At Directus our mission or unique skill is to allow the client access to the key advisers who can deliver the clients objective. The complex and multi-faceted area of Islamic Finance is one of the specialist areas that our Managing Partner has substantial expertise in having worked in several Islamic jurisdictions having been employed with an international law firm early in his career, and subsequently completed substantial transactions in respect of various models of Islamic Financing those of which include Ijara, Murabaha & Mudarabah agreements.
The benefit of using a firm and or specialists who have been exposed to the wide-ranging nature of Islamic Finance and Banking is that unlike multinational Law Firms whose specialists Banking sections do not exclusively focus or engage in such transactions frequently, there is a unique understanding of the practical and conceptual issues associated with these transactions.
It is important for the models not to be treated merely as academic concepts because in the real commercial world it is the practical knowledge and application of skills that will be valuable for any client.
