            Islamic Finance

            Our global Islamic Finance practice provides clients with innovative advice and solutions in relation to legal and regulatory aspects of Islamic Finance transactions. 

            Our experienced team of lawyers work with both investors and issuers/borrowers to deliver advice and solutions across the full spectrum of Islamic finance products based on the principles of Sharia'a.  We advise on a number of practice areas, including banking, capital markets, investment funds, derivatives and structured products and project finance. 

            We have worked with different Sharia'a committees and advisers to structure some of the most complex and innovative Islamic finance transactions representing a range of institutions including sovereigns, corporates and financial institutions. We also regularly host and participate in Islamic finance conferences and training workshops across the GCC region. 

            Our experience spans all types of Islamic finance transactions (including sukuk, murabaha, mudaraba musharaka bai salaam, ijara, istisna'a,). DWF’s Islamic finance team have extensive expertise and experience in both Islamic finance and conventional finance and are at the forefront of innovation as Islamic financing techniques and products evolve.
