Law firms

Private and public Islamic Finance investors are now seeking a truly global solution to allow for the diversification of their investments. They require a provider of legal services which can handle:

  • outbound investments
  • inbound investments
  • offshore investments

No traditional law firm can possibly provide a team of legal experts active in:

  • outbound countries such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, etc.
  • inbound countries such as the G20 countries, as well as emerging markets like India, China, Brazil, etc.
  • offshore territories such as Jersey, Guernsey, Malta, Isle of Man, BVI, Mauritius, and others, that offer tax structuring.

Corporations, banks, funds, private and public investors are seeking a broader network. They want to be serviced on a global and on a regional scale. They are looking to do business in all major centres and seek a true one-stop shop.

On top of these geographical constraints, financial markets are increasingly producing deals combining both conventional and Islamic aspects. They require two sets of expertise and multi-jurisdictional access.

Property-based lending, project finance & infrastructure projects require experience from true Islamic Finance specialists.

With ISFIN, you will be serviced by expert legal practitioners with a track-record and experience in banking, finance and tax gained from working directly on Islamic Finance files. You will also be serviced by well-established lawyers in your local jurisdictions with access to a global/worldwide network of specialists and also by skilled individuals in the country of origin, the target country of the investment and off-shore or on-shore jurisdictions providing support for the deal.

ISFIN does not appoint one exclusive law firm in England & Wales. If you require any LEGAL contact in London, we have access to the most prominent UK law firms and could formulate recommendations.
