Meet This Firm: Safe Harbor LLP

Safe Harbor LLP

Meet This Firm is a series of video interviews featuring the best accounting employers across the United States for high performing accounting professionals and CPAs. Please enjoy this sponsored post courtesy of Safe Harbor LLP, an Accountingfly Firm Partner. Contact Judy Schryver to learn more about firm partnerships.

Chun Wong started his San Francisco-based CPA firm, Safe Harbor LLP, over five years ago. His objectives were simple. He wanted to found a firm that:

  • Provides high level advisory services as well as the commodity services like tax returns that flow from them
  • Gives staff the opportunity to chart their own path through a nurturing environment, top-notch education and best-of-breed technology

“I believe you can only find that combination at a small boutique firm like ours,” Wong said, “otherwise you lose the personal touch.”

He is justifiably proud that staff is fluent in a number of languages, including Cantonese, Mandarin, French and Japanese because it makes them more valuable to their global clients.

It’s deeds, not words, that show staff as well as clients how committed the firm is to their success. At Safe Harbor, the goal is creating an atmosphere where the work is challenging but “doesn’t feel like work because it is work we love and we are doing it with people we trust and enjoy being with.”

Small firms like Safe Harbor are only small in size, not ideas or opportunity. If you are looking for a position at a San Francisco firm where you can learn and grow, click here to start a conversation. And to learn more about Safe Harbor, watch our Meet This Firm video with Chun Wong below.
