- a presentation on multijurisdictional disputes, during which Mr. Wu led an in-depth discussion on the planning and implementation of cross-border dispute resolution strategies and the interplay among U.S., UK, China, Hong Kong, and various offshore jurisdictions, including the British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands.
