Before moving to the BVI in 2013, Grant practised at the English Bar where his work focused on commercial and chancery matters.
During his time in BVI Grant has acted on a wide range of matters including restructuring and insolvency, funds litigation and shareholder disputes. He has been regularly instructed by office holders including receivers and insolvency practitioners as well as other stakeholders and has provided expert evidence on BVI law.
Grant has considerable experience of working with Latin America-based clients and acted for the Brazilian Constellation Group in obtaining the first ever 'soft touch' provisional liquidation in the BVI. This was part of a wider cross border restructuring involving a judicially supervised restructuring in Brazil and Chapter 15 proceedings in New York.
As well as his LatAm specialism, Grant has a wealth of experience working with CIS-based clients and represented the successful party at first instance in substantial litigation involving Russia's second-largest airline. He also acted for Mikhail Abyzov in the ongoing litigation against companies controlled by Viktor Vekselberg.
He has also regularly represented Asia-based clients in respect of major cross-border litigation and insolvency matters. He acted for the successful party in a shareholder dispute regarding a global dry bulk shipping business, which involved a five day trial with simultaneous translators.
Grant is recognised by Chambers and Partners, Legal 500 and Who's Who Legal.
