Banking, finance and capital markets in Qatar
For some, Al Tamimi & Company In Association with Adv. Mohammed Al Marri is the 'go-to firm for finance matters in Doha', particularly in the areas of debt capital markets (DCM) and aviation financing. A prime example of the team's work in the DCM space was advising on Masraf Al Rayan's $2bn sukuk programme. Practice head Matthew Heaton advises on aircraft financing, but is also skilled in acquisition, leverage, corporate and real estate financing. Rafiq Jaffer, who is based in Dubai, primarily leads on DCM matters.
‘Matthew Heaton is responsive and user-friendly. I enjoy working with him.’
