Alex Lau Partner Vancouver +1 604 697 7920

As a Partner, I advise clients on accounting, cloud services, tax and operational matters, and provide assurance services. My role is to manage day-to-day progress and the delivery of engagements. I am typically the first point of contact during an engagement, as well as throughout the year.

I have ten years of public accounting experience with Grant Thornton LLP in Vancouver, along with tenures in Grant Thornton UK and Australia.

My primary focus is in real estate, where I have experience in construction, development, and property management of commercial, residential, and hospitality properties. I have experience navigating the regulatory requirements of brokerages and mortgage investment corporations.

From a geographical standpoint, I have significant experience understanding markets across Canada, as well as the intricacies of business practices in emerging markets and the United States.

I also have significant experience in working in the real estate sector and have experience in providing insights into effective structures that maximize stakeholder value.  Before joining Grant Thornton, I gained valuable real estate experience in the construction industry.

I have been a Chartered Professional Accountant since June 2011, and received my Bachelor of Commerce  from the University of British Columbia in 2008. I am currently a member of the Institute of Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia and the Canadian Institute of Chartered Professional Accountants. I also give back to the community as the treasurer of the Saint James Music Academy, which serves Vancouver’s downtown eastside through an after school kids program.

I am fluent in English and conversant in Cantonese.
