Barclay, who qualified in 1998 and made partner in 2005, specialises in succession and tax and estate planning and is also a member of the firm’s probate group. He also has a reputable expertise in the niche field of trust in civil and Sharia law countries and in UK pre-entry planning for non-domiciled clients. He advises entrepreneurs and HNW individuals both in the UK and abroad.

Barclay has experience with high-profile clients: In 2020 he was part of a team that advised the family office of Lord Alliance CBE and his son on their cornerstone investment in a £100m fundraising by N Brown Group plc.
