A partner in Waller’s corporate practice, Roddy is a trusted advisor in the private equity space, where he leads and advises on private equity transactions, mergers and acquisitions and growth equity financings, as well as general corporate law.

Roddy represents both investors and portfolio companies in venture capital investment transactions, including early stage and growth equity transactions.
