NEW YORK, April 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lawdragon announced that Delaware attorney Stuart Grant has been selected for its 2019 Leading Lawyers in America "Hall of Fame." With this honor, Mr. Grant joins the ranks of such prominent legal figures as Sandra Day O'Connor, Antonin Scalia, and Beau Biden.
Mr. Grant is internationally recognized for his extensive knowledge of Delaware corporate law, fiduciary responsibility, and other matters related to protecting and promoting the rights of institutional investors. In 1997, he co-founded Grant & Eisenhofer, P.A., which has recovered over $27 billion in the last 10 years and is one of the leading firms in obtaining $100 million+ settlements/judgments. During his time in the courtroom, Mr. Grant served as litigation counsel to many of the largest public and private institutional investors in the world and as lead counsel in seven of the ten largest settlements in the history of Delaware Chancery Court. He retired from Grant & Eisenhofer in 2018 to launch Bench Walk Advisors, a litigation financing company that provides innovative legal capital solutions.
Lawdragon, the national legal media company led by former editors of the Daily Journal, selects its Hall of Fame inductees, who will be featured in the 2019 edition of Lawdragon Magazine, for their enduring contributions and commitment to the law. Lawdragon has previously recognized Mr. Grant as one of the Top 500 Leading Lawyers in America, and as a Lawdragon Legend, alongside U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and twenty-nine other distinguished attorneys.
In addition to his legal career, Mr. Grant is known for his wide-ranging pursuits spanning philanthropy to horse racing. Mr. Grant and his wife, Suzanne B. Grant, founded the I Could Do Great Things Foundation in 2009 to support social and education initiatives, including the annual Beau Biden scholarship for Delaware high school seniors. He is an owner and breeder of race horses and recently celebrated with his partners when their horse, Monomoy Girl, was named 3-Year-Old Filly of the Year at the 2018 Eclipse Awards, the annual event to honor achievements in Thoroughbred racing.
