Fairport, NY (June 15, 2017) — BarkerGilmore, a boutique executive search firm recognized for helping companies build world-class legal and compliance departments nationwide, released their 2017 In-House Counsel Compensation Report today. The data was collected from a random sample of nearly 1,600 in-house counsel throughout the United States via an online survey administered from March to May 2017.
“The compensation report is an excellent measure of industry trends and provides an approximate range for competitive compensation. There are many factors influencing a lawyer’s actual compensation including credentials, depth and breadth of skills, experience and performance, and leadership capabilities. We greatly appreciate the input from so many in-house lawyers across the country.” said John Gilmore, Founding Partner of BarkerGilmore.
“This is the first year we analyzed compensation separately for private and public companies, and the impact for those in the GC seat appears to be significant,” said Bob Barker, Managing Partner of BarkerGilmore.
