MHM CONTINUES RECENT GROWTH WITH ACQUISITION OF SAN FRANCISCO BASED SLD

September 17, 2021

Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. (MHM) today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the attest practice of Shea Labagh Dobberstein (SLD), a leading accounting service provider based in San Francisco, CA, with a closing effective September 1, 2021.

Founded in 1944, SLD is a leading full-service accounting firm providing accounting, tax and consulting services to public and private businesses. With around 100 associates, they are ranked as one of the Top 150 accounting firms in the nation.

With this acquisition, clients receiving audit and attest services by SLD will now have them provided under the MHM name. The tax and consulting work will be performed by CBIZ, a national business service provider that has a strategic association with MHM. Working together, MHM and CBIZ are the 10th largest accounting service provider in the country, as ranked by Accounting Today. SLD’s strong reputation, longstanding relationships, and active presence in the Bay Area, combined with the national resources and personal service of MHM, strengthens CBIZ MHM’s commitment to serving clients in Northern California and across the United States.

Andy Burczyk, MHM President stated, “We are thrilled to have the SLD team join our growing attest practice. They are one of the longest-standing and most respected accounting firms in the San Francisco Bay Area. Their practice lines up well with some of our existing strengths, especially in key verticals such as the Distribution industry and Employee Benefit Plan Audits. We look forward to serving the needs of their existing clients under the MHM name, and creating new relationships in the Northern California market. I am confident we will see continued growth in and around the Bay Area under the local leadership of Jim Dobberstein.”
