An Innovative Approach
Latham’s global Islamic finance lawyers have extensive Islamic finance experience across the core practice areas of banking, project finance, capital markets, restructuring, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), investment funds and dispute resolution. The firm's lawyers advise corporations, governments, banks, sponsors, export credit agencies, investment funds and other investors on Shari’ah-compliant transactions in the Middle East, Europe, United States and Asia.
Latham lawyers have a reputation for innovation and have been involved in the development of ground-breaking Islamic finance transactions globally. Recognized in the leading directories as world-class practitioners in the Islamic finance field, the firm's lawyers regularly participate and host Islamic finance workshops and conferences and have authored articles and books on topical issues in Islamic finance. Most recently, Latham’s Dubai and London-based partner Craig Nethercott co-edited and contributed to Islamic Finance Law and Practice, a practical and commercial guide to the fundamental principles of Islamic finance and their application to Islamic finance transactions, published in March 2012 by the Oxford University Press.
