Eli Underwood is an associate in Foulston’s Wichita office and a member of the firm's transactional practice group. He received his J.D. from the Washburn University School of Law, and his LL.M. in Taxation from the University of Florida Fredric G. Levin College of Law. Eli previously clerked with Foulston as a summer associate in 2018.

Additionally, Eli is a licensed CPA in both Kansas and Missouri. Prior to attending law school, he was a Senior Assurance Associate with PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP, in its Kansas City, Missouri office. With PwC, Eli's primary clients were in the insurance and reinsurance industries, and he assisted with audits in the asset management and business transaction services industries.
