  • MDH did a great job and showed GCs across the globe how legal teams ought to be led. I hope he finds retirement boring and pops up somewhere else instead, because otherwise the legal world will be a duller place without him. It will be interesting to see whether - as always assumed - Judith Shepherd succeeds him or whether she will be deemed to be 'tainted' as having been part of the 'Old Guard'.

  • I should imagine Harding would want to keep his 'next movements' entirely private. His next move should be intriguing though

  • So this guy was in charge of legal and compliance during the whole financial crisis and the LIBOR scandal at Barclays? He must be a superb GC, he must have really kept his eye on the compliance ball and avoided any reputational harm or legal claims for his bank. Surprised he hasn't been knighted already.

  • He was also in charge in 2010 when Barclays was fined $298 million and entered into a deferred prosecution agreement with the US Justice Department over allegations that Barclays illegally engaged in financial transactions with banks in Cuba, Iran, Libya, Sudan and Burma.

  • Mark Harding is a legend... to have a job like that must require real sacrifice and a life time of hard work... I hope he enjoys his retirement and reckon that he should definitely be knighted for his contributions to the legal world and endeavours to work ethically in all situations.
