The annual 50+50 Firms list for 2012 features Brookson at an impressive number 59.
The news comes at a time when the accountancy industry is bucking the current economic trend. Indeed, the sector as a whole surpassed the £10 billion revenue mark for the first time.
"The UK's biggest firms have learned from the mistakes of the early noughties, when the downturn following the dotcom bust caught them unawares and overstaffed. More judicious hiring and flexible working conditions have seen the top accountants hold their own during very tough trading conditions," said Accountancy Age editor Kevin Reed.
"It's not to say that the last few years haven't been painful, but in general the biggest firms have generally made a better job of handling the situation compared to ten years ago."
The majority of firms have seen modest growth in tax and audit revenue over the past 12 months, but consulting services has driven growth, with three out of four companies reporting a two figure rise.
