Johnson Moore

Chicago, IL, USA

Jenny L. Johnson Ware handles complex tax disputes of significant value for clients ranging from individuals to multinational corporations. She represents taxpayers in all stages of criminal and civil tax proceedings, including sensitive audits and examinations, IRS appeals, summons enforcement, search warrants, grand jury subpoenas, negotiated resolutions with the IRS and the Department of Justice, trials in federal district court and the U.S. Tax Court, sentencings and appellate litigation.  She has successfully resolved disputes involving income taxes, estate and gift taxes, excise taxes, federal and state tax credits, employment taxes, and employee plan matters.

Ms. Johnson Ware is a skilled trial lawyer with a sophisticated understanding of tax issues and extensive experience in each of the many forums where tax disputes get resolved.  She also routinely provides behind-the-scenes strategic counseling to clients and their other advisors on potential or existing tax-related disputes.  By bringing the perspective of a trial lawyer to the development of a case from the very beginning, she is often able to avoid the expense and uncertainty of protracted litigation and achieve a favorable settlement.  When that is not possible, she is a powerful and seasoned advocate in the courtroom.

After leading the tax controversy practices at two national firms, Ms. Johnson Ware founded a tax controversy boutique, Johnson Moore LLC, in 2016.  Ms. Johnson Ware is an adjunct professor on the tax faculty at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, and a frequent speaker and faculty member at both national and international professional conferences.
