Jon Barclay is a leader in his field and has expertise in commercial litigation, fraud and asset tracing, corporate disputes and insolvency, trusts, regulatory and compliance issues.
Jon’s arrival adds to our litigation capabilities across the Channel Islands. He joins an expanding litigation team and he will work closely with Alasdair Davidson, our experienced litigation partner in Guernsey.
Described by the leading legal directories as ‘a skilful litigator with a fine reputation’ and as ‘a talented accomplished lawyer who has significant expertise in asset tracing and freezing injunctions’, Jon was called to the English Bar in 1999 and practised in the Chancery and Commercial Group at No.5 Chambers.

On his move to Bedell Cristin, Jon remarked:
‘Bedell Cristin is highly regarded by its peers and clients so this is an extremely exciting move for me. I am particularly looking forward to working with the team to further develop the Channel Islands litigation offering.’
