Andy Grewal

Associate Professor of Law

Andy Grewal joined the Iowa faculty in 2011. Prior to joining the Iowa faculty, Professor Grewal taught at Arizona State University.

Professor Grewal’s scholarly interests relate to the intersections between tax, administrative law, and statutory interpretation.  He has testified in Congress on tax administration issues, and his scholarship in that area has formed the basis for several taxpayer challenges to the Treasury's regulatory authority, including in cases pending before several United States Circuit Courts of Appeal.  The United States Supreme Court recently cited Professor Grewal in a case involving a complex tax shelter.

Before joining the academy, Professor Grewal practiced in the Washington, D.C. office of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, where he worked on a variety of matters related to international tax planning, tax policy, and mergers & acquisitions. He received his J.D. from the University of Michigan, where he was a Contributing Editor on the Michigan Law Review and was awarded the Richard Katcher Senior Tax Prize. After law school, he received a full merit scholarship to attend Georgetown University as a Graduate Tax Fellow, and was awarded an LL.M. in taxation with honors.
