All businesses and families will, from time to time, find themselves awash in unfamiliar seas of change. Changes in market conditions, complex and substantial litigation or threatened legal action, the opening of a unique opportunity that lies in unchartered waters, challenges of succession, and extreme financial pressures, are all occasional, but not atypical life cycle events where one’s own experience and the experience of their traditional trusted advisors proves only to be “a lantern on the stern, which shines only on the waves behind us.”

​Worldly perspective in your language

Mr. Wise works with clients and professional colleagues in a close, personalized fashion, combining his holistic understanding of and experience with, local culture and environment with a disciplined, methodological approach to business and litigation stratagems in order successfully to address the challenge at hand. Mr. Wise’s background combines extensive “big firm” expertise and the seasoning that only comes with repeated exposure to complex, high-pressure domestic and international crises which he applies seeking creatively to develop a customized approach tailored to the needs, goals and comfort of the client as a whole.

The Chinese word for crisis is written with two characters: one meaning danger, and the other meaning opportunity. Change management of crises, therefore, is a crossroad at which the client faces both a blessing and a curse: managing the danger and seizing the opportunity. Mr. Wise works at that intersection.
