March saw a varied range of general counsel moves such as Wells Fargo’s board voting this week for C. Allen Parker, the company’s general counsel, to be interim CEO and president to the National Enquirer owner hiring an in-house lawyer a month after the alleged extortion scandal with Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos.

Online loan marketplace LendingTree’s new general counsel formerly held a senior managing counsel position at Mastercard while the ex-chief legal officer of Angie’s List took the legal reins at its parent company.
