Barclays has appointed Clifford Chance (CC) finance partner Mark Harding as its new general counsel. Harding takes on one of the UK’s most high profile in-house roles, overseeing a global legal spend of around £100m, following the decision of Howard Trust to resign last August. Trust became head of legal at investment bank Schroders this month. Harding was the general counsel of UBS Warburg from 1996 until 2000 when he rejoined CC, where he had previously been a partner for nine years. His appointment follows a lengthy recruitment process by Barclays, which has taken more than nine months and has seen a number of high profile names linked with the role.
