Latham’s Islamic Finance Practice helps governments, corporations, banks, sponsors, export credit agencies, investment funds, and other investors successfully execute Shari’ah-compliant transactions across the Middle East, the United States, Asia, and Europe.
We collaborate across a number of core practice areas, including banking, project finance, derivatives, capital markets, restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, investment funds, and dispute resolution to deliver innovative structures that meet the needs of investors and clients.
We have structured groundbreaking transactions and were the first movers in a number of the most widely used Islamic financing products in the market today. We can develop, document, and negotiate all of the most common structures, including murabaha, mudaraba, ijara, wakala, musharaka, istithmar, manafa, and istisna — whether on a standalone basis, in combination with other products, on a wholly Islamic basis, or as a multi-tranche offering with conventional financing arrangements. Our prominence in the sukuk market is grounded in constantly evolving commercial and regulatory insights drawn from both our local and global vantage points, with lawyers based across the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and the US.
