Membership is by invitation only and includes a wealth of benefits

From a custom-built member platform, to real-time data and surveys, to regular industry-leading conferences (any of which would typically cost thousands), membership in The L Suite’s PubGC community is all-encompassing and all-inclusive. That means that there are no additional fees or reimbursement requests — just an unsurpassed peer community that is carefully designed to accelerate your GC career. It’s the only membership that pays dividends.

This is not your basic Slack community or off-the-shelf software that delivers a one-size-fits-all experience. We custom-built our own community platform from the ground up to support the unique needs of our PubGC members.

Annual Compensation Surveys

Compensation data is highly-confidential and notoriously difficult to find. Our exclusive give-to-get annual comp surveys close that knowledge gap, with detailed analyses and dynamic breakdowns across the full range of relevant variables.

Topical Surveys

We go deep with insights and analysis on the core day-to-day topics that our members are grappling with. This includes everything from cloud transaction contract terms to privacy trends to cybersecurity best practices, and much more.

Benchmarking Surveys

We periodically survey our members to provide helpful benchmarking data on evergreen operating topics as well as rapidly emerging new situations. From legal department sizing to market condition adjustments (layoffs, budget cuts), and everything in between.

Resources to level-up your entire team

The value doesn’t stop at the C-Suite. Everyone on your team needs a peer community with curated resources to learn, grow, and accelerate your company’s velocity. That’s why we built two levels of supporting communities to upskill your whole legal department.


Our Deputy community is where the most accomplished #2s and similarly senior counsel gain the knowledge and skills to better support their GCs.

Our Counsel community is where the most ambitious rising in-house lawyers find answers, make valuable peer connections, and get better together.
