According to reports, since 2005, Paul Hastings has completed thousands of projects on behalf of Chinese companies through its offices in Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong, and has achieved huge business interests. Among these local city banks in China, one is called Jinshang Bank.
On July 7, 2022, the Connecticut Bankruptcy Court appointed Luc A. Despins, a long-term partner of the law firm Paul Hastings LLP (“”Paul Hastings””), as trustee for Miles Guo’s chapter 11 case, and the matter caused a public uproar; people questioned and worried about the procedural fairness and the court’s negligence of the “”conflicts of interest”” between the trustee and the debtor.
The relationship and mutual interest between Paul Hastings and Bruno Wu represent a “”conflict of interest”” in Miles’ chapter 11 trustee appointment, that any court or lawyer should avoid.
Bruno Wu is a partner of Pacific Alliance Group, which is a partner of HNA.
Bruno Wu is the sponsor of the “Ma Rui Rape Case”.
Bruno Wu and Hu Shuli jointly planned a “”unrestricted media war”” against Miles Guo.
Bruno Wu participated in a bank statment forgery case in which Supreme Court Judge George Higginbotham pleaded guilty to the Supreme Court of the United States Department of Justice.
