🌊 Legal-Health-Finance-IT Extraordinaire: Joshua K.W Chu
LoTW: Joshua K.W. Chu; your Asian mom is still disappointed
I am a Hong Kong litigation solicitor focusing on the practice of dispute resolute and technology law. Prior to embarking my journey in law, I worked in the healthcare industry serving as the IT department head at a private hospital as well as overseeing their procurement operations.
The news I’ve chosen to share today fits mainly into business and finance. Maybe it is a bit of a change from what High Tide readers are used to!
If anyone would like, I’m more than happy to stay connected with any of you via Linkedin.
