He also has extensive experience advising clients on private and public securities offerings, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and other strategic transactions, especially cross-border transactions involving multiple jurisdictions.

Prior to practicing law, Lu held marketing and business development positions in the life sciences industry. He specialised in commercialisation and had more than a decade of experience working with scientists and technology transfer professionals to transform ideas into successful products.
