Company: Holding Redlich
Linda Lau, associate at Holding Redlich, advises on complex matters mainly in the areas of cross-border M&As, joint venture, corporate governance, dispute resolution, and crisis management. Her clients include prominent state-owned enterprises, governments, private equity funds and both domestic and international private and publicly listed enterprises. For instance, she advised a listed company on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in its proposed acquisition of a Sydney-based tertiary education institution for $100million. She led a team of five junior lawyers on due diligence and project managed the matter. She also assisted a Singaporean-based equity fund in acquiring a hotel in Brisbane for $18million and worked on every aspect of the transaction to successfully close the deal. Outside the office, Lau is an advocate for wellbeing and justice. Last year, she worked as a pro-bono lawyer for Queensland Homeless Persons’ Legal Clinic, and also represented Holding Redlich in LawPong2018, a fundraising event where the Queensland government’s panel law firms fundraise and pay-to-play in a table-tennis competition. All donations are used in combating human trafficking and exploitation of young people in Southeast Asia.
