In addition to serving as executive head, Wilson was also a principal lawyer in DWF Australia’s commercial disputes and insolvency practice. He also worked with Sparke Helmore as special counsel.

Wilson said that he was drawn to Hicksons due to its history and its family-friendly, flexible culture.

“In addition, the fact that the firm is looking to grow in uncertain times gives me confidence for the future. This is an expansion opportunity and I look forward to using my broad experience across construction, commercial litigation and insolvency to grow the firm through client retention and acquisition,” he said.

Managing partner Stewart Cameron praised Wilson’s extensive experience.

“Hicksons is delighted to have Lachlan join the partnership. Lachlan’s extensive experience will assist in diversifying Hicksons’ client offering in the Newcastle and regional markets, which aligns to the firm’s growth objectives,” Cameron said.
