Clifford Chance, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Latham & Watkins have taken key roles on Qatar Holdings’ sell-off of part of its stake in Barclays Bank.

The sale — which amounts to about 50 percent of the warrants the Middle East investment company acquired last October — could raise in the region of 1.4 billion pounds ($2.3 billion), 750 million pounds ($1.2 billion) of which will be paid to Barclays.
