Islamic Finance

Walkers' Islamic finance team is made up of dedicated banking and finance lawyers who are very experienced advising on the offshore elements of transactions that are tailored to meet the requirements of Shari'ah principles.

We provide Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey law advice on both conventional finance transactions and Islamic finance transactions including:

  • Murabaha;
  • Mudaraba;
  • Ijara; and
  • Sukuk

We regularly act for both conventional and Shari'ah compliant financial institutions on the offshore aspects of transactions involving conventional and Islamic finance.

We are also highly experienced in advising on the establishment of a broad range of Shari'ah-compliant investment structures, often working closely with onshore counsel and Shari'ah advisors to ensure that the offshore investment structure meets local law and regulatory requirements as well as the requirements of Shari'ah.
