San Francisco, CA – Shea Labagh Dobberstein, a leading Northern California CPA firm, has been named a 2018 INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) Best of the Best Firm for the fourth year in a row, based on the performance of management, “demonstrating an impressive commitment to excellence and sustainability.” Additionally, Shea Labagh Dobberstein received the distinction of a 2018 IPA Top 200 Firm.

For nearly 30 years, the IPA national benchmarking report has been well-respected for offering one of the most independent, thorough and accurate set of statistics in the CPA profession. Best of the Best firms are the peer group against which high-performing firms can benchmark themselves. These companies produce superior financial results, while planning for long-term, sustainable growth.

“Most firms don’t aspire to be average. Best of the Best firms are the peer group to which progressive firms aspire,” said Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Group and publisher of IPA. “In presenting the results of the IPA Best of the Best, we are proud to continue the tradition of expanding the imagination and the understanding of what is possible to achieve in running a public accounting firm.”

“We are again elated and grateful to be recognized as a Top 200 firm and as a Best of the Best firm for the fourth consecutive year,” said James R. Dobberstein, Managing Principal at Shea Labagh Dobberstein. “As before, we will not rest here. We expect to continue enhancing our team’s capabilities, deliver increased value to our clients, and win the award in 2019!”
