Wilson practised as a solicitor at the Office of Director of Public Prosecutions (NSW) before being called to the Bar in Australia and Hong Kong SAR in 2013 and 2012, respectively.
Wilson practices in general commercial and criminal law. In the commercial field, he focuses particularly on cross-border contractual disputes. Being one of the few barristers who can advise and appear in both Australia and Hong Kong, Wilson advises on complex matters between those jurisdictions and China. He has co-authored an article, “Taming the Dragon - enforcing contractual obligations in China,” published in the New South Wales Law Society Journal which introduces an alternative litigation pathway to enforcing an Australian contract in China.
Wilson’s broad experience has taken him to the Court of Appeal and Court of Criminal Appeal where he has appeared both led and unled.
Wilson conducts summary hearings and jury trials in criminal matters. He is currently on the Legal Aid Criminal Law Panel.
Wilson has also appeared in the NCAT in matters such as builder’s licensing for the applicants.
