She possesses considerable depth and breadth of outbound and inbound experience in all key areas of international tax planning, consulting, compliance and provisions, e.g., cross-border M&A, supply chain planning, tax treaty analysis, cash repatriation, Subpart F, foreign tax credit planning/foreign subsidiary tax basis calculations/modelings, Section 367/GRA, BEPS, and the anti-inversion regulations.

Lu’s career also includes a recent secondment to Shanghai, China, where she obtained working knowledge on Asia-Pac focused supply chain/procurement design, IP planning, Hong Kong offshore claims, cross-border cash pooling, etc. She also advised on China-based companies making domestic and overseas acquisitions and dispositions.
