Deloitte Will Take Small Victories Over PwC When It Can Get Them

One can safely assume that Deloitte is still smarting from its one-and-done year as the biggest of the Big 4 accounting firms. One year as the top dog probably only whetted their appetite to leapfrog PwC again. The firm's fiscal year ends on Thursday, but there appears to be signs of hope that a comeback is in the works:

Deloitte has overtaken PwC to become the most popular auditor to FTSE 250 clients, according to the latest Morningstar guide. The rankings are determined by the size of a firm's client list. Deloitte picked up three clients in the last quarter, taking its total to 69. PwC stayed constant with 67 clients, which saw it slip into second place.
Don't scoff, people. This is the accounting firm version of small ball at work.
