It seems 36% of general counsels in Britain want to have a permanent place on their company’s board of directors in the next five years, according to a report published Thursday by British law firm Shoosmiths.

The report is based on a survey sent out earlier this year by Shoosmiths and The Lawyer. The survey was sent to 224 general counsels in the United Kingdom with in-house teams varying from one to 10 lawyers to those who have over 100 lawyers on staff. The survey was also sent to 24 CEOs and board members of British corporations to get their opinion on general counsel participation on a company’s board of directors.
