Banking & Finance

Our multidisciplinary legal team has a long standing history in the banking and finance sectors in advising national and international banks, who are based in the UAE. Pivoting off of such expertise, we advise on the full spectrum of banking and financial matters ranging from financial regulation, product development, cross border finance transactions, and structured finance, and both local and international companies on their finance in both conventional and Islamic transactions and litigation and banking.

Our team has unparalleled depth and breadth of expertise advising prominent financial institutions, borrowers, and sponsors across our regional network on the restructuring, documentation and negotiation of finance transactions (whether Islamic or conventional).

A significant component of our expertise in this area comes from our deep understanding of the UAE market, its policies, procedures, and guidelines.

  • compliance and anti-money laundering,
  • syndicated and bilateral lending transactions,
