As a Top 25 Minnesota Accounting Firm, we demonstrate our value by anticipating client needs rather than reacting to their requests. We are a mid-sized firm with the expertise and resources of a large firm, but with the personal contact and close relationships you would expect from a smaller firm. With approximately 100 employees, we are large enough to have resources to keep up with constantly changing rules and regulations. The following client case studies are just a sample of Smith Schafer’s results.
