Grant & McMurtrie

After serving in the Armed Forces, John Grant started out in the private investigation sector and, in 1965, he established the firm of Grant & McMurtrie. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Professional Investigators (since 1976) and was in fact the first Principal of the Institute (1976-1979). He is also a Member of the Royal Military Police Association (since 1957) and the Associated Licensed Detectives of New York State (since 1974).

John Grant was the originator of the Private Investigators (Registration) Bill 1984 which the Institute of Professional Investigators has long been trying to have passed through Parliament in an attempt to have the profession regulated in Scotland. Stephen Grant is now the Senior Partner of Grant & McMurtrie. He is also a Fellow of the Institute of Professional Investigators (since 1990) and a Past Principal (1997-1999).
