In October of 2012, David Gomez & Associates (DG&A) was retained to fill the Senior Tax Associate position for Silver, Lerner, Schwartz, & Fertel (SLSF), a Chicago area accounting firm that caters to a wide variety of clients, from small businesses and start-ups to $100 million companies. DG&A filled the position within 60 days with Naveed Jiwani who was previously with Frost, Ruttenberg, & Rotthblatt, P.C.
Founded in 1982, SLSF has grown steadily into an accounting firm of almost forty people without sacrificing the hands-on, personal approach to client service. The SLSF staff is a tight-knit family of highly dedicated professionals demonstrated by the extremely low level of turnover among the staff as well as clients. Like many firms, Silver, Lerner, Schwartz & Fertel offers a full range of tax and accounting services and is current with technology, trends, tax law and reporting standards. SLSF has created a comfortable, enjoyable and stimulating work environment for staff and clients by injecting creativity and positive energy into the sometimes staid world of accounting.
Whether a privately held business, not for profit organization, high net-worth family with sophisticated needs or an individual with less complex needs, SLSF professionals regularly exceed clients’ expectations. This is accomplished by their commitment to become not just accountants-for-hire, but rather key members of our client’s team: taking a personal interest in their business; how it works; and each client’s business and personal financial goals. This level of involvement is truly the benchmark of Silver, Lerner, Schwartz & Fertel.
SLSF professionals, through personal attention and focused initiative, become trusted advisors that guide clients through complicated landscapes such as accounting and financial reporting, tax planning and compliance, wealth management and preservation and strategic planning. They were seeking an ambitious, confident and amiable individual with a CPA, with a commitment to delivery of excellent client service, and a desire to continually learn and grow in the taxation arena. Mr. Jiwani will prepare and review all income tax returns and services, research and consult on various matters, correspond with federal, state and local agencies while continuing to cultivate relationships with clients. Mr. Jiwani will join a team of responsive professionals chosen for their skill sets to best serve the needs of the client.
