Our debt finance practice regularly advises borrowers and lenders on a variety of international and domestic financing transactions (conventional and Islamic), including acquisition, real estate and project finance.  In addition, we have advised on equipment and aircraft leasing transactions and a variety of capital markets transactions ranging from sukuk issuances to securitisations of automobile receivables.  Recently we have been involved in a number of major GCC debt restructurings and related transactions.  We have regular contact with the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA) and advise a broad base of domestic and multinational clients on Saudi Arabian banking regulations, policies and compliance issues.

This expertise, alongside our in-depth knowledge of the legal entities and structures favoured by Islamic banks and Shari'ah scholars in the Middle East, is particularly appreciated by our clients.
