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 […]

Paul English Smith – Cabell Huntington Hospital

All that’s waiting is approval from the Vatican to allow one hospital to acquire the other in Huntington, West Virginia. That would be Cabell Huntington Hospital’s purchase of St. Mary’s Medical Center. The transaction has been in the works since the summer of 2014, and had to overcome initial concern from the Federal Trade Commission […]

Rebecca Zimmer – GE Healthcare

It can be a stressful ordeal for any woman, anticipating the annual mammogram that the American Cancer Society advises for those 40 and older. Which is something that more than half of American women haven’t been undergoing. That’s according to a 2014 survey conducted by the nonprofit Society for Women’s Health Research. Some experts say […]

Sam Germana – Trinitas Regional Medical Center

Over the last 20 years, few industries have endured more upheaval—both good and bad—than health care. From quantum leaps in technology and data gathering to unprecedented security threats, the landscape that providers have navigated has ceaselessly shifted, often to the point of quaking beneath their feet. Ask Sam Germana, however, and he’ll tell you there’s […]

Sean Radcliffe – R1 RCM

Imagine you just started working in the sales department of a fast-growing company. You’re about to embark on a week-long trip to San Francisco to meet with potential clients and one question in particular has been nagging you to no end: “What if they want to see our contract?” At your last job, you’d need […]

Spiro Fotopoulos – Cognosante

Working at a prestigious firm like McGuireWoods provided Spiro Fotopoulos with excellent training, but the University of Virginia undergrad and Wake Forest University law grad found such an environment not quite conducive to his preferred career path. “Private practice is more reactive than proactive,” says Fotopoulos who, in October 2017, was promoted to general counsel […]

Steve Rinkle – PRS

This could be his home someday, an innovative and amenity-rich senior community taking shape at Arizona State University that, upon its expected opening later this year, could serve as a template for other campuses. But at least for the foreseeable future, the 60-something Steve Rinkle will be quite happy in his home on the wild […]

Steven Tam – Vancouver Coastal Health Authority

A patient with a sepsis infection lies in a hospital bed in British Columbia. Needing more information to determine the best course of action, the doctor reaches out to peers in the U.S., who offer to share their observations—and offer some potential treatment options. But they can’t have a look at the patient’s medical records […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
