Wilson is an experienced civil and criminal law barrister. His expertise extends from representing clients in commercial law and equity, corporations law, conflict of laws, corporate and personal insolvency, arbitration and criminal law, to acting in matters where complex cross-border disputes arise, particularly relating to Hong Kong and China.
Wilson is one of the few barristers admitted to the Bars of New South Wales and Hong Kong. His dual admissions, coupled with his extensive international experience and well-developed linguistic abilities in Cantonese and Mandarin, place Wilson in a unique position to deliver a high degree of value when acting in matters which have both an Australian and international element.
Possessing extensive courtroom experience, Wilson has appeared both led and unled in a wide variety of courts and tribunals at first instance and on appeal, in both civil and criminal (summary hearings and jury trials) jurisdictions, including the New South Wales Court of Appeal and New South Wales Court of Criminal Appeal.
With a keen interest in domestic and international arbitration, Wilson has delivered presentations and published several articles pertaining to cross-jurisdictional issues, with particular focus on related disputes in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
Prior to being called to the Bar, Wilson practised as a solicitor at the Office of Director of Public Prosecutions (NSW). He holds a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of New South Wales, as well as a Post Graduate Certificate in Laws from the University of Hong Kong.
