one of the most well-respected and longest-standing Bay Area accounting firms
Shea Labagh Dobberstein (SLD) has the local knowledge and global presence you need when you are searching for an accountant in San Francisco. We are one of the most well-respected and longest-standing Bay Area accounting firms, offering a full range of auditing, tax, and accounting services. With approximately 100 employees across three Bay Area offices, we offer both large and small firm advantages.
We have the deep expertise and specialized resources of a large firm. Our global reach includes membership in DFK International, an association of worldwide accounting firms. We are also small enough, though, to deliver responsive, proactive service. Constant communication between practice areas gives you technical expertise and focused attention on the unique needs of your business.
We are very happy with the response time from SLD. The information they provide is always very pertinent to the questions we have asked. There are never any loose ends, we are always fully apprised of all that we need to know, from a CPA firm in touch with our industry.
