Brenton Grant

Brenton Grant was admitted to the Supreme Court of South Australia in 1997 and the High Court of Australia in 1998 and has practised exclusively as a commercial lawyer since that time. His clients benefit from his experience and the strategic approach that he applies to all legal issues.

As an experienced commercial litigator, Brenton has litigated and defended clients in a wide range of complex commercial matters across multiple jurisdiction throughout Australia.

Brenton works with clients to provide comprehensive commercial advice and representation to efficiently achieve the best, most practical outcome.

As the commercial law partner, Brenton has significant experience in documenting and providing high level advice on a range of commercial transactions including joint ventures, large scale property transactions, business structuring, commercial leasing and agreements.

For many years Brenton has prepared security and prime documentation for international and domestic banks and private lenders.

Natasha Grant

Natasha was admitted to the Supreme Court of South Australia and the High Court of Australia in 1999 and has practised exclusively as a family lawyer since that time.

Having practised in family law for over 15 years, Natasha has significant experience in dealing with financial property division and children’s matters for married, de facto and same sex couples.

Natasha is highly conscious that her clients are facing what is likely to be one of the most stressful and difficult periods of their lives and endeavours to provide guidance that will enable them to make educated and well informed decisions throughout the course of their matter.

Natasha strives to achieve the best possible results for her clients firstly, through lawyer negotiation. When litigation is necessary, Natasha has significant experience in successfully litigating matters, including complex multifaceted property disputes and urgent injunction and relocation cases.
