Financial storm and Sharia finance - the lawyers' view

Spending a year within the perfect financial storm has been an interesting ride for the participating lawyers, as documented in this bumper Special Report.
Leveraged lending was one of the first casualties, swiftly followed by all other lending. Meanwhile, the capital markets were parched and CDO practically turned into a financial pariah. But who better to restructure a burning vehicle than the lawyers who built it?
The sharia markets appeared to many a less giddy antidote to the sky-high financial structures. But, as one of our reports shows, the appetite for sharia is growing not just in the City, one of the traditional gateways to the Islamic financial world.
And then, most recently, derivatives lawyers found themselves in demand to untangle the strings for clients who did not quite know what they had let themselves in for when they signed up with Lehman.
Come rain or shine, finance lawyers will not be going home just yet.
