San Francisco, CA – Shea Labagh Dobberstein (SLD), a leading CPA firm in the Bay Area, expanded its tax practice in the Bay Area on November 1st, by merging in A. L. Nella, a long-time San Francisco-based tax firm. The news follows the successful SLD merger of Engelman Accountancy Corporation earlier this year.

With the two mergers, along with organic growth, SLD continues to expand its Bay Area CPA practice. A. L. Nella’s employees will move to SLD’s 44 Montgomery Street location.

Joining forces with Shea Labagh Dobberstein will give A. L. Nella’s clients a greater platform of resources, access to broader expertise, and development opportunities for their staff. “The synergy between the two firms is great. We are very pleased to have A. L. Nella join our team and we welcome the A. L. Nella clients to our firm,” said SLD’s Managing Principal, James R. Dobberstein. “We add highly accomplished members to our leadership team and a talented team of associates. Both our existing clients and A. L.
