Attorney Profile

A practicing attorney for more than 40 years, Glenn Lau-Kee is the founder of Lau-Kee Law Group PLLC. Based in New York City, he provides a variety of services for his personal and business clients throughout the area. Mr. Lau-Kee places a strong emphasis on business transactions, stemming from his first legal job as an associate at the Hong Kong office of a major international law firm. While he was there, he worked on bank financing transactions involving the construction of bulk carrier ships. Mr. Lau-Kee then moved to the firm's flagship New York City office, and he gained experience in mergers and acquisitions as well as leasing transactions.

Mr. Lau-Kee joined another firm in the following year, and his practice expanded to real estate financing. His business and real estate law experience since that time has encompassed the formation of corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies, commercial leasing, tax planning, Section 1031 like-kind exchanges, and commercial real estate sales and purchases. In addition, Mr. Lau-Kee has an active probate and estate administration practice.

Mr. Lau-Kee is admitted to practice in New York, Connecticut, and the District of Columbia. He is a 1971 recipient of a Bachelor of Arts from Yale University, and his subsequent legal education came at Boston University School of Law, which awarded him his Juris Doctor in 1974. Mr. Lau-Kee has long been a participant in several professional groups. He is a past president of the New York State Bar Association, and he remains active in that organization. Mr. Lau-Kee has served on the New York City Commission on Human Rights, and his memberships have also included the Association of the Bar of the City of New York and the New York County Lawyers Association.
