An Accounting Specialist Among Generalists
Unlike general accounting firms, which view all clients through the same lens, we work to understand the unique business issues facing each client. Our specialized industry expertise gives us a profound understanding of an organization's operational and reporting challenges.
For more than 60 years, we have helped our clients manage risk, seize opportunities and maximize profits through every conceivable market condition. Our long-term perspective is formed by the latest industry trends. We go beyond "best practices" to embrace "next practices" - something traditional accounting firms are not wired to do.
Our teams are recognized for the tangible value they bring to clients. In the tax area, we routinely find opportunities for tax savings that other firms miss. In the financial advisory area, we identify ways to lower costs without sacrificing functionality. In the strategic advisory area, we help organizations align strategies, processes and people to accommodate changing market conditions. We are committed to bringing bottom-line value to every client interaction.
Uncommon Continuity of Service
We are a relationship-driven firm that embraces "client focus" as a core value. Our culture enables us to attract and retain top talent, resulting in one of the highest staff retention rates in the nation. That means our clients can expect to work with the same team year after year, enjoying uncommon continuity of service.
Consistently High Quality Ratings
VonLehman teams perform at the absolute highest quality level – a claim confirmed by the respected peer review process required by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. We have consistently earned the highest possible rating from the AICPA, a notable testament to the quality of our service.
Shared Leadership Model
In October, 2009, Brian Malthouse succeeded Andrew VonLehman to become the firm's fifth president and first non-family president. While the firm prospered under four generations of the VonLehman family, the time was right for a new, shared leadership model that taps the collective talents of the entire firm.
