Chicago-based McGladrey LLP (FY14 net revenue of $1.5 billion) announced that it has reached an agreement to acquire Sellers Richardson Holman & West LLP (SRHW) (FY13 net revenue of $17.5 million) of Birmingham, Ala.

The deal, expected to be completed by May 1, will provide McGladrey with a presence in Birmingham, making the firm the leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market in Alabama.

“Joining forces with SRHW is an important step in McGladrey’s vision to be the first-choice advisor to middle market leaders,” says Joe Adams, MP and CEO of McGladrey. “Having such a strong practice in Birmingham will enable us to more broadly serve businesses in Alabama and surrounding states while creating opportunities for our clients and our people. We look forward to welcoming SRHW team members, who have an excellent reputation for understanding their clients’ needs and providing quality, responsive service.”

“Becoming part of McGladrey is a natural evolution of our ongoing relationship, given that we have been a proud member of the McGladrey Alliance for 12 years,” says Allen Dunn, MP of SRHW. “Culturally, our firms are very similar. We share a strong commitment to our people, quality and exceptional client service. We share a client-centric approach to doing business and we focus on building enduring, trusted relationships with our clients. Both firms also share a strong commitment to supporting the communities where we live and work.”
