Firm History

Founded in 1953 by Graham Lund and Harvey Guttry, Lund & Guttry LLP holds the distinction of being the desert’s first CPA firm. For more than half a century, Lund & Guttry has served the desert community. The firm has grown from an audit, accounting and tax service firm to include additional specialties such as business consulting, estate and trust planning and other comprehensive financial services.

Graham Lund first came to Palm Springs in 1939 on a six-week assignment to set up the books for The Racquet Club, a world famous tennis resort frequently by many of the era’s biggest movie stars. When he started his own accounting practice, The Racquet Club became his first client. From that association, he soon began providing accounting services to Thunderbird, Indian Wells and Eldorado Country Clubs as well as other Coachella Valley businesses. His association with Harvey Guttry began in the early 1950’s, and they formed Lund & Guttry.

In the 1950’s, economists estimated that the Coachella Valley would never be home to more than 85,000 people but today the combined population of the desert’s nine cities and adjacent unincorporated areas is approximately 360,000 and growing. Having been here continuously since the beginning of this growth period, Lund & Guttry has the history, experience and expertise to serve the varied needs of its clients.
