Features Pharmaceutical

Shawnte Mitchell – Zogenix

It’s a parent’s worst nightmare, that feeling of helplessness seeing a child in their first year of life being struck with increasingly severe seizures that can lead to frequent emergency room visits, hospital stays, cognitive impairment, behavioral disorders and motor disabilities—even an increased risk of sudden death. Such is the medical and social gravity of […]

Michael MacDougall – EMD Serono

There are nearly one million people living with multiple sclerosis in the U.S. That’s about the same as the number of people living in Austin, Texas, the 11th largest city in the country. It is an unpredictable disease that strikes women two or three times more often than men. The progress, severity and symptoms affect […]

Augusto Martínez – Eli Lilly and Company

An in-house attorney who’s doing their job well knows they’re a voice for the company’s growth. It’s about saying “yes” as much as possible—while making sure what they advise also complies with legal and ethical standards. Saying yes in the face of a global pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges to Augusto Martínez, the Latin American […]

Nate Mark – RedSail Technologies LLC

It could have been a cruel twist of fate when Nate Mark’s desire to pursue something different in his legal career left him with nothing to pursue at all. Looking to bring his expertise to the tech field and having multiple opportunities in the works, Mark accepted a severance package as his former employer restructured […]

Gregory Orleski – Pharmascience

Within the pharmaceutical industry, one might say that Gregory Orleski has seen it all in a career spanning more than 20 years. But his fascination for business keeps him coming back for more. That was certainly the case with Montreal-based Pharmascience Inc. Initially joining as a business development advisor, a role he held from 2011-2015, […]

Marcela Inzunza – Boehringer Ingelheim

Being head of legal and compliance for Chile, Ecuador and Peru at Boehringer Ingelheim is demanding under normal circumstances, requiring Marcela Inzunza to meet rules and regulations while guiding the pharma company’s business development in three very different South American countries. It’s made all the more challenging by the COVID-19 pandemic and the pivot to […]

Edward A. Sturchio – Immatics Biotechnologies

Edward Sturchio doesn’t spend his time in a lab like the researchers, technicians and scientists responsible for the life-saving innovations developed by the biotechnology companies he works for. But he has made a science of advising and growing those companies. As he chatted with Vanguard in June 2020, Sturchio was enjoying his second day as […]

Kamil Ali-Jackson – Aclaris Therapeutics Inc.

As a young girl growing up in the civil rights era, Kamil Ali-Jackson believed that the best way to positively impact the lives of others was through the law. After graduating from Harvard Law School in 1984, she got her start as an attorney with New Jersey’s largest law firm, McCarter & English. There, she […]

Molly McCoy – Astellas Pharma US

The lessons have taken her far. She’s been senior leader in the legal departments for industry giants including Sandoz and Mallinckrodt, and she’s crisscrossed the country as her career grew. McCoy now works outside Chicago, guiding Astellas Pharma’s U.S. commercial legal team. But in spring 2020, her typical day’s work was anything but as the […]

Ariadna Padilla – Takeda Pharmaceutical

It’s an instance where the new kid on the block really needs someone with experience to help show them the ropes. But as Japan-based Takeda Pharmaceutical enhanced its presence in the Latin and South American markets through its acquisition of Irish-based Shire, the former Shire regional legal team led by Legal Counsel Ariadna Padilla finds […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
