Grant qualified as a Solicitor back in September 1995 with a Practice in Ipswich, before joining Maples in September 1996. He became a Partner in the Firm in January 1999.
For the past 14 years with Maples, Grant has gained a considerable amount of experience in a number of areas of law. Grant is in fact the Head of the Dispute Resolution (Litigation) Department, as well as the leader for the Employment and Debt Recovery Teams. Grant also provides assistance as part of the Business Law Team.
Recently Grant has become a Member of the Employment Lawyers’ Association and has earned the Firm a contract with Temple Legal Protection Limited so that the Firm can offer Employment Guard to clients – a scheme that insures businesses against Employment Tribunal claims and the cost thereof.
Grant can be a persistent and determined litigator. These characteristics came to the fore in a recent Employment Tribunal claim. Grant recalls “After day one of representing a Claimant pursuing a claim for unfair dismissal by way of constructive dismissal (resignation) the Judge politely indicated to me and my client that we were losing and that it would be a waste of our time to continue to fight the case on days two and three of the hearing. Nonetheless the client wanted to fight on, and on day two we managed to turn the case around with the Judge then suggesting to the other side that they should settle up whilst they still could! The other side duly approached me at the next interval and then we agreed a very favourable settlement for my client.”
In his spare time Grant is very active in the community as he is the Company Secretary to the Spalding Sports Club Limited, and an active member of the Peterborough Business Club and is the marketing assistant for the Bourne and Spalding 4Networking Group. Occasionally he still has time to play and follow cricket, rugby, football and go to the gym.
