Grant enjoys learning about his clients’ businesses and providing creative solutions to help them succeed.

A significant part of Grant’s practice consists of working with individuals and businesses on a variety of real estate matters, both residential and commercial. He assists with purchase and sale transactions, leases, easements, condominium creation, development, and financing transactions.

When he is not helping clients, Grant enjoys spending time with his family in the great Montana outdoors.
