General Counsel Salary is at a 1:3 Ratio to Their CEOs

Banking - investing - money - advisorsA new report by Equilar finds that companies with revenue between $1 billion and $15 billion pay their CEOs 3.7 times what they pay their general counsel.

The report (via Above the Law) puts the ratio for companies with revenue less than $1 billion at 3:1.

“But don’t go crying for in-house counsel just yet.” writes Above the Law’s Elie Mystal. “Median GC salary at the largest companies was $650,000, while the smaller companies Equilar tracked still posted at $325,000 median salary for general counsels. Which is pretty decent scratch, all things considered.”
