Get the wort to yeast pitching temp in as short a time as possible.
Get a good hot break at the beginning of the boil.
Use Irish moss.
Cold crash before bottling.
Using fining agents.
Use a highly flocculating yeast.
These are just a few.

you can put the fermenter in a cold - around 34 degree - place for a few days/weeks/months and get very clear beer,

you can add a packet of dissolved gelatin per 5 gallons of beer and let it sit for a few days, combining this with the above technique would work very well

you can just let it sit, for a long time, and it will clear out.

Is this beer cloudy? Muddy? is this protein issues? There is no cure all except maybe polyclar but different "stuff" in the beer is caused by different things. Hot break, cold break, grain fines, yeast etc....

Cheers

What I was thinking. When did you brew this? A good barleywine should age for months so it will likely clear on it's own. Cellar temps would be nice, although we don't all have that luxury.
