Who we help: Banks, corporates, sponsors and individuals
We regularly give expert legal advice on Islamic finance throughout all stages of a transaction to a wide range of clients, including:
This expert advice includes our considerable experience in advising raising capital, Shariah-compliant funds and the structuring of deals.

Our solicitor at Harper James, Sarah, was really effective with the time over the phone and used the time to provide us with direct advice – no faff and her advice really helped us to do the next steps. She followed up quickly and delivered the document really quickly too, it is fantastic to have lawyers that are reliable and are responsive too. I am very happy with our experience with Harper James!
