Wilson has extensive experience designing and implementing compliance programs, conducting anti-corruption due diligence reviews and handling complex and sensitive issues involving bribery, fraud, sanctions, money-laundering/terrorist-financing, cyber-security, competition law and financial services regulatory violations in the Asia-Pacific.

Wilson qualified as an Advocate and Solicitor in Singapore, was admitted to the Solicitors’ Roll of England and Wales and qualified as a Solicitor in Hong Kong.
