In-House Interrogatory

Asked: Our weekly question to the In-House community

The numbers are in.

The top-paid general counsel in the United States last year was Brackett Denniston III of General Electric, who earned a salary of $10.9 million.

The country’s other top-earning GCs came from CBS, Bank of America and Time Warner.

There is good news all around for in-house counsel. The survey by Corporate Counsel found that the average salary for general counsels was up 7 percent, to a high of $1,853,671. Average bonuses were also up 50 percent.

So here’s our question for you:

Does this year’s survey reflect earnings at your company?
