BRISTOL, R.I., Nov. 1, 2018 ­­– The Roger Williams University School of Law on Thursday announced that Collin Bailey and J. Scott Kilpatrick will join the law school’s Board of Directors.

“Collin and Scott will no doubt make important contributions to the board because of their exceptional and diverse talents and their commitment to the success of the law school,” RWU School of Law Dean Michael J. Yelnosky said.

Bailey is a 2008 graduate of the RWU School of Law who now works as senior director for strategic procurement at CVS Health, in Woonsocket. In that role, he is responsible for management of the transformative CVS Health Procurement to Payment Program, management of all non-merchandise contracts, supplier performance management, and non-merchandise purchasing compliance.

Before joining CVS Health in 2011, Bailey ran a solo law practice in Rhode Island. Prior to that, he worked as an associate at Donovan Hatem LLP, in New York, and he was a legal specialist with the New Jersey Department of the Public Advocate Division of Rate Counsel. He received a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Caldwell College.

“Collin has been an engaged alumnus since his graduation from RWU Law in 2008,” Yelnosky said. “He is now part of the leadership team at CVS Health and has helped nurture the relationship between its legal department and the RWU Law corporate counsel externship program.”

Kilpatrick, a founding partner of Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick, is a seasoned trial attorney whose practice focuses on civil litigation, including insurance disputes and general litigation. He has successfully litigated hundreds of complex and high-stakes damages cases. His diverse experience includes insurance, business and disputes over wills, trusts and other instruments.

Kilpatrick previously worked at Morrison & Mahoney & Miller, and he was an Assistant Attorney General in the Criminal Division of the Rhode Island Department of Attorney General. He graduated from Emory University in 1985 and St. John’s University School of Law in 1988.

“Scott is a founding partner of one of the nation’s finest veterans’ benefits law firms, he has held numerous leadership positions in the bar, and he has a sterling reputation,” Yelnosky said. “He and his partners at Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick regularly hire RWU Law alumni, and their generosity has made possible our veterans disability appeals field clinic.”
