With Brexit coming fast upon us, attention is being focused on London’s role as a centre for Islamic Finance. This Briefing will provide an overview of how Islamic Finance works and what the future might hold for its growth or development in the UK. We will also look at some important recent judgments in the English courts dealing with the bank’s duty of care in arranging Islamic finance transactions and the validity of ancillary English-law governed agreements where the underlying transaction may be invalid.
Druces LLP’s Islamic Finance team was formed in 2011. We act for a number of well-known Islamic finance providers and the team’s growing reputation is recognised in Legal 500, as a leading firm in the sector.
Who should attend:
Bankers and in-house lawyers practising in Islamic Finance or simply wanting to know more.
