As a result of the significant influx of investment entering the UK property market from the Muslim world, Islamic Finance products have become increasingly popular. Our Islamic Finance specialists provide comprehensive legal advice to both investors and lenders their debt and equity products comply with Sharia principles.
We act for banks and borrowers where Sharia compliant finance is required to ensure that this does not contravene the requirements of the proposed Sharia financing or investment.
We are familiar with the most commonly used commodity murabaha structure, Ijara lease structure and the diminishing musharakah structures. We assist our clients to ensure that
the commercial terms are reflected in the financing and that in practical terms, the requirements can be implemented.
Our Islamic Finance practice works alongside our Real Estate Finance team and Corporate Finance team and our depth of expertise in these areas ensures that our clients’ interest are taken into account and are well-protected in any Sharia compliant products or services which they deliver or participate in.
