Stephen Grant


Stephen is one of the most experienced commercial lawyers in Otago.

Since 1976 he’s advised major corporate clients and medium-sized businesses on acquisitions and disposals, restructuring and finance issues. He also advises clients on trusts and estate planning.

Stephen is part of the Gallaway Cook Allan team of recognised experts in all areas of finance practice, securities and banking law relating to major corporations.

He’s proud to work with Otago businesses, helping them grow.

“I've spent my career working with some key people in developing new enterprises. I enjoy the fact that no two days are the same, and that I'm not just a lawyer but also a member of a team helping businesses succeed. It's a building experience — the work we do for one transaction helps us on the next,” he says.

"We don't take the short-term view, but work with our clients developing relationships of lasting benefit. And we do high-quality, cost-effective work — we try harder.”

Away from the office, Stephen enjoys developing his rural lifestyle property and is also engaged in Rotary activities.
