Attorney Profile

A shareholder at Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., Kara Dowal devotes a large portion of her practice to the representation of health care providers and others in the industry in a variety of regulatory and transactional matters. She also has a general business law practice in which she assists small companies and their owners on issues involving entity formation, contract negotiation and preparation, mergers and acquisitions, financings, and corporate governance. Located in Concord, New Hampshire, her clients come from throughout the state.

In her health care practice, Ms. Dowal's clients include both for-profit and nonprofit institutions and their providers. The types of matters that she has handled have included the preparation and review of employment agreements, and she has extensive experience with regulatory compliance, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and the group of federal laws, collectively known as Stark Law, that deal with referrals by doctors of Medicaid or Medicare patients to providers in which the practitioner or an immediate family member has a financial interest. Ms. Dowal has also provided advice and counsel on the federal Anti-Kickback Statute, which prohibits the offer, payment or receipt of anything of value in exchange for referrals for which payments are made by a federal program.

Majoring in English language and literature, Ms. Dowal attended Boston College as an undergraduate, and she received a Bachelor of Arts in 2001. She then subsequently enrolled at Vermont Law School in South Royalton, and she was the managing editor of the Vermont Law Review before being awarded her Juris Doctor in 2006. Ms. Dowal spent more than nine years at a regional law firm before joining Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., in December 2015. She is admitted to practice before all New Hampshire state courts.
