What corporate practice areas lead to the highest paying in-house positions? What types of in-house positions pay the most?

The biggest pay difference is likely industry and company type. Large banks and funds are likely to pay substantially more than industries like retail. F500 are likely to pay more than a small-cap company or startup. M&A and tax roles are likely to be on the higher side. Compliance is likely to be on the lower side.

If you are just starting to think about biglaw practice, I wouldn't make in-house pay your biggest concern. Your biggest concern should be learning a practice area that you enjoy (well, relatively speaking :lol: )
