About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

Representing businesses throughout the country, from small start-ups to nationally known venture-backed companies, Eli’s practice involves providing sophisticated corporate legal advice across a wide spectrum of businesses and transactions. With a background in accounting and finance, a large portion of Eli’s practice includes multi-million dollar venture capital deals, mezzanine round commercial debt transactions, early-stage angel, as well as family and friends offerings.

Named a Rising Star by the Vermont Business Magazine, Eli is very prominent in the “Slow Money” and “invest local” movements, referred to as the “go-to guy” for creative financing in Amy Cortese’s book “Localvesting.”

Working with regulators at the Vermont Department of Financial Regulation, Eli has proven instrumental in helping to relax securities law to facilitate raising capital, and he was directly involved in recent revisions to the Vermont Small Business Offering Exemption (VSBOE) and Solar/Utility No-Action (SUN) Exemption.
