McGladrey is the fifth largest provider of assurance, tax and consulting services in the United States and the largest firm with a dedicated focus on the middle market. McGladrey Alliance is a premier affiliation of independent accounting and consulting firms in the United States, with more than 75 members in over 38 states, the Cayman Islands and Puerto Rico. McGladrey Alliance provides Dean Dorton access to the resources, tools and expertise of RSM US LLP. In addition, Dean Dorton has resources through RSM International, the seventh largest worldwide network of independent audit, tax and advisory firms, with more than 37,500 professionals in over 110 countries. Our involvement in McGladrey Alliance creates a professional knowledge base unmatched in the areas of audit, consulting, tax services, and industry expertise.
McGladrey Alliance is not a network of smaller firms who simply share ideas and discuss issues. McGladrey Alliance is a national accounting firm resource we can access when needed. McGladrey Alliance firms, such as Dean Dorton, maintain their name, autonomy, and independence and are responsible for their own client fee arrangements, delivery of services, and maintenance of client relationships. We can leverage McGladrey Alliance for education of personnel, audit software, accounting and tax research tools, technical subject matter expertise, and utilization of professional staff throughout the world when and if needed.
We provide access to the resources, experience, and professional knowledge base of a national organization while still providing the level of service and attention that only a locally owned, independent accounting firm can offer. Dean Dorton became a member of the McGladrey Alliance for one reason — to offer our clients the ideal resources to grow their businesses on a local, national and international scale.
