Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies is pleased to announce the addition of Jim Davis and Colin Roskey to our government relations team. Jim has joined the firm’s Harrisburg office, and Colin will split his time between the Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia offices.

Jim Davis comes to Cozen from a five year tenure at Wojdak & Associates. Prior to joining Wojdak & Associates, he served as Senior Manager of Public Affairs for Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. where he represented the world's largest retailer in discussions with the Pennsylvania Governor's Office, cabinet officials, and state legislators. Jim was also responsible for managing new store growth and identifying partnership and charitable giving opportunities for the company. Before joining Wal-Mart, he spent several years lobbying on behalf of Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania and working as a research analyst in the Senate of Pennsylvania.

Jim will continue advocating for clients in Harrisburg, and has experience representing a variety of interests in healthcare, education, energy, retail, banking, entertainment, telecommunications, and various associations.

Colin Roskey has practiced with the health care groups of two major law firms, and served in a key position on Capitol Hill. He has advised health care companies on navigating legislative and regulatory policy in Washington on every major health care bill since 2003 including the 2010 Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the recently passed 2013 American Taxpayer Relief Act.

Before joining Cozen O’Connor, Colin was a partner in the Health Care Legislative & Public Policy Group in the Washington, D.C. office of Alston & Bird, LLP. He was a Health Policy Advisor and Staff Counsel for the Senate Finance Committee on health care‐related issues from 2001- 2004. While with the Committee, he worked on a small team responsible for the design, drafting, and passage of the landmark 2003 Medicare prescription drug benefit law, Medicare Part D. He joined Mintz Levin’s health care group in 1998 upon entering private practice, where he worked on government investigations and health care qui tam cases in addition to coverage, coding, and reimbursement matters.

Colin’s practice at Cozen O’Connor will focus on advising a wide range of health care clients on the regulatory process within the new health insurance system. Particularly, he will advocate for delivery system reforms, navigating new issues in health insurance exchanges, and advancing the interests of stakeholders in all branches of local, state, and federal government. He will continue representing health care stakeholders with interests or concerns before the U.S. Congress and the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.  He also will advise clients in traditional health care-related matters, such as those arising under the Stark law, and developing coverage, coding, and reimbursement strategies for Medicare providers and suppliers.
