Moody Presents at Vermont Bar Association Course
August 23, 2012
Corporate attorney Thomas Moody of Downs Rachlin Martin presented at a two-day continuing legal education (CLE) course for the Vermont Bar Association.
The course, Basic Skills in Vermont Practice and Procedure, is designed to meet Vermont’s new licensing requirements, which were amended in July by the Vermont Supreme Court and eliminated a clerkship requirement for experienced attorneys licensed in other states seeking admission to the Vermont bar. Instead, the attorneys must take 15 hours of CLEs, approved by the Board of Bar Examiners, that focus on Vermont practice and procedure.
Moody, who chairs the VBA Business Association Section, organized a panel of five business lawyers from four Burlington area firms to cover a wide range of topics relating to Vermont business and corporate law. Moody presented on Limited Liability Companies and the Vermont Licensed Lender Law. The two-hour business law session also included presentations on tax law, the Vermont Corporations Act and the Vermont Securities Act.
Moody advises on a wide range of business transactions, including loans, investment transactions, mergers, business acquisitions and complex business organization structures. He represents sophisticated investors, investment firms, and technology companies.
