KANSAS CITY, MO. - H&R Block said it is continuing its negotiations with McGladrey & Pullen in an effort to convince the accounting firm to maintain a 10-year old agreement under which M&P and Block's RSM McGladrey jointly service clients, but noted it is talking to other audit and attest firms as possible replacements.

Legal arbitration is also continuing over certain provisions of the operating agreements that regulate the relationship.
M&P notified RSM McGladrey on July 21 that it intended to end the relationship. Block CEO Russ Smyth said that "We have been quite clear in our communications that we believe the firms are better off together and that this course set in motion by the ten member board of M&P is risky from both a business and a financial perspective and is not in the best interest of our partners, employees and clients."
