In the for-profit sphere, MacLeod is Non-Executive Chairman of British based Griffin Law, co-founder of Brexit Advisory Services and Non-Executive Director at New York based Cornerstone Capital. At Cornerstone Capital he specialises in advising on tertiary level questions to determine external risk assessment in due-diligence investigations.

At Kings, he contributes to counter-extremism thinking and previously he led the ‘Beyond Shared Value Commission’ looking at ways to measure, in financial terms, external risks to corporations.

At the International Committee of the Red Cross Macleod served in the Balkans and Rwanda during the 1990s. He set up and ran Law of Armed Conflict training with military units in Rwanda and former Yugoslavia that resulted in a measurable decrease in civilian casualties.
