Nadim Khan is head of Herbert Smith’s global Islamic finance
group. He has over 10 years’ on-the-ground experience in the
Middle East and has advised on a number of leading Islamic
financing transactions, both within and outside the region.
He has also advised on the structuring and development of
a number of first-of-their-kind Islamic financing products.
Highlights of Mr Khan’s recent work include advising the
mandated lead arrangers on the multi-sourced receipts-based
financing of the Salik toll road system in Dubai, which involved
a uniquely structured Islamic tranche. He advised Qatar Islamic
Bank on its inaugural US dollar-denominated
sukuk
issuance,
which raised $750 million. Mr Khan also acted for Millennium
Private Equity on the first
sukuk
financing for a UK corporate,
using the
sukuk
as a tool to implement a private equity
investment in International Innovative Technologies, a
manufacturer of industrial milling machines in Northeast
England.
