Islamic Finance

Volaw has worked with financial institutions and private clients located in the Middle East since the early 1980s and this geographic area is an important part of Volaw’s business.

Our specialist team has gained considerable knowledge and expertise in dealing with Shari’a-compliant financial structures for collective investment funds, property financing structures and family estate planning purposes. We have particular expertise in the creation of specialist investment vehicles aimed at Middle Eastern institutions and investors and the issue of Shari’a-compliant Sukuk.

In partnership with our colleagues at Voisin, who have Advocates registered to represent their clients in the DIFC Courts, we have also been involved in pioneering Islamic securitisation deals.
