Grant is a relatively new member of the Trethowans team, having joined as a partner in March 2015. Initially qualifying as a solicitor in 1990, Grant is an accredited specialist family lawyer, with accreditations in private law children and advanced financial provision. He also trained as a collaborative lawyer in 2007, and an all-issues mediator in 2010, adding a number of sought-after strings to his bow.
Grant’s experience in family law spans 25 years, and he has experience in dealing with a multitude of complex cases – divorce, dissolution, complicated Children Act proceedings, financial cases (which involve advising medium to high net worth clients), pre-nuptial and pre-civil partnership agreements, cohabitation agreements, change of name deeds and more.
Grant is also a member of Resolution, a national body of family lawyers committed to dealing with matters in a constructive and sensitive way. He is a member of the Hampshire Resolution regional committee, and was elected as a member of Resolution’s National Committee in 2012, such is his dedication to resolving family legal issues in a non-confrontational manner.
His work in family law has seen him described in Chambers as ‘an astute family lawyer who is prepared to think creatively’, and ‘everything you want in a family lawyer: he’s fair, calm and focused on the client’. Grant has also attracted praise in the Legal 500 for his ‘client focus and professionalism’.
