McGladrey Expands in California and Missouri
Joins forces with PKF San Francisco and Wolfe Nilges Nahorski
McGladrey LLP, the nation's leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, announced today that it has reached an agreement in principle to acquire substantially all the assets of Bay area firm PKF San Francisco and St. Louis-based Wolfe Nilges Nahorski (WNN).

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,” said Joe Adams, managing partner 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.”
“Becoming part of McGladrey is a natural evolution of our firm,” said Richard O’Leary, managing director of PKF San Francisco. “Culturally, our firms are very similar. We share a strong commitment to our people and exceptional client service.”

Our firms also share a strong commitment to supporting the communities where our partners and employees live and work.”
