Top 100 firm McGladrey LLP has agreed to acquire substantially all the assets of Bay Area firm PKF San Francisco and St. Louis-based Wolfe Nilges Nahorski.

McGladrey expects to close both deals on Aug. 1, 2015.

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.”

Dennis Nilges, managing partner of WNN, observed that the firms “share a client-centric approach to doing business. We focus on building enduring, trusted relationships with our clients. Our firms also share a strong commitment to supporting the communities where our partners and employees live and work.”

PKF San Francisco serves its clients in San Francisco and the surrounding area, and has earned a reputation for being a firm of trusted business advisors with a strong commitment to excellence. The firm includes one managing director and 13 client service and support staff employees offering assurance and tax services.

Wolfe Nilges Nahorski has a long history of serving clients in the St. Louis metropolitan area and has earned a reputation for building strong, lasting relationships with clients.
