Biography

Ken Jones has more than 35 years of tax controversy experience, handling Internal Revenue Service (IRS) procedural, controversy and dispute resolution matters, as well as tax litigation. Prior to joining Eversheds Sutherland (US), Ken was a partner with a Big Four accounting firm, beginning in its Washington D.C. national tax office and then moving to national partner in charge of the firm’s tax controversy services practice. Ken represented an array of clients, including Fortune 500 companies, corporations, partnerships, and individuals, in many hundreds of matters before the Examination, Appeals, and Collection functions, and the national office. Now Eversheds Sutherland (US)'s Tax Practice Group draws upon that experience.

Prior to entering private practice, Ken worked for the IRS Office of Chief Counsel where, over a 15-year government career, he served as large case program manager, national office special trial attorney, IRS national tax shelter coordinator, technical assistant to the deputy chief counsel, and acting district counsel (Foreign Operations). As a special trial attorney, Ken tried many cases involving a broad range of matters of nationwide significance, including: tax accounting, corporate restructuring, business purpose, partnership, penalty, banking and valuation issues. As large case program manager, Ken was responsible for oversight, management and coordination of the program, as well as the development of long-range compliance and litigation strategies for the IRS. Ken is a frequent speaker on IRS practice, procedure, controversy and tax litigation matters, and appears regularly before industry groups, trade associations and professional organizations.
