“Corporate misconduct and permitting corporations to act with impunity has far reaching consequences for all of society, and particularly those who are more vulnerable. Being part of an organisation that seeks to hold corporations accountable for their actions is something that I am very proud to be a part of, and something that I see as essential to a better and fairer society.”

Grace joined Maurice Blackburn’s litigation funding arm, Claims Funding Europe, in Dublin, Ireland, in 2016 were she spent more than three years working as a litigation funder on several high profile cases.
