He is a member of the board of the BVI Restructuring and Insolvency Specialists Association (RISA) and has particular expertise in contentious and non-contentious cross-border restructuring and insolvency matters together with commercial and trusts litigation and claims involving fraud and breach of duty.

Background and experience

Grant was called to the bar of England and Wales in 2005 and moved to the BVI in 2013. He has since built a considerable practice encompassing the full range of BVI disputes and is described as "a highly trusted adviser" who is an "exceptional lawyer and is able to achieve exactly what the client wants". He regularly appears in the BVI Commercial Court and Court of Appeal as lead advocate. His areas of particular expertise include:

Restructuring and Corporate Recovery: Grant acted for the Brazilian Constellation Group and successfully obtained the first ever 'light-touch' provisional liquidation in the BVI, which was part of a wider cross-border multi-jurisdictional restructuring. Grant has also acted for a significant number of creditors and office holders in liquidations and restructurings (including schemes of arrangement), and has notably acted on various Madoff feeder related matters as well as the Luckin Coffee matter.

Digital Assets and Innovative Technology: Grant has considerable interest and experience in this area and acts on some of the largest crypto related matters in the world. His clients include the Joint Liquidators of FTX Digital Markets in the Bahamas and the Joint Liquidators of Three Arrows Capital Limited, the crypto fund previously valued in excess of US$3bn. He is able to advise on the full range of issues and disputes arising out of this industry. He has a strong track record in assisting in the early stages of disputes, including with crisis management.

Asset Recovery and Enforcement: Grant has significant experience in asset recovery and enforcement, including acting in the Tethyan Mining v IRP litigation, involving an application to enforce a US$6bn arbitration award. Such matters often require the seeking or the resisting of urgent injunctive relief in the BVI together with the appointment of a receiver and interim injunctive relief. Additionally, Grant has acted in many matters involving third party disclosure and Norwich Pharmacal relief.

Commercial Litigation/Shareholder Disputes: Grant is regularly instructed in shareholder disputes, often involving allegations of unfair prejudice, and where derivative leave is required. He represented the successful party at first instance in substantial litigation involving an airline and acted in the substantial and long running Emmerson v Renova litigation.

Contentious Trusts and Probate: Grant is experienced in representing trustees, protectors and beneficiaries in relation to their rights under offshore trust arrangements, including with relation to international tax investigations and the exchange of information.

Grant has additionally provided expert evidence on BVI law for the courts of other jurisdictions and is regularly asked to speak at seminars and conferences.
