Grant graduated from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand with Law and Science degrees in 1994 and qualified as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand in the same year.
Grant is an experienced advocate having regularly appeared in the District and High Courts in New Zealand, primarily in respect of criminal and family law matters. He permanently moved to the UK, becoming a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales in 2003.
Since that time Grant’s practice has been litigation based with an emphasis on family law, contested wills & probate and employment matters.
With a practice which is now exclusively family law Grant deals with cases involving separation, divorce and cohabitation breakdown and helps clients deal with the financial issues arising as a consequence of their relationship breakdown as well as any issues in connection with the care arrangements for any children of the relationship. Grant also specialises in advising and representing clients where there are domestic violence allegations. Grant continues to undertake a large amount of advocacy work and regularly represents clients in family courts across Sussex.
Grant is a member of Resolution, a Solicitor Advocate, and a Resolution trained mediator.
After working as a Partner with Russell & Co Solicitors Grant joined Mayo Wynne Baxter when the firms merged in May 2019. Grant is based in the Crawley office but as and when needed will travel to other offices of the firm to meet with clients.
When not at work Grant enjoys mountain biking, running, going to the gym, watching the mighty All Blacks and travelling with his wife and two children.
"Grant filled me with confidence from the get go. Being as it was such a daunting experience, he was very reassuring. He kept me well informed throughout and broke down the legal jargon for me so that I could understand it all. Going to court was a bit scary but I felt much better with Grant in my corner. I would recommend Mayo Wynne Baxter's services and particularly Grant Parker to anybody needing legal representation."
