Edward Woodall: Corporate and Commercial Real Estate attorney

Edward B. Woodall


As the son of two CPAs and business owners, Edward is well-acquainted with the sorts of issues that small or closely-held businesses regularly face, including taxation, business structuring, and real estate matters. Believe it or not, these were the subjects of his nightly dinner table conversations while growing up. In his practice, Edward is excited to help business clients solve problems in a variety of areas, including real estate development and leasing, entity formation and financing, and dispute resolution.

Edward joined Venn Law Group after graduating from the UNC School of Law in May 2019. While in law school, Edward competed on the Holderness Moot Court Appellate Advocacy Team, wrote and edited articles for the Environmental Law Symposium, and performed over 100 hours of pro bono work. He also worked in the Community Development Law Clinic, a transactional law clinic which assists non-profit organizations. While in the clinic, Edward developed valuable client interaction and case management skills. He enjoyed the opportunity to solve problems for clients so that they could focus on what really mattered to them — the causes they were passionate about.

Before attending law school, Edward studied history and Spanish at the University of Alabama, studied abroad in Cuba and Spain, and worked for the Johnston County (NC) Heritage Center.

When he’s not hard at work for his clients, Edward can be found in the weight room, on the pitch preparing for a rugby match, in the kitchen learning to cook a new dish, or out exploring new hiking trails with his wife and their labradoodle.
