Anna Grant has worked in the Employee Benefit/Executive Compensation space for 40 years, 20 of them as an attorney. Prior to attending law school, she worked as an ERISA paralegal, a Benefits Administration Consultant and as the Director of Benefits for a manufacturing conglomerate, which had over 25 operating subsidiaries. Anna always thought she was smarter than the attorneys she had to work with so to prove her point, she decided to pause her career and go to law school. She graduated magna cum laude from New York Law School in 2001.
Anna honed her craft at Weil, Gotshal & Manges in New York and then Alston & Bird in Atlanta, where her practice focused on employee benefit and executive compensation plan design and compliance, related matters in connection with corporate mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures, employee benefit plan restatements and amendments, ERISA reporting and disclosure requirements, ERISA plan fiduciary requirements and Executive Compensation matters including employment agreements, equity compensation plans and separation agreements. After her stint in Big Law, Anna went in-house, joining the legal department of SunTrust Bank, where she was the company’s employee benefit and executive compensation legal advisor. Anna joined Stanton Law in 2021 and is licensed to practice law in New York, New Jersey, and Georgia.
“When employers are faced with the threat of penalties — or the fear they might do something wrong — when dealing with 401Ks, it’s frustrating, intimidating and scary. I work with these complicated regulations every day so that you can stay compliant and focus on your core business.”
Born and raised in New Jersey, Anna moved to Atlanta in 2008. She enjoys reading, cooking, traveling, and trying to get her two dogs, Theo and Goliath, to listen to her.
