    Hierarchy of titles below Associate and Assistant General Counsel

    A previous post explained the generally-observed seniority of the title Associate over Assistant (See my post of Nov. 8, 2005.) Can we carry that analysis of titles down a level or two?

    Among Counsel, Attorney, and Legal Counsel, the higher rank typically is accorded to Counsel or Legal Counsel – which is a less-common title. Above that, a promotion brings with it “Senior” at the start, viz. Senior Attorney, Senior Counsel, Senior Legal Counsel.

    In my experience, Chief Counsel indicates a rung above any other lawyer, and denotes primary responsibility for a business unit or function, but not the full panoply of responsibilities of a General Counsel (See my post of March 22, 2006 on the difference between CLO and GC.)
