Saxena White is pleased to announce that Kyla Grant has been promoted to Director of the Firm. With over a decade of experience in securities fraud litigation, Mrs. Grant will use her extensive knowledge and expertise to help guide the Firm’s continued success.
“I am truly honored to join the Board of Directors of this firm,” said Mrs. Grant. “Saxena White’s success is driven by its client-focused approach, its highly talented litigation team and its unmatched commitment to inclusivity and diversity. I couldn’t be prouder to join the leadership team of the only female- and minority-owned law firm in the plaintiffs’ securities bar, which is all the more meaningful to me as a half-Mexican American woman.”
Mrs. Grant has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in all phases of litigation in federal and state courts, at both the trial court and appellate levels. Prior to joining Saxena White, Mrs. Grant served as securities fraud counsel at two top-tier global defense firms where she successfully represented some of the world’s leading corporations and major financial institutions. Since joining Saxena White in May 2017, she has been an instrumental part of teams securing significant recoveries for shareholders in federal courts across the country amounting to over $200 million, including Leon D. Milbeck v. TrueCar, Inc., et al. in the Central District of California, Plymouth County Retirement System v. GTT Communications, Inc. in the Eastern District of Virginia, City of Birmingham Retirement and Relief System v. Credit Suisse Group AG, et al., in the Southern District of New York, and a $135 million settlement for Peace Officers’ Annuity and Benefit Fund of Georgia v. DaVita Inc., et al., in the District of Colorado.
Mrs. Grant earned her J.D. from the University of Virginia, where she served as an editor of the Virginia Journal of International Law and was appointed as a Dillard Fellow. Prior to law school, Mrs. Grant graduated with distinction from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, where she was selected to become a member of the prestigious honor society Phi Beta Kappa.
