The Evolving Role of the GC: Recruiting and Paying Your Top Legal Talent

Date: Thursday, October 19, 2017
Time: 1:00 PM ET / 10:00 AM PT

The roles and responsibilities of the general counsel continue to expand. As core members of the executive team, GCs are responsible for overseeing and addressing legal issues across departments, as well as providing expert advice to executive officers and the board of directors. Furthermore, given the heightened complexity and ethical issues in business deals due to the dramatic increase in global business expansion over the last 20 years, attracting and retaining effective general counsel is critical.

Hosted in conjunction with BarkerGilmore and Semler Brossy, this webinar will explore how the GC role has shifted over the past decade and how that growth in responsibilities and influence impacts recruitment and pay for top legal talent, based on findings from the new Equilar report, General Counsel Pay Trends.
