Jason Grover is an associate in Latham & Watkins' Tax Controversy Practice in the firm's Chicago office. 

Mr. Grover represents taxpayers in all stages of federal tax controversies, including exam, appeals, and litigation in the US Tax Court, the US Court of Federal Claims, and the US district courts. Mr. Grover has led audits resulting in no change letters, made appeals arguments resulting in complete government concessions, and third-chaired litigation resulting in no-adjustment decisions. Mr. Grover has particular knowledge on the procedural and substantive aspects of partnership audits — both under the legacy TEFRA regime and under the new and evolving BBA rules — and has spoken and published on the subject. Mr. Grover's experience in this area allows him to help clients navigate this complex and changing landscape and avoid expensive disputes with the IRS and among partnership members.

Mr. Grover has experience across a wide variety of industries, and has represented clients in the medical device, software, oil and gas, financial institution, natural resources, and non-profit spaces. Mr. Grover's litigation experience encompasses complex corporate and individual tax matters involving economic substance, debt-equity, passive activity, partnership allocation, employment tax, and penalty issues. Mr. Grover also has substantial experience in the development and litigation of transfer pricing cases.

Mr. Grover frequently writes on tax matters, and has spoken before the ABA and FBA and at the 70th Annual Virginia Conference on Federal Taxation.

Mr. Grover earned his JD from Northwestern University School of Law, where he served as an associate editor of the Northwestern Law Review. He also has a Master of Arts in Public Policy and Administration from Northwestern University.
