Barclays’ revolving doors bring another US GC to the fold

It’s all change in Barclays’ in-house team, as the company has appointed a new US general counsel after the departure of Carlos Pelayo.

Investment banking advisory service Dominick & Dominick’s general counsel Kevin McKay is taking on the role and starting work next Monday.

But he isn’t the only new face in the bank’s in-house team, after a series of departures have opened up spots for new high-profile hires. Gibson Dunn partner Mark Shelton replaced Judith Shepherd and took on the combined role of global investment bank general counsel and Americas general counsel.

Europe, Middle East and Asia GC Erica Handling and managing director of litigation and investigations Jonathan Peddie have yet to be replaced.
