Robin Barclay KC
Member, Fountain Court Chambers
Robin Barclay KC is a member of Fountain Court Chambers, London. He is currently and has been repeatedly recognised by all the directories and his peers as a leading practitioner in international commercial civil and criminal fraud, bribery, money laundering, sanctions, market abuse and insider trading and a wide range of banking, financial services and regulatory and disciplinary investigations.
He was called to the Bar in 1999 and became a Queen’s Counsel in 2020.
His practice comprises mainly high-profile complex litigation and is heavily weighted towards points at which commercial conduct straddles the line between civil, regulatory and criminal law – and in particular cross-border work involving banking and the financial markets. As well as trials and investigations, Robin’s practice covers a range of interim applications and other matters, including civil and criminal search orders, freezing injunctions and restraint orders, directors’ duties and liabilities, shareholder and derivative actions, disclosure orders and document production notices, internal investigations, company announcements, corporate self-reports and deferred prosecution agreements, unexplained wealth orders, immunity agreements, extradition, legal privilege, privacy and confidentiality, sanctions and criminal confiscation.
Robin is co-author of the leading book on the UK Bribery Act 2010 published by LexisNexis.
