Chicago-based McGladrey LLP (FY14 net revenue of $1.5 billion) announced the acquisition of Dayton, Ohio-based Battelle Rippe Kingston LLP.

The transaction provides McGladrey with a presence in Dayton, Cincinnati and Troy, along with its growing offices in Cleveland and Columbus.

“By joining forces with Battelle Rippe Kingston, McGladrey has the opportunity to truly own the middle market in Ohio with offices across the state,” says Joe Adams, MP and CEO of McGladrey. “The depth and breadth of our combined Ohio practice will be a major force in the market, creating opportunities for our clients and our people. We look forward to welcoming the Battelle Rippe Kingston team and benefitting from their more than 140 years of combined experience in the state of Ohio.”

“As a longstanding member of the McGladrey Alliance, we believe that this transaction is the logical next step in our evolution as a firm and the culmination of our strategy to provide our clients and people with new opportunities for growth,” says Charles Foley, MP of Battelle Rippe Kingston. “McGladrey’s focus on the middle market and approach to client service are very similar to ours.”
