Our Islamic Finance practice is one of the pioneering and leading teams in Singapore, having achieved a number of firsts in the country including the first musharaka bond issue, the first publicly traded Shariah compliant real estate investment trust fund, and the first sukuk wakalah. In addition, we advised on the first sukuk programme established by a Singapore corporation and the first sukuk programme established by a Singapore statutory board. Notably, we were the first Singapore law firm to win an Islamic finance firm award on a global basis, with many of our Islamic finance transactions also having won awards in Singapore and internationally.

Our cross-disciplinary practice comprises some of the leading practitioners in their respective fields. We work closely with regulators and government departments and agencies as well as Islamic finance specialists to advise our clients on all relevant aspects of banking, capital markets, investment funds, property, and trust structures and to address the various tax and regulatory and compliance issues that have to be considered in structuring innovative and commercially practical Islamic financing products and solutions.

We regularly act for and advise leading Islamic financial institutions, large local and multinational corporations, funds, real estate investment trusts and business trusts.
