Former McGladrey managing partner and CEO Dave Scudder is returning to the firm to lead a new initiative for attracting emerging middle-market companies as clients.

Scudder departed the firm in 2011 after McGladrey resolved a messy legal dispute with H&R Block over the extension of a longstanding contract between Block and McGladrey (see Scudder Resigns as McGladrey MP). Block had acquired the non-attest side of McGladrey, which was known as RSM McGladrey, in 1999 and operated with the audit and attest side, McGladrey & Pullen, in what they called an alternative practice structure for 12 years. Block sold back the non-attest side to the McGladrey partners later in 2011 after the firm named a new managing partner, Joe Adams.
