GC Compensation: Breaking Down the Numbers

Looking for baseline data on GC compensation? Check out a piece at the Metropolitan Corporate Counsel that provides some figures to work with:

“Median compensation for general counsel increased slightly between 2014 and 2015 at companies ranging from under $1 billion in revenue to more than $15 billion, according to “General Counsel Pay Trends 2016,” a new survey from Equilar, which collects information on 150,000 executives and board members of public companies….Not surprisingly, GC compensation varies considerably by company size, as does the growth rate of compensation. For example, median total GC compensation at companies with revenue above $15 billion was $2.5 million, while it was $725,021 at public companies with less than $1 billion in revenue.”
