About

Grant H. Frazier represents clients in business and complex litigation and arbitration matters involving commercial contracts, securities, corporate governance, real estate, construction, partnership disputes, trademark protection, and trusts and estates.  He routinely practices in state and federal courts in Arizona and the Ninth Circuit, and in arbitration proceedings before the AAA and FINRA.

He also drafts a range of commercial, corporate, real estate, intellectual property, employment, and estate documents.

Grant leverages his experience in both litigation and transactional matters in the provision of outside general counsel services.  To sharpen his understanding of the intersection of economics, law, and public policy, he completed the highly-competitive Frédéric Bastiat Fellowship.  Grant applies his value-added mindset to help clients with strategic planning, corporate governance, protection of intellectual property rights, positioning of businesses for acquisition, and leveraging emerging technologies in business operations.

Since his second year of practice, Grant has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report® in The Best Lawyers in America®: Ones to Watch in the areas of Commercial Litigation, Construction Litigation, Alternative Dispute Resolution, and Closely Held Companies and Family Business Law; Thomson Reuters as a Southwest Super Lawyers® Rising Star in the areas of Business Litigation and Closely Held Business Law; and by Martindale-Hubbell® as a Platinum Client Champion.

His scholarly works have been published by Harvard, Georgetown, University of Southern California, Arizona State University, UC Hastings, and other law schools, as well as by Dartmouth and Pomona Colleges.  His scholarship addresses a range of novel legal and ethical approaches to topics including non-traded real estate investment trusts (REITs), Arizona’s Regulatory Sandbox, the implementation of serum-based genetic tests related to diagnosing and treating traumatic brain injury as part of employer-sponsored wellness programs, CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing treatment, international economic espionage and U.S. intergovernmental debt, heuristic methods for assessing liability frameworks to optimize policymaking for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and the Senate confirmation process for U.S. Supreme Court nominees.

Demand for Grant's counsel transcends the law, and his passion for positively impacting his community is evident from his leadership for numerous organizations. He was elected by ASU Law's Board of Directors to ASU Law's Advisory Council in 2020 and appointed by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey to Arizona's Civil Rights Advisory Board (ACRAB) in 2021. Grant also serves as Secretary of the Board of Directors for the Center for Law and Military Policy (CLMP), Chairman of the Claremont Colleges Rugby Board of Directors, Attorney Editor for the Journal of Law, Policy & Military Affairs, and an alumni admissions interviewer for Pomona College.  He is also an active member of the Phoenix Committee on Foreign Relations (PCFR) and the Federalist Society.

In addition, Grant spearheaded the creation and endowment of the James Madison Scholarship – the first student-led endowed scholarship in ASU’s history – which seeks to promote student leadership and extracurricular intellectual programming.  Grant also leads development efforts for the Claremont Colleges Rugby Program and writes grant applications for the Center for Law and Military Policy.

Grant earned his law degree from ASU’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law in 2019 with a Law, Science, and Technology certificate.  He externed with the Hon. Bridget E. Bade, now of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit; Hon. David A. Thompson of the California Court of Appeal, Fourth Appellate District, Division Three; and the Arizona Attorney General’s Civil Litigation Division. Grant also worked as a Policy Analyst for a member of the Arizona House of Representatives; as a consultant determining the applicability of special privileges as part of a U.S. Congressional investigation; and on the Advisory Council of an education technology company.

While in law school, Grant served as Editor-in-Chief of the American Bar Association’s science and technology journal – Jurimetrics Journal ; Visiting Editor of the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy ; and as founding Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Law, Policy & Military Affairs.  He also served as President of the ASU Law Federalist Society; Vice President of Law Students for Veterans Legal Issues; Symposium Chair for the 2019 Federalist Society National Student Symposium – the largest law student conference in the U.S.; ASU Law’s Student Senator to the ASU Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA); and logged the second most pro bono hours in his graduating class.

He graduated from Pomona College in 2016 with a B.A. in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics.  While at Pomona College, Grant captained his football and rugby teams – earning All-League and All-American honors in both sports. 

Grant enjoys spending time with his family and is passionate about mentorship, fitness, educational travel, military history, geopolitics, and exploring the great outdoors.
