On August 1, 2018, Jessica Grant was recognized by the National Law Journal as a 2018 Trailblazer in Litigation. Honorees are selected based on the significant impact they've made in the legal industry.

Following is an excerpt from the publication that highlights Jessica's professional achievements:

As part of her practice, Ms. Grant has been first chair for three cases with claimed damages of more than $100 million. That includes a 2005 wage and hour class action against a large retailer in California that involved 116,000 workers and a $172 million award. "I was in my mid-30's, and it was my first wage and hour case. It changed the way the company did business in California." Grant also successfully represented the state of New Hampshire as first chair against some oil companies in a groundwater contamination lawsuit. The jury awarded $816 million. "It was the largest case in New Hampshire history. It was a three-month trial, and the jury came back in 90 minutes and gave us everything we asked for." Last year, she successfully tried a copyright infringement case on behalf of an entertainment company. "It was one of the first cases to consider whether one could post others' YouTube videos without a licensing fee by claiming fair use." She is frequently brought in late, especially in cases with no road map. "I can provide a new perspective and make the argument to the jury."
