Charles Wu specialises in cross-border venture capital and private equity, mergers and acquisitions, and general corporate matters.

Wu was born in Beijing and grew up in Mississippi and New Jersey. He leverages the firm’s full-service resources to explain China-specific issues to international private equity and multinational clients in a clear, concise, and digestible manner. When negotiating transactions on behalf of international clients, he connects his understanding of their expectations and priorities with his local knowledge and expertise of international business and legal terms. Recently, he has represented first generation Chinese-American entrepreneurs and their start-ups in their financing transactions with PRC investors and in the restructuring of their businesses and China operations.

Wu also represents domestic clients in pre-IPO cross-border venture capital financing, M&A, joint ventures and strategic alliances, follow-on financings of companies listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong or the NYSE and Nasdaq, public and private secondary disposals, Hong Kong transactional and compliance matters and outbound investments in non-PRC jurisdictions. Recently, he has served as a point of contact for domestic clients in connection with CFIUS, US export controls and US sanctions matters, as well as US legislative, regulatory, and political developments.

Prior to joining Han Kun, Wu was a corporate associate at a Wall Street firm.  Charles also served as a law clerk in the Superior Court of New Jersey and was a congressional intern for Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen in Washington D.C.

Wu is admitted to practice as an attorney in New York and as a solicitor in Hong Kong and speaks Putonghua. Wu received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan and his JD from Rutgers School of Law in Newark, New Jersey.
