Banking & Finance

As one of the most resilient and fastest-growing sectors in the Kingdom, banks and financial institutions face an array of challenges when navigating the regulatory minefield that governs them. Having acted for a plethora of clients in this sector, including major international banks such as Barclays, Bank of America and Lloyds Bank, our Banking and Finance Department is a trusted partner that keeps clients up-to-date and compliant with the latest laws and regulations. Our team of experts also facilitates our clients’ business and helps with the development of new financial products. 

Our experience includes advising clients on all matters relating to asset finance, corporate lending, derivatives and structured finance, fintech, Islamic finance, syndicated lending, leveraged and acquisition finance, and project and real estate finance. Moreover, we regularly provide training, workshops and seminars, both locally and internationally, on all issues relating to anti-money laundering and terrorism financing. This is not to mention that we actively provide guidance on matters relating to financial inclusion by virtue of our diverse client base containing many major non-for-profit organizations. 

As a testament to our expertise and proven track record in this sector, regulatory bodies often request our advice and intel when drafting proposed laws and frameworks.
