James R. Dobberstein

San Francisco-based Shea Labagh Dobberstein Accountants and Advisors (FY17 net revenue of $22.6 million) expanded its tax practice in the Bay Area Nov. 1 by merging in A. L. Nella, an established San Francisco firm.

The deal 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 practice. A. L. Nella’s employees will move to SLD’s San Francisco office.

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 firm says.

“The synergy between the two firms is great,” says SLD’s MP 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. Nella’s legacy clients will see the enhanced benefits of having the combined team.”
