Roger Wallis, Chapman Tripp
Recent deals for Wallis include advising Metlifecare on its ASX listing, institutional placement and share purchase plan and advising EBOS on its placement and rights issue in conjunction with its transformative acquisition of Symbion for NZ$1.1bn. Wallis is described as the young gun of Chapman Tripp’s corporate offering: the rising star who has come into his own in recent years. “Roger was, back in the old days, the walking encyclopaedia [on] securities law and a superb technical lawyer, maybe not senior enough to develop a broader commercial reputation,” said one source. But things have clearly moved on since then, with Wallis being cited as a prominent dealmaker by many rivals.
