As the daughter of a periodontist, Courtney P. Cowan has been fascinated by the healthcare field since childhood. Courtney often accompanied her father to his office where she developed an appreciation for physicians and their respective practices. Having absolutely no dexterity that is required to be a surgeon, however, Courtney instead decided to pursue a degree in business while attending Baylor University. It wasn’t until she was required to take a business law course that Courtney discovered her passion for the law. After graduating from SMU Dedman School of Law, Courtney serendipitously connected with ByrdAdatto and now combines her business background with her enthusiasm for healthcare and the law.

Courtney focuses her practice on operational, transactional, and regulatory matters, advising clients on a wide range of complex health care laws. She routinely counsels professionals in the health care industry on best practices for maintaining compliance with federal and state regulations that affect their day-to-day operations. In addition to her health care experience, Courtney assists clients with developing their corporate structure, corporate governance, and business succession planning.

In her spare time, Courtney enjoys traveling with her husband, under-utilizing her gym membership, avidly following Baylor athletics, and obsessing over her rescue dog, Charlie.
