About

Overview

Shea Labagh Dobberstein (SLD), one of the oldest and most well-respected accounting firms in San Francisco, provides a full spectrum of professional accounting, auditing, tax and consulting services to privately-held businesses, individuals and nonprofit organizations.

For over 70 years, the Northern California business community has recognized SLD for having the deep expertise and specialized resources of a national firm, coupled with the personalized attention of a San Francisco-based advisor.

A staff of 14 principals and nearly 90 professionals help SLD’s clients improve their financial capabilities through the following:

  • Deep expertise amassed through decades of client involvement across many industries. Many of SLD’s partners and managers have extensive and proven experience as alumni of national “Big Four” accounting firms.
  • An internal collaborative approach allows SLD to analyze client organizations from different perspectives and proactively identify opportunities to improve financial performance.
  • Clients experience continuity of staff due to a supportive, balanced work environment at SLD that has resulted in relatively low turnover at all staff levels. Dedicated client teams work with the same client over many years.
  • Advice clients can trust. SLD is composed of unbiased, independent accountants. Less than 10% of accounting firms in the US have the distinction of earning seven consecutive “unmodified” peer reviews without comments from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), meaning that they are adhering to strict quality control standards. SLD is proud to be one of this elite group.
  • Global reach. SLD’s alliance with DFK International gives clients access to resources around the world, including over 2,200 professionals nationally.

With a long history of exceptional service, SLD has developed extensive knowledge of the issues facing clients’ industries. SLD’s service approach is based on year-round, open and responsive communication. The firm is positioned to offer the best of both worlds: the deep expertise and dedicated resources of a national firm, with the personalized attention of a regional advisor.
