Islamic finance has of late gained greater appreciation amongst the masses, particularly in the Middle East. The sector continues to grow in international markets and our attorneys have successfully advised conventional banks to expand their expertise in this area. With a clearer market target and better returns, Islamic finance is expected to grow in the coming years.

STA attorneys advise on major aspects of Islamic finance including takaful (insurance), murabaha, Istisna, ijara and listing of sukuk on Dubai International Financial Exchange (DIFX). We advise financial institutions on the advantages that this field offers to the traditional banking system. Islamic finance is a complex field and requires the expertise and application of shariah principles. Our attorneys ensure that the best international practices and standards are taken into account when maintaining shariah compliance.
