Est. reading time: 4 mins

Deidre Arnold wanted to bring meaningful change to people’s lives as she grew up in Reading, Massachusetts.

Dan Lev – Intellia Therapeutics

Ten years ago, genome editing was still science fiction—and often not the good kind. From rogue dinosaurs in the “Jurassic Park” series to a cancer treatment that became a zombie apocalypse in “I Am Legend,” it was the tool of villains and mad scientists. Not so in reality, and not so today. “It amazes me […]

Daniela Marino – Knight Therapeutics

To obtain a driver’s license, applicants must follow rules when driving, such as braking at a red stoplight. Now, imagine that the stoplights constantly change colors and shape, so that drivers may one day need to brake 20 feet behind a neon-purple flashing light installed in the ground. It sounds absurd and confusing, but Daniela […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

During her 19 years with global pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, Debbie Walters-Francique has seen enough change to fill a Coinstar machine: shifts in medical technology; evolution within the company; heaving changes in the wider health care landscape.

Dan Zavodnick – Kedrion Biopharma

Est. reading time: 4 mins

For some, finding a career path is a matter of choice. For Dan Zavodnick, it was more a matter of circumstance and necessity. In October of 2008, one year after landing at a prominent New Jersey law firm, Zavodnick was laid off, along with the firm’s other first-year associates, victims of the country’s deepening recession.

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.
