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

Date: Thursday, December 8, 2016
Time: 10:00 AM PT / 1:00 PM ET

The influence and status of the general counsel continues to rise as roles and responsibilities 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, it is no surprise that these individuals are among the top-paid executives at their companies, and attracting and retaining effective general counsel is therefore critical.

Hosted in conjunction with BarkerGilmore and Willis Towers Watson, this webinar will explore how the GC role has shifted over the past decade and how that impacts recruitment and pay for top legal talent, based on findings from the recent Equilar report, General Counsel Pay Trends 2016.
