Woods Rogers Completes Post-Merger Rebrand

Firm News
Richmond BizSense

In an article published on July 9, 2024, Richmond BizSense profiles our recent announcement of our website launch and name change to Woods Rogers.

The publication reports, “The name change follows the 2022 merger of Roanoke-based Woods Rogers and Norfolk-based Vandeventer Black. Their marriage created the fifth largest law firm in the state and included an office in Richmond.”

Woods Rogers President Dan Summerlin told Richmond BizSense editor Michael Schwartz in an interview, “People say, ‘in 2021 you were Woods Rogers, and now in 2024 you’re Woods Rogers.’ I keep telling people we are not the same Woods Rogers we were. We want to make a break from what the traditional Woods Rogers was before.”

The article highlights our firm growth in Richmond, where we have added a handful of attorneys since the merger.

Dan added, “Richmond is a focus of the firm in terms of where we see opportunities to add talent. It’s a little more fluid market for attorneys than Tidewater and others.”
