Our lawyers understand the sophisticated structures of Islamic finance

Our global Islamic team is well versed in the fundamental conventions and legal techniques of this form of finance. We deliver solutions across our core sectors in accordance with the principles and values of Islam.

Financial institutions, hedge funds and conventional institutional investors increasingly require experienced lawyers in order to invest in Islamic financial products. Our expertise extends across Islamic insurance (Takaful), and all types of Islamic financing, including trade finance, Islamic banking and private debt securities and Islamic capital markets.

Islamic finance is thriving, with Shariah compliant securities issuances growing at rates as high as 25% per annum and an estimated global worth in billions of dollars. The Islamic finance markets are commanding the international finance community's interest.
