Greg Jenner advises and represents clients on a wide range of tax transactions and issues. He heads the firm’s Washington, D.C., office, is a partner in the tax practice group and is a past co-chair of the firm’s energy team. Greg first came to Stoel Rives out of law school, returning to the firm in 2008 after three tours of duty in the government and significant private practice experience.
Greg has ten years of combined experience at Treasury and on Capitol Hill. This experience provides him with unique and invaluable insights into legislative, tax policy, and budget processes, which in turn translates into value for the firm’s clients.
He was privileged to serve as both Acting Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury for Tax Policy (2004) and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy (2002‑2004). As Acting Assistant Secretary, Greg directed the Treasury’s Office of Tax Policy, which is responsible for providing the Administration with policy analysis, advice and recommendations relating to all aspects of domestic and international issues of federal taxation. He advised President Bush and Secretaries Snow and O’Neill on tax policy issues, including launching the Administration’s review of fundamental tax reform. Greg also served at Treasury from 1989-1992, as the Special Assistant to the then Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy.
Before joining Treasury in 1989, Greg began his tenure in Washington as Tax Counsel for the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance (1985‑1989), where he helped write the Tax Reform Act of 1986, among other pieces of tax legislation. Greg’s experiences throughout the tax reform process will prove invaluable to clients in 2017 and beyond.
Greg has had broad experience in virtually all federal tax matters, with particular focus on planning and implementing complex tax-related transactions, partnerships and joint ventures. At Stoel Rives, Greg has increasingly focused on planning for renewable energy projects.
As the prospect for fundamental tax reform in 2017 increases, Greg will be focusing more of his efforts on the various proposals and their effects on various industries and sectors.
Greg speaks nationally on renewable energy tax planning, agriculture tax issues, and tax and budget policy.
