Michael Grant - 42 Bedford Row

Introduction

Unlike other practitioners, Michael specialises purely in commercial and residential property litigation, and being a former solicitor he is able to view a legal case from all angles.

While regularly appearing in both the County Court and the FTT on all landlord and tenant matters, Michael is particularly known for his detail, and is often instructed on very complex property cases warranting an in-depth analysis into numerous connected leasehold agreements and inter-party relations.

In addition to his thoroughness, he has been described as “creative” and often finds avenues in what many have prematurely considered dead ends.

He is qualified to accept instructions under the Direct Access scheme.
