The number of General Counsel appointments at FTSE 100 companies has declined from 13 in 2015 to just 7 last year. And this trend looks set to continue; in the first 10 months of 2017 there have been just 2 appointments. It is a trend that is mirrored, albeit less starkly, in the FTSE 250 with General Counsel appointments down from 18 in 2015 to 16 in 2016.
