Roanoke-based Woods Rogers, a law firm serving businesses and individuals across Virginia and elsewhere since 1893, is expanding to a new office in Charlottesville. The office, at 100 Tenth St., Suite 303, is led by partner Russell T. (“Rusty”) Schundler (right), a former Roanoke-based Woods Rogers attorney whose practice areas include mergers and acquisitions, securities and corporate finance.
Schundler returns to Woods Rogers after practicing the last three years at McGuire Woods in Charlottesville, and joins W. McIlwaine (“Mac”) Thompson, Jr. and Peter E. Rosden, who also are with Woods Rogers in Charlottesville. Schundler has represented businesses in a wide range of industries on transactions from formation through exit, including mergers and acquisitions, bank financings, contract negotiation, and formation and finance of start-up entities. He has also worked with private equity funds, venture capital funds and hedge funds with formation, offerings of interests to investors, and the review and negotiation of investments. Schundler practiced with Woods Rogers between 2001-2007. He is a 2001 graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law and also has a bachelor’s degree from UVa.
Active in the community, Schundler serves as a director for Jefferson Area CHIP, Inc., a director for the Charlottesville Business Innovation Council, and as a director for WorkSource Enterprises. With the expansion of its Charlottesville presence, the Roanoke-based firm is now able to offer clients in central Virginia a wide array of services and resources from its three other locations in Roanoke, Richmond and Danville.
