• Biography

    Frank Wu has helped clients navigate sophisticated transactions from the fields of energy to biotechnology. He has taken start-up companies to successful IPOs and worked with business leaders on strategic alliances, mergers and acquisitions.

    Frank co-chairs the Greater China Practice Group representing both U.S. and Chinese companies on domestic and cross-border transactions. In 2008, Frank assisted a Chinese public company in its acquisition of a U.S. target, which was reported by Bloomberg News as one of largest acquisitions of a U.S. target by a Chinese company at the time. Whether the client is a public or private company focused on energy in the oil service sector, biotechnology in licensing and acquisitions, pipeline acquisitions and build-outs, technology growth and IPOs, or chemical distribution internationally, Frank has provided his clients with a wealth of legal experience combined with strategic advice.

    Frank works closely with his clients, and has worked with an array of diverse companies but with one similar goal – to work together so that legal needs get balanced with business goals.
