Features Healthcare

David Rose – ProPath

It’s called PAMA, as in the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, but may entail unintended consequences. For while the 2014 law seeks to prevent cuts to the federal insurance program for senior citizens and some of the disabled, it means lower reimbursement rates for some of the most cost-efficient clinics so necessary in […]

Greg Pate – PRA Health Sciences

We’ve all known someone suffering from a rare condition or disease—if not a friend or family member, then someone a mere degree away. For most, such awareness brings with it a sense of helplessness; the sinking feeling there’s nothing you can personally do to improve their lives. Greg Pate can sleep a little easier. As the […]

Jeremy Livianu – Establishment Labs

The ringing of the Nasdaq bell was preceded by a phone call to Establishment Labs by Costa Rican President Carlos Alvarado Quesada last July 18. For this was a landmark moment; the Costa Rican company qualified for an initial public offering on an American stock exchange, its shares going for $26.60 and since holding fairly […]

Jonathan Wright – QPharma, Inc.

For Jonathan Wright, faith and family have always come first. Just as it did for his father and grandfather—preachers at Richmond, Virginia’s Church of God in Christ—who ingrained in their beloved son a reverence for the power of good deeds. Where does work fit in? If you ask Wright, the two worlds of work and […]

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 […]

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 […]

Leading by Empowerment, Teamwork and Trust

A young lawyer with expertise in international finance, Andreas Bohrer raised some eyebrows among his colleagues when he transitioned from regional general counsel of the Swiss bank UBS to a position with the Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis in 2010. “I was going from private wealth to private health,” is how the now 49-year-old Bohrer sums […]

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 […]

Nancy Fox Ardell – Enlivant

At 9 a.m. on Tuesday, a paralegal in Enlivant’s legal department opens the contract email box to find a newly submitted contract. After perusing it, the team member emails the sender to let him know which attorney will review and negotiate the contract. Later that day, Enlivant’s general counsel, Nancy Ardell, hops on the legal […]

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.
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.
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.
