Deloitte Invests with Brilliant Media
Now, the Management Solutions and Services practice in the San Francisco office of Deloitte & Touche  just announced an investment in Brilliant Media , a Web design firm also based in the Bay city. The firm also has equity ownership in US Interactive and is mulling over similar deals. The amount of the Brilliant stake was not disclosed.
Deloitte spokespersons dismiss the fact that these arrangements constitute are strategic alliances. Rather, agreement provisions allow both Brilliant and US Interactive to work solely with Deloitte and not with any of the firm's competitors, like other Big 5 firms.
