McGladrey Expands in California and Missouri

Chicago-based McGladrey LLP (FY14 net revenue of $1.5 billion) announced that it has reached an agreement in principle to acquire substantially all the assets of San Diego-based PKF San Francisco and Wolfe Nilges Nahorski (WNN) of St. Louis. McGladrey expects to enter into definitive agreements and close both transactions on Aug. 1.

The transactions will enhance McGladrey’s presence as a leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market in the Bay area and St. Louis markets. The firms will join existing McGladrey offices in both cities.

“Joining forces with PKF San Francisco and WNN is an important step in McGladrey’s vision to be the first-choice advisor to middle market leaders across the country,” says Joe Adams, MP and CEO of McGladrey. “Enhancing our existing practices in both markets will enable us to more broadly serve businesses there while creating opportunities for our clients and our people. We look forward to welcoming our new team members.”
