Islamic Finance lawyers

Newcomers to Islamic Finance and existing participants alike face a whole host of challenges that they must successfully navigate to structure, document and complete transactions in accordance with Shariah principles. These challenges include appropriately allocating legal, commercial and Shariah risks between parties and ensuring that transactions, products and services which purport to be Shariah compliant do not breach any Shariah prohibitions.

Our experts can help you deal with the unique challenges you face as a party to a Shariah compliant transaction and are experienced in advising on all Shariah compliant structures, including Ijara, Istisna’a, Manafa’a, Mudarabah, Murabaha, Musharaka, Tawarruq and Wakala.  We advise across a whole host of products and services including real estate finance, asset finance, trade finance, project finance and debt restructurings.

Our clients range from multilateral development banks to wholesale and retail banks, as well as private equity houses and large corporates; whether Shariah compliant or not. They all have one thing in common: they come to us because we help them navigate the nuances of Shariah compliant financings whilst always being cognisant of their needs.

We aim to simplify concepts that can often be complex and pro-actively seek to assist our clients by providing solutions to the legal, commercial and Shariah problems they may be facing.
