Here is a little quotation from the publication :
The headline this year focuses on the ability of the IPA Top 100 to move, pivot, change and adapt. Throughout the country, strategic discussions took place among owners to figure out how to react to the challenging economy and how to best position their firms to success once a recovery begins. "TIGHTEN THE BELT!" was the battle cry for most. But beyond that, strategies were as varied as the firms that pursued them.
In the list of the 2010 Top 100 Firms, which was ranked based on the U.S Net Revenue, Deloitte LLP & Subsidiaries of New York seated at the top, ranked #1 with the total revenue of $10,938,000,000. Following, in the 2nd place was Ernst & Young LLP of New York with total revenue of $7,620,000,000. While PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP of New York ranked in the 3rd place with total revenue of $7,369,000,000.
