Getting an in-house advantage

BarkerGilmore has announced the general counsel advantages for transforming how legal leaders fast-track success.


Boutique law firm BarkerGilmore has created GC Advantages, a professional community founded by corporate legal leaders for corporate legal leaders, which aims to encourage collaboration, advance careers, and improve the bottom line. 

Peer network

General Counsel and law department leaders are engaging with their peers to network and exchange ideas in virtual, private, convenient, real-time forums that are delivered on a video platform. Using decades of experience serving in some of the world’s top companies, BarkerGilmore’s Senior Advisors designed the GC Advantages to meet the professional development needs of today’s legal leaders.  Members tackle complex leadership, C-suite, and board issues with their peers, while gaining the insight and perspective of experienced and sophisticated advisors.

Actionable ideas

In making the announcement, Robert Barker, managing partner of BarkerGilmore, explained, “The GC Advantages is a 21st century model for professional associations that meets the needs of today’s busy legal leaders. An impressive roster of members, representing top companies from all industries, meet in real-time forums to discuss critical issues with those who have similar experience and can share actionable ideas.  At the same time, members are broadening their professional network.  The GC Advantages encourages and supports legal innovators from mid-sized and Fortune 500 companies to excel as the strategic advisors and business partners that today’s corporate world demands.”  Membership consideration in the GC Advantages can be found here.
