Pennsylvania Audit, Tax and Consulting

A depth of history and experience in the Greater Philadelphia region

The roots of our Philadelphia office run deeply with more than 50 years of experience in the area. In 1949, Rudolph Palitz opened its doors and quickly became a trusted advisor to the regional business community. Its merger into RSM in 2000 created an even stronger firm with national resources to help serve and grow its clients.

Today, we serve clients throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. RSM acquired two well-respected firms, King of Prussia-based, Mantas, Ohliger, McGary & Quinn and Philadelphia–based Simonson, Lipschutz & Fogel PC, allowing us to even better serve our clients. In 2014, RSM joined forces with Fesnak, LLP to increase our presence in the market. With over 377 permanent employees, RSM focuses on midsized companies throughout the Greater Philadelphia region.

RSM's Pennsylvania locations are honored to have been recognized with firm-wide accolades and individual acknowledgement of our exceptional staff.  We are exceedingly proud of our office and staffs’ accomplishments, including:

Our client service

As a national firm and through our affiliation with RSM International, we provide custom service offerings to both local companies and those who operate across the country and around the globe.

Our charitable efforts

Our commitment to the Greater Philadelphia region extends beyond serving the needs of our clients. Our personnel devote their time, money and efforts to many local charitable organizations, fundraisers and events.
