The son of a lawyer, Stuart Grant grew up in Brooklyn and later in Westchester County, New York. He knew from a young age that he wanted to be a lawyer. “And not just any lawyer,” he recalls. “I wanted to be a corporate litigator.” True to his ambition, Grant became one of the nation’s most successful corporate litigators.
In 1997, Grant founded, with Jay Eisenhofer, the law firm of Grant & Eisenhofer P.A. The firm represents institutional investors in high stakes litigation. As the head of this phenomenally successful firm, Grant & Eisenhofer has won more $100 million+ securities settlements than any other law firm in the United States. In addition, Grant has served as lead counsel in six of the seven largest settlements in the history of Delaware Chancery Court.
Grant is recognized as a leading litigator for his work in Delaware Chancery and Securities litigation, as well as regulatory and corporate governance in the state and is consistently ranked in Band 1 of Chambers USA.
For the better part of the past decade, he has been named to Best Lawyers, ranked as a leading lawyer by Legal 500, and selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers.
Grant, who has also been recognized as one of the Top 500 Leading Lawyers in America by Lawdragon, is rated AV by Martindale-Hubbell, and is recognized by Benchmark Litigation as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in the nation. Additionally, The National Law Journal has selected Grant & Eisenhofer to its list of “Elite Trial Lawyers; The 50 Leading Plaintiffs Firms in America” since the commencement of the list.
Most recently, Stuart Grant was named to the Legal 500 Hall of Fame and was honored alongside U.S. Supreme Court Justices Sotomayor and Thomas, along with a group of 30 other distinguished attorneys, as a Lawdragon Legend.
