Neil Boyden Tanner – Cigna

Neil Boyden Tanner is a man of many time zones as the general counsel for international markets at global health service company Cigna. Although his presence is rare in the company’s Philadelphia office, his efforts are still noticed. “A colleague used to say ‘the sun never sets on Neil Tanner,’” Tanner jokes. He says he […]

Nicolás Ruiz– Falck/Grupo Emi

The waiting may be the hardest part for anyone visiting a hospital emergency room, and there will be plenty of it. In the U.S., ER wait times range from an average of 11 minutes in Utah to 49 minutes in Washington, D.C. The time until a patient is sent home averages 91 minutes in North […]

Virginia MacSuibhne – Roche Molecular Solutions

Those who know Virginia MacSuibhne understand that she always finds a way—personally or professionally—to get something done. Despite suffering from endometriosis and Hashimoto’s Disease for years—undergoing seven abdominal surgeries in recent memory, missing a kidney and living with chronic pelvic pain—this high-powered attorney at Roche Molecular Solutions says she’s all about finding a solution—and the […]

Ethan Weitzman – HIDTA

In the Washington, D.C., area, Ethan Weitzman, fights the war on drugs in his own backyard, but he’s not a cop or a first responder. A Baltimore native, he’s chief regulatory compliance officer and general counsel for the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, or HIDTA, which coordinates federal, state and local drug interdiction efforts […]

Nicoline Huizinga – The Fashion Lawyer

As a female attorney who is also savvy and passionate about fashion, Nicoline Huizinga gets the “Legally Blonde” thing all the time. “It is very difficult,” she says. “You are being judged—the way I speak, the way I look, my accent, the way I smile, the way I dress.” But the avowed fashionista takes such […]

Joseph Balestrino – Grane Healthcare

With the aging Baby Boomer population and a critical shortage of nurses and other skilled health professionals, Joseph Balestrino sees an impending “tsunami” as he ponders the next chapter for 26 percent of the U.S. population. While not a health care professional himself, he primarily sticks to the law. The general counsel for Grane Healthcare, […]

Kate Proctor – Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care

When Kate Proctor sat down with the CEO of Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care in 2014 to discuss becoming the organization’s first in-house counsel, her commitment was far from set in stone. Her private practice career was thriving, and besides, she was already serving as Seasons’ dedicated outside counsel. After a three-hour conversation, buoyed by […]

Lynda Godkin – WEX Health

While working for Holyoke-Chicopee Home Care Services in Chicopee, Massachusetts, Lynda Godkin conducted entire conversations with one of her clients—an elderly woman who’d been removed from her home by the local department of public health—by kneeling on the doorstep and talking to her through the front door mail slot. After much gentle coaxing, the woman […]

Kyle Stone – Concerto Renal Services

Kyle Stone remembers his world changing on a Friday in November 2014. Working as a young litigator in Illinois, he was preparing to take a deposition that afternoon when the phone rang. His trusted mentor told him that the new governor-elect was looking to fill high-ranking legal positions in the new administration, and that Stone’s […]

Vanessa Walton – InnovAge

The van pulls into the driveway at 8:00 a.m.—right on time. The driver then shuttles you to a clinic in your community. After a routine checkup, it’s time for lunch, followed by a few hours of bridge—all in the same facility. By 4:00 p.m., you’re back home getting ready for tonight’s family dinner. It’s a […]

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.
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.
