Legal structure[edit]

Through a 1999 partnership with H&R Block, McGladrey operated under two separate legal entities:

  • McGladrey & Pullen, LLP
  • RSM McGladrey, Inc.

McGladrey & Pullen operated under the traditional partnership structure as most accounting firms, specializing in audit and attest services. RSM McGladrey was established under the partnership agreement with H&R Block to provide tax and advisory services under an alternative practice structure.

In August 2011, H&R Block announced it was ending its partnership and divesting RSM McGladrey to McGladrey & Pullen, reuniting the firms in a traditional partnership structure. McGladrey & Pullen acquired all employees, assets, and infrastructure from RSM McGladrey. The deal closed on December 1, 2011.

In May 2012, McGladrey & Pullen officially changed its name to McGladrey LLP. The change took effect at the start of the new fiscal year, May 1.

In July 2012, McGladrey changed its headquarters from Bloomington, Minnesota to Chicago.[2]

On October 26, 2015 McGladrey LLP changed its name to RSM US LLP. The name change creates a more cohesive global brand with their RSM International(RSMi) network.[3] McGladrey was an original founding member of RSMi in 1964 (being the "M" in RSM).
