Features Pharmaceutical

Benjamin Looker – Trillium Therapeutics Inc.

Benjamin Looker wants to improve outcomes for cancer patients. And while he’s not a scientist or a doctor, he’s spent his career contributing to the cause. As the new and first general counsel for Trillium Therapeutics Inc., he’s helping the company as it starts new and expanded clinical trials. Taking the job in April, he […]

Robby McGarry – Kindeva Drug Delivery

There are many reasons why someone might not take medicine prescribed to them. Sometimes it’s because it’s difficult to self-administer. Other times it’s because it’s unaffordable. Whatever the reason, the alternative—an untreated medical condition—is not ideal. Robby McGarry hates it when necessary, and sometimes lifesaving, medications and treatments are out of reach for people who […]

Colman Ragan – Teva Pharmaceuticals

It’s the legal equivalent of taking the field at Yankee Stadium or the stage at the Met, and Colman Ragan had a front row seat. Though not the lead counsel for Teva Pharmaceuticals, he helped draft the argument given before the U.S. Supreme Court in Helsinn Healthcare S.A. v. Teva Pharmaceuticals USA Inc. “I was […]

Evelio Hernández Salazar – Sanofi

Even in high school, Sanofi Legal Counsel Evelio Hernández Salazar knew he wanted to make a career of helping people. When he joined Sanofi, and the COVID-19 pandemic arrived, he certainly got his chance. Working for the global life sciences pharmaceutical company from his office in Panama City, Hernández says COVID-19 turned the world upside […]

Greg Moss – Kadmon Holdings Inc.

Whether used in treating multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma or leukemia, more than 50,000 stem cell transplants are performed worldwide each year, according to the World Health Organization. Stem cell transplants can help extend life spans for five years or more. But on some occasions, a transplant can actually attack a recipient’s body. It’s […]

Barbara Ruskin – Silence Therapeutics

Sometimes taking the path you never expected can bring you exactly where you were meant to be. Such was the case for Barbara Ruskin, who after reading an article in Scientific American, signed up for every neuroscience class she could in college. The former high school musical actress hadn’t planned to study science, but her […]

Thomas Ghignone – Sanofi Pasteur

When going to work at Sanofi Pasteur each day, Thomas Ghignone keeps one goal in mind that’s both ambitious and simply expressed. “We want to live in a world where no one suffers or dies from a vaccine-preventable disease,” Ghignone says. “It’s what drives us every day. However, we’re working with live organisms here, and […]

Benedito Villela – Cimed

Coming from a family of teachers, Benedito Villela feels indebted to the profession. He’d like all professionals to share that commitment to the common good, especially if they’re now earning more than the educators who prepared them for a rewarding career. “Teaching is the mother of all professions,” the personable and passionate Villela tells Vanguard […]

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 […]

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.
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.
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.
