About Walter

Learn Walter’s areas of practice.

Will focuses his practice on middle market M&A and private equity transactions. Will advises investors, including private equity funds and VC firms, and assists emerging growth companies, in both sides of private capital raises.

Will’s M&A practice focuses heavily on Insurance Brokerage Agency and broad ranging Technology transactions, but he has led deals in industries as varied as automobile dealerships to municipal landfills. For nearly ten years prior to law school, Will was a small business owner and entrepreneur, that experience provides a unique perspective to his corporate practice as he focuses on efficient and practical results. Due to his real world experience, Will is able to advise his clients on both legal and business issues.

Since leaving the large Richmond-based law firm where he began his law career, Will has been able to deepen his relationship with several long-time clients by taking on the role of external in-house counsel for BHMS Investments, a private equity fund based in New York, and New Richmond Ventures, a Richmond based VC firm.

Will actively promotes awareness and advocacy for Rett Syndrome, serving on professional advisory boards of various Rett Syndrome organizations and donating his time pro bono to assist Rett families in Special Education matters. Additionally, Will is an energetic supporter of the start-up community in Richmond, where he serves on the Advisory Board of RVAWorks and the Board of Directors of RVAWorks’ nonprofit enterprise.

Mr. Rabke is admitted to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and he is a member of the Virginia and Richmond Bar Associations. Mr. Rabke received his juris doctor degree, cum laude, from the University of Richmond School of Law. He earned a bachelor of arts degree, cum laude, from Hampden-Sydney College.
