Foot Anstey LLP wins contracts from Middle East by specialising in Islamic finance

<p>Foot Anstey LLP, a South West law firm, is winning valuable contracts from the Middle East by specialising in Islamic finance. The firm, which has five offices across the South West regi&oacute;n, is one of very few firms in the UK to be able to arrange finance deals in accordance with Islamic law. The Islamic finance team at Foot Anstey has recently advised Islamic banks and Middle Eastern investors on a range of high value and complex transactions. They have created structures to allow conventional and Islamic financiers to work together. Foot Anstey has already advised several Middle Eastern investors on Islamic finance deals. Although most of its business has been in the Middle East, where there is still potential growth, the firm is now looking to expand into South East Asia as well.</p>
