Mid-tier firm opens Atlanta office

US firm RSM McGladrey has opened its
first office in Atlanta, Georgia. The new office adds to the firm’s
presence in the South East, which currently includes offices in
Florida and the Carolinas. The firm works with more than 200
Georgia-based companies. “Atlanta is a major financial and business
centre and we are pleased to be part of this dynamic marketplace,”
managing director of the Atlanta office Mike Stokke said. The
office will initially focus on tax, including income tax accounting
for progressive companies, but anticipates that the initial tax
service offerings will lead to additional tax, accounting and
consulting opportunities.

PwC pays £750 to former employee

PricewaterhouseCoopers UK (PwC) has
been ordered to pay just £750 ($1,200) to former employee Mihaela
Popa after she tried to claim a record amount in damages from the
firm. Popa had demanded £40 million in compensation for loss of
earnings and hurt feelings after she resigned from her job as a
forensic accountant with the firm in 2006. She claimed that PwC
tried to sabotage her career after she was made redundant from the
two jobs she took after leaving the Big Four firm. Popa previously
lost tribunal claims of race discrimination, constructive unfair
dismissal and wrongful dismissal against PwC in 2007. “In the
circumstances, we take the view that we are looking at an isolated
incident of victimisation or retaliation,” the court ruled. PwC
will seek to recover costs in court later this year.
