R.W. “Eli” Moulton III, Esq.
Eli’s practice focuses on advising business clients and entrepreneurs on a wide range of business legal needs, including financing transactions, private offerings, venture capital, angel investment, slow money/social investing, crowdfunding, business acquisitions, employment matters, equity compensation, intellectual property and general contract and business matters. Eli often acts as a “general counsel” for businesses that are too small to justify the cost and expense of hiring a dedicated in-house counsel.

Eli has also participated on the Boards of several non-profit organizations, including The Sarah Holbrook Center, the Intervale Center and The Initiative For Local Capital, Inc. Eli is regularly ranked as a top-level attorney for corporate law by lawyer rating services – including Best Lawyers in America, Super Lawyers, U.S. News & World Report and Avvo.
