Virginia law firms merge
Two Virginia law firms, Roanoke-based Woods Rogers PLC and Lynchburg-based Edmunds & Williams PC will join forces in Lynchburg on Oct 1.
The combined firm will operate as Woods Rogers Edmunds & Williams PLC in Lynchburg but will remain as Woods Rogers in Roanoke, Charlottesville, Richmond, Danville and other markets.
The merger brings 15 Edmunds & Williams attorneys to Woods Rogers' roster. Four new associates are scheduled to join the Woods Rogers Roanoke office in September.
In the coming weeks, both firms are working to integrate practice teams, client matters, employees, and systems. The largest practice groups in the combined firm will be banking and corporate, labor and employment, health care, litigation, and tax and estates.
After Oct. 1, Woods Rogers will have five Virginia offices and 78 attorneys.
