Varies company to company but at my company there’s a level within overall company (like director, VP, etc) and also a title within legal (like counsel, senior counsel, associate general counsel, general counsel etc). So I am a Director and Counsel. And my boss is a Managing Director and Senior Counsel.

I'm sr counsel and next level up is director then senior director followed by VP then sr VP (which unless I love to Europe will never happen)

Title isn’t meaningless but it also isn’t that important IMO. Your resume will look better with a higher title. That said, everyone knows there is significant variation across industries and companies such that one company’s Vice President is another’s Director, and a senior counsel in one place might be an AGC somewhere else.

This. I report to big GC but we have other roles beneath me that would, externally, look higher. Recruiters are always surprised to know I am #2.
