WASHINGTON, D.C. – Oct. 05, 2020 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, has added Chia-Feng Lu as a shareholder in its Health Care & FDA Practice and Life Sciences & Medical Technology Group. He will spend most of his time in Washington, D.C. and the Tokyo/Osaka area, but will also regularly visit the other parts of the U.S., such as Boston; as well as European countries. Lu focuses his multi-national practice on guiding life sciences companies and emerging technology companies in non-life sciences fields through the regulatory and transactional law that applies to their products, technologies, services, and business strategies. He worked on several products based on Nobel-winning science in the past two decades respectively, and one of them has successfully reached the blockbuster status.
“Chiafeng brings a unique perspective that enhances our global capabilities in the health care and FDA space, and adds further depth to our growing Washington, D.C. team,” said Washington, D.C. Shareholder Nancy E. Taylor and Ft. Lauderdale Shareholder David C. Peck, co-chairs of the firm’s Healthcare & FDA Practice, in a joint statement. “Greenberg Traurig’s global platform aligns strategically with his practice, and his work in Asia and the U.S. will serve as an important resource to our clients.”
Lu, who represents clients expanding to Asia, also regularly assists companies entering the U.S. or Europe. He has broad experience and familiarity with business practice; the policy and regulatory systems in Asia, with strong emphasis on North Asia, among others; and often works with clients in local languages. Lu also sits on a number of advisory committees to the government, and has been an adjunct faculty to medical school and business school in leading institutes.
“Greenberg Traurig’s well-respected Health Care & FDA Practice and expansive global platformwill enable me to serve my clients and contribute to the practice’s international presence,” Lu said. “The firm’s award winning Global Corporate Practice, Government Law & Policy, International Trade, and its equally impressive Intellectual Property & Technology Practice, were especially attractive to me when choosing Greenberg Traurig as the next step in my career. This platform can underscore a total solution concept to deal with this ever fluid global business and policy environment.”
Lu comes from Baker McKenzie. He previously worked for a leading biotechnology company and a top 10 pharmaceutical company’s headquarter.
“My work with clients with matters before the regulatory agencies and policy makers in key markets will prove valuable for clients facing uncertain regulatory hurdles during their global business planning. Because I will be in Washington, D.C., where many policies with global impacts are being made, clients will have direct access to me to navigate those uncharted waters,” Lu added.
He advises on several strategic transactions and also assists investment banks, private equity firms, and venture capital groups in their evaluations of regulatory and policy developments to such uncertainty with respect to novel technology and compliance.
