GE Healthcare Pharmaceutical Diagnostics

The best general counsel understands how both ethics and legal advising strengthen a business, says Christian Krautkramer. Promoted in January to lead the legal and policy team for GE Healthcare Pharmaceutical Diagnostics in the Americas, he supports the company’s position in precision diagnostic pharmaceuticals, one of the fastest growing businesses in GE’s portfolio. After 10 […]

Marisol González Ortega – L’Oréal

It was an opportunity to help people from Mexico to Argentina as COVID-19 struck in Latin and South America, Marisol González Ortega recalls. As general counsel for L’Oréal’s Latin American operations, she’d already worked to keep production plants open during the pandemic. Now, plants that made shampoo and other personal care products could convert, in […]

Mike Watters – Essentia Health

As a student at the University of Michigan and before beginning a professional baseball career, Mike Watters remembers learning to manage stress as a second baseman. That ability to keep a cool head when runners were circling the bases and be a team member served Watters in life—well beyond his accolades as a player who […]

Paul Uhrig – Bassett Healthcare Network

Compared to working at a startup, being part of a new leadership team at a 100-year-old institution may seem breezy. But there’s a lot to consider—the history and reputation, the staff (some of whom have been there for decades) and the long-standing practices and procedures. But there’s also a benefit to new ways of thinking, […]

Liz Bartlett – Independent Care Health Plan

If you are a Wisconsin resident who’s fallen on hard times due to health issues, your whole world might fall apart. If you’re late with the rent, you could even face eviction—which could hurt your health even further. But through Milwaukee-based Independent Care Health Plan “iCare”—now a wholly owned subsidiary of Humana Inc.—innovative programs are […]

Vanessa Manrique – GE Healthcare

The lack of life-sustaining ventilators became obvious in 2020 with the onset of COVID-19, launching General Electric on a mission to produce and distribute the much-needed devices to hospitals worldwide. It’s been a challenge, to say the least, says General Electric Healthcare Mexico Senior Legal Counsel Vanessa Manrique—noting the trade war going on between the […]

Brandon Fairless – CHS Therapy & Rehab

Brandon Fairless remembers a teambuilding exercise in his first two weeks at CHS Therapy & Rehab. The CEO asked her executive team: “What do you rebel against?” For Fairless, the answer was easy. It was complacency. Since his arrival five months ago at the post-acute therapy organization, he has gotten to work as its first […]

Krishna Walker – CareVet

They’re among the last bastion of independent businesses in the U.S., providing care for four-legged, furry family members in cities, towns and regions large and small. The American Veterinary Medical Association estimated in a 2017 report that of the 28,000 to 32,000 veterinary practices in the U.S., about 3,500 are owned by larger companies. However, […]

Max Lafer – Home Health Care Services of New York

It was an interesting start for Home Health Care Services of New York. Husband and wife founders Jeff and Agnes Shemia conceived the idea for their Brooklyn-based business while talking on a park bench in 2004 and started building their healthcare dynasty from there. They’d leave all the legal details on how to make it […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
