Today, Cozen O’Connor announces a transition for two of its ancillary businesses, Margolis Healy and Associates and COSECURE.
For decades, Margolis Healy has been a market leader specializing in safety, security, emergency preparedness, and regulatory compliance for communities and workplaces across industries, with a strong focus on K-12 and higher education. Acquired by Cozen O’Connor in 2017 as an ancillary business of the firm, Margolis Healy has continued its reputation as a leader in the field.
Today, the physical security and emergency preparedness capabilities offered by MHA will merge into the firm’s existing ancillary business COSECURE. This evolution comes as a natural next step in enhancing COSECURE’s cybersecurity focus to encompass all aspects of organizational security. COSECURE, as an expanded entity, will now offer industry-specific, comprehensive physical security assessments, crisis planning and response offerings, and workplace violence training, in addition to the cyber risk services it has always provided. Daniel R. Pascale, former executive vice president of Margolis Healy, now leads COSECURE as its new CEO.
Margolis Healy will now operate under the name The Healy+ Group. The business will focus solely on best-in-industry Clery Act compliance consulting, organizational assessments for higher education police and campus safety organizations, after-action reviews and special investigations, expert consulting for civil litigation, and culture and strategy services focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion practices and initiatives. Steven J. Healy, founder and CEO of Margolis Healy, will lead Healy+. Margolis Healy has cemented its reputation as a national thought leader in Clery Act compliance and Healy+ will continue to provide this same world-class services to the higher education community.
With this evolution, both COSECURE and Healy+ will continue to operate as ancillary businesses of the firm and will maintain a relationship as collaborators powered by professional-grade expertise, decades of experience, and leaders on the cutting-edge of their respective fields.
