"Shepard Schwartz & Harris has been working with The John Buck Company since shortly after the inception of the company. SS&H helped us to design and implement the initial structure of our accounting systems and processes. SS&H has been an important part of our company by offering efficient and cutting edge approaches to our tax and accounting needs. SS&H has sophisticated capabilities that we have utilized as we grew from a Chicago real estate company to a global developer, fund manager and investor in both debt and equity real estate opportunities. As a result of this tailored service, SS&H has established itself as a valued partner of The John Buck Company. We credit the firm’s stellar reputation in the commercial real estate marketplace, as well as overall business community, as a reason many of our partners and clients have also turned to SS&H for their tax and accounting needs."
