The gender pay gap for U.S.-based general counsel is widening, according to a new report. 

Equilar’s latest General Counsel Pay Trends study shows that male GCs earned 18.6% more than their female counterparts—the largest pay discrepancy since Equilar began studying GC wages in 2014. 

The report crunches pay data for top lawyers and named executive officers at Equilar 500 companies, a revenue-based index of publicly traded companies in the U.S. The latest wage statistics are based on Securities and Exchange Commission filings from companies that ended the fiscal year between March 2018 and February 2019.
