  • Tarek is an excellent lawyer and a proper gentleman. This is a real coup for Freshfields who would greatly benefit from his charm and experience.

  • Islamic Finance is nothing but a big joke, rather its a scam, which only benefits few investment bankers, lawyers and uneducated clerics who tend to shower their blessings on sharia complaint instruments being hired as a retainer. End of the day, the common Muslims who invest are the sufferers. This is not Islam, this is fraud !!

  • An excellent choice. Islamic finance is a strong and viable alternative to other financial systems and I am sure it will prove its success in the current global situation.

    Yes, but if there is money there, then you will find lawyers.

  • If Islamic finance is so important to Freshfields why didn't they hire at partner level? Another example of Freshfields' ignorance about the banking/finance sector.
