PwC Assumes #1 Position in Top 100 Firms

PricewaterhouseCoopers edged out Arthur Andersen to assume the top position among the Top 100 Firms listing compiled by the Public Accounting Report.

Last year's listing showed Andersen as the top producer, but due to the break-up of Andersen and Andersen Consulting, the firm fell to number five. The firms behind PwC, in order, are Ernst & Young, Deloitte & Touche, KPMG, Arthur Andersen, Grant Thornton and BDO Seidman.

Even though growth was almost 18 percent last year, the overall growth has slowed somewhat; the previous year's growth was a little more than 25 percent.
