The 2012 Islamic Finance news Law Supplement features a behind-the-scenes look at the legal fraternity and explores fundamental issues such as team size and pricing and how they influence client choices. We also gain insight on Decree 57, the new insolvency law in the UAE announced in the first half of the year. In our cover story, we take an objective look at the advantages and disadvantages of a Civil and Common legal system, and explore the jurisdictions which have felt the most impact from these arrangements in terms of adapting new tax structures for Islamic finance and allowing a seamless adoption of Islamic finance regulations and capital market products.

We also pay homage to the legal eagles who topped our 2012 Islamic Finance news Leading Lawyers and Law Firm polls: tirelessly working to improve structures and documentation, carrying the Islamic finance industry through the on-going restructuring exercises in the Gulf and successfully adapting to the changing tides of the financial markets. These lawyers and law firms have been instrumental in the growth of the Islamic finance industry, pushing for, and creating amendments for the incorporation of Islamic finance into their respective jurisdictions and allowing for greater access to Islamic finance deals.
