                        string query2 = "select CompanyName from Table_Client where CompanyID=@param";
                        SqlCommand cmd2 = new SqlCommand(query2, con);
                        cmd2.Parameters.AddWithValue("@param", comID);
                        SqlDataReader reader1 = cmd2.ExecuteReader();
                        if (!reader1.HasRows) return;

I think you'll find you can only execute 1 select command at a time per connection object. Fire up another connection and use that for your second query.

Your application or website rely on your database to deliver information about products and services to your customers. You can’t afford to have your database lose performance, lose availability or become unresponsive – even for just a few minutes.

Certainly not the "Best" way. It's a bit wasteful to use 2 connections when they're not needed. The "multiple active result set" (see vs00saini's links above)  seems ideal for this situation, but without knowing what version of ADO.NET you're using I can't say if they will work.

Another alternative is to copy the data locally into an array of some sort and loop through that, keeping in mind to only have 1 connection/command going at once.

SqlDataReader will not let you use its connection with another SqlDataReader while its still open, why not try using a DataTable for the first query then loop through the rows of the DataTable obj then execute your second query.

This is a sample code
===================
string connstr = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["dbconn"].ConnectionString;
SqlConnection c = new SqlConnection(connstr);
c.Open();
SqlDataAdapter adapter1 = new SqlDataAdapter("select * from table1", c);
DataTable dt1 = new DataTable();
adapter1.Fill(dt1);
foreach (DataRow dr in dt1.Rows)
{
           int id = int.Parse(dr["acc_class_fk"].ToString());
           SqlDataAdapter adapter2 = new SqlDataAdapter("select * from table2 where id = "+id+"", c);
           DataTable dt2 = new DataTable();
           adapter2.Fill(dt2);
}
c.Close();

note dbconn is a connectionstring entry in the webconfig
