Chicago Accounting Firm & Business Consultants

Pasquesi Sheppard LLC was founded in 1975 with a primary objective to provide quality accounting services and business consulting to individuals and businesses in Lake Forest and the Chicago area. We pride ourselves on close involvement with each of our clients. Our philosophy allows us to assist in making informed and timely business and personal decisions with optimal results.

This approach has been successful and personally rewarding for our clients, our partners and professionals. Our growth is primarily due to recommendations from our existing clients and their outside team of professionals. These recommendations result from our involvement and interest in each client, recruiting talented certified public accountants and providing the highest level of quality accounting services. We enjoy and value the long-term relationships we have built with our clients.

We specialize in closely held private businesses and their owners, high-net-worth individuals and families, and non-profit organizations. We find it rewarding to work with companies and organizations whose ownership and governance is closely involved in the management of business operations.

To achieve a company’s strategic goals, management must have a clear image of financial performance. A comprehensive audit system, designed to reflect an organization’s special needs, can deepen this understanding

Our tax services include much more than the preparation of returns for Lake Forest resident & businesses. Our comprehensive approach to income tax and estate tax planning is designed to minimize the overall tax liability of a business and its owner.

Our business consulting services help Lake Forest businesses solve problems and develop management goals. To be effective in this critical role, we remain in close contact with the leaders of a client business, study its markets, and remain actively involved in its operations.
