About: Strohm Ballweg, LLP was formed in 1999 in Madison, WI. Initially, the Firm was a spin-off of the national insurance practice of a large national audit firm. The idea was to create a Firm focused solely on providing insurance clients with exceptional and personal service with experienced staff, knowledgeable about the insurance industry. The goal was to be the leader in serving insurance clients.

Our goal has become a reality. We serve the insurance industry unlike any other public accounting firm, with our 30 staff members providing financial and administrative services to more than 100 insurance carriers. We have brought a “new day” to the profession. Our fundamental beliefs are, and will always be, to truly make a difference and give our clients the best service possible, to build a Firm where exceptional people choose to work, a Firm that values meaningful relationships within the industry. We’ve coined these fundamentals as “The SB difference.” Each one of us at Strohm Ballweg knows exactly what this means. The more than 100 insurance companies we serve have come to know how it feels. It is our common goal; it is our commitment to the industry.
