According to The Lincoln Lawyer season 2, Alex Grant is the owner of a construction company and also a member of the Armenian mob. Additionally, Grant appears to be Mickey Haller's key to arousing reasonable doubt that Lisa killed Mitchell Bondurant. Grant is a construction company owner whose business was involved with Bondurant's own company, and tensions had risen when Bondurant began losing money in their deal, leading to the threatening email. Furthermore, Grant's real last name is Kazarian, and he and several of his family members have ties to the Armenian mob, which proved his suspicious background, making reasonable doubt easier to obtain.

One particularly damning piece of evidence against Grant and his mob connections came from an FBI letter that confirmed the organization's suspicions about Grant and his activities. As it turned out, Grant was involved in a plethora of illegal activities, specifically on his construction sites, however, no evidence could be gathered to have him arrested. Bondurant knew this about Grant and tipped off the FBI, which is why they sent their letter of suspicion. In this way, Grant's relationship with Bondurant put him in danger of being condemned for his criminal background.

How Alex Grant Is Involved With Mitchell Bondurant's Death

Ultimately, Mickey's focus on Alex Grant was not misplaced. As previously mentioned, Grant and Bondurant were working together and Grant actively threatened Bondurant. More than that though, Grant has a dangerous connection to Bondurant through Henry and a man named David Webber. David works for Grant, and together, the pair were financing Henry's podcast in order to get closer to the case and make sure Lisa went down for Bondurant's murder. This suspicious activity, paired with Grant's already rocky relationship with Bondurant and his criminal past make him a perfect suspect in Bondurant's murder.

All in all, Alex Grant presents an unexpected twist in the Bondurant murder case, however, he is Mickey's best path to getting Lisa acquitted. Michael A. Goorjian's character offers a new story behind Bondurant's murder, but more than that, opens up a much more significant can of worms in that, after their stunts, Mickey and his team may no longer be safe. Alex Grant is a dangerous man with dangerous connections, and The Lincoln Lawyer season 3 may see Grant return in the future in an even more lethal position.
