PWC is a global professional services firm headquartered in London, United Kingdom. It is the world’s largest professional services firm and the largest of the “Big Four” accountancy firms measured by 2011 revenues.
The firm was formed in 1998 by a merger between Coopers & Lybrand and Price Waterhouse. The trading name was shortened to PwC in September 2010 as part of a major rebranding exercise.
