Islamic finance in Jordan

Islamic finance, Iraq

Islamic finance has become increasingly important throughout the world as transactions become more globalised and funding is sought from lenders in the Middle East region. At Eversheds Sutherland we have long recognised this trend and created a team of experts in our Iraq offices who can manage the issues involved on your behalf.

Quality and experience in Islamic finance

Our Islamic finance group in Baghdad and Erbil have experience advising on Islamic finance in the Middle East and around the world. We provide Islamic finance advice to lenders and borrowers in connection with a range of Shari’ah compliant products and transactions.

Our experience covers all areas of Islamic finance and we regularly work with leading Islamic financial institutions, conventional banks and corporates to develop Shari’ah compliant products. Our dispute resolution lawyers have experience of acting for financial institutions in disputes arising from such products.

Going beyond the law, we actively look for ways in which we can effect introductions and facilitate your business opportunities through our significant network of national and regional and international contacts. We understand that cost certainty is a key issue in an increasingly competitive world. In response, our global Islamic finance team have developed a unique approach to large projects and deals called DealTrack. This gives you better project management, greater control and predictability, allowing you to reduce workload, minimise disruption and get the best project outcome, on time and within budget.

We also have a range of award winning pricing models and solutions designed to deliver consistent approach and predictability of both timing and costs with total transparency, so you are involved and informed at all stages of the transaction.
