Grice officially retired in January of 2017, after being one of the founding members of the firm. He worked with business clients since 1973, and represented many closely-held and small publicly-held companies. He was often called upon to handle the formation of subsidiaries, contract negotiations, intra-company dispute resolutions, lease negotiations and financings, and share and asset purchases and sales of such companies.

While Grice dealt with nearly every legal aspect of a business, he had deep experience in a wide array of commercial real estate projects. These included the formation of entities, and the financing and leasing or sale of condominium and residential subdivision and/or apartment projects. He worked on many office and warehouse, shopping centers, and raw land projects.

Grice also spent much of his legal career representing financial institutions. Many of these legal issues pertained to general corporate matters, lending, collection, and loan workout matters. He also represented the FDIC in various matters related to failed banks and savings and loan associations.
