ABOUT bader martin
Advisors You Can Count On

Clients just expect great advice from Bader Martin.

We’ve advised three generations of the Alhadeff family and their successful family business for more than sixty years.

Terry and Alan Axelrod found the long‑term professional relationship they were seeking at Bader Martin and now, two decades later, we continue to serve them and the prominent company they founded.

We’ve served Childhaven for more than 20 years, providing services to support the organization in achieving its vital mission in our community.

Affluent individuals and families, closely held and family businesses, entrepreneurs and executives, professionals, and not‑for‑profit organizations all count on us to provide the insights and professional services that help them to succeed. And they remain with us, year after year.

Maybe that’s because we take each client’s success personally, as their advisors, professional colleagues and, often, mentors and friends.

Service-Driven Relationships that Deliver Value
One of the Northwest's leading full-service accounting and advisory firms, Bader Martin combines world-class technical expertise with a reputation for responsiveness and year-round personal attention. 

We recognize the merits of being your trusted advisor, not simply a once‑a‑year service provider, so we check in with you from time to time throughout the year. And because we want you to feel free to do the same, we don't charge you for quick questions or brief calls.

As a practical matter, our relationship-based approach also means that we deliver our services on time, on budget, and for a competitive fee that is commensurate with the value you receive.

Expertise and Insight to Help Clients Succeed
At Bader Martin, you'll find seasoned professionals with the expertise, and the depth and breadth of experience, to contribute to your success.

Most of our principals have worked for national accounting firms earlier in their careers — on average, for 11 years. A number have also worked as senior executives in private and public companies and many have advanced degrees in business, accounting, finance, or taxation.

Their backgrounds provide them with a working knowledge of complex business matters not often found in a local firm. They have the nuanced understanding that comes from years of experience in supporting clients with similar needs, challenges and opportunities.

An Independent Perspective
Clients know they can rely on our insight and advice, whenever they need it throughout the year. 

To justify that trust and to ensure that we always operate only in your best interests, we maintain an independent perspective free of potential conflicts.

Our professionals don’t accept referral fees or commissions, recommend specific investments, or sell products. As a fee‑only firm, the only thing we sell is our expertise and great advice.


This year—and every year since 2008—we earned the prestigious When Work Works award for exemplary workplace practices and effective, bold and flexible workplace strategies that increase business and employee success

For five of the last eight years, we have been named one of Washington's best employers by Seattle Business magazine


Nationally, we rank 210 among the nation's 300 largest CPA firms. We've also been recognized as one of the country's top 50 CPA firms and top 100 CPA firm employers



There is a diversity of languages and cultures at Bader Martin.

Our multicultural and multilingual professionals give great advice in Mandarin Chinese, as well as Japanese, Cantonese, Polish, Russian, Hebrew, Hindi, French, Spanish… and plain English.
