Mr. Gu’s practice includes cross-border business transactions, private equity investments, general corporate matters, foods regulations, corporate compliance matters and overseas public offerings.
Mr. Gu combines his hands-on practice experience in the United States and China, together with his extensive experience having worked in-house at a world-leading diversified healthcare and nutrition foods company as their Senior Counsel primarily responsible for nearly 50% of the company’s USD1 billion business in China. Mr. Gu has seen business operations in China under the microscope as an in-house counsel, at which position, he was heavily involved with the regulations and enforcement of food safety issues, and received academic training in earlier years on business management. Those business experiences give him the capability of appreciating the financial/business impact of legal issues as businesses appreciate them and offering insightful on-the-ground advice regardless of whether clients are seeking to invest in China through capital movement or operate a business in China.
Mr. Gu has also been a legal advisor for Chinese companies seeking to invest overseas or to tap into the overseas stock markets.
