As part of his corporate practice, Wilson has extensive experience in business formation and corporate governance, start-ups, tax structuring, dispute resolution and project close-out, and assists companies throughout the entire project spectrum, commencing at project realization and continuing beyond punch-list completion. Wilson also advises on the selection of appropriate project delivery systems and contractual structures, including the creation and/or revamping of internal contractual procedures and policies.

Wilson grew up in Austin, Texas and received his undergraduate degree (B.A. Sociology) from the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado in 2004, and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from South Texas College of Law Houston in Houston, Texas in 2007.
