General Counsel Track Report

Career Track report

Much has been written about the increasing influence and responsibility of in house counsel but very little about the key skills and experience required to succeed.

Our Career Track Report obtained the views of over 140 General Counsel and Aspiring General Counsel through face to face discussions and survey responses with around 75% of participants from the UK, the balance from Continental Europe and a large proportion from international businesses. A strong consensus emerged as to the skills which contributed to success, those skills which were most often lacking and the factors which inhibit progress.

We have also included an in house counsel competencies framework based around the principle success factors which can be used as a template to adjust and develop to suit your company’s skills requirement, vision and values.

We hope you find the report of interest – you can download a copy below and do email any thoughts and observations to
