Islamic Finance

Our banking and finance lawyers advise on Shari’a compliant financing transactions.

We establish special purpose vehicles issuing Sukuk and assist in structuring Murabaha transactions with entities in the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey.

We also advise on Shari’a compliant fund structures. These vehicles include limited partnerships issuing partnership interests, trusts issuing units, trust interests or certificates and protected cell companies.

The jurisdictions in which we operate have traditionally had strong ties with the Middle East and we have developed close relationships with clients and advisers in the region.

Our lawyers are experienced in advising on ground-breaking structures and they apply innovative thinking to overcome the more challenging aspects of such transactions.
