H&R Block subsidiary RSM McGladrey Inc., a national accounting and consulting firm focused on serving the middle market, opened its first office in the greater Portland area of Oregon.

The firm said that the new office will focus on risk management and regulatory compliance work.

"Opening the Portland area office is consistent with our growth strategy of serving more major metropolitan markets," said RSM McGladrey chief operating officer and senior vice president Mike Kirley. "We already have a robust client base in the Portland area, and we expect to grow even more by being closer to other midsized businesses in Portland and northern California."

In early January, RSM McGladrey acquired the non-attest assets of the Rockford, Ill., office of BDO Seidman LLP, adding roughly 15 employees to its 145-person staff there. The Rockford office focuses on owner-managed businesses and high-net-worth individuals. RSM said that BDO Seidman's exit from Rockford made it the only national provider of accounting, tax and business consulting services in the area.
