Michael J.T. McMillen has joined Fulbright & Jaworski and will head the firm’s Islamic finance practice. “Michael brings a vast knowledge of Islamic financing that is highly compatible with our existing finance and projects practices and the current work we are doing in the Middle East,” Steven B. Pfeiffer, chairman of the firm’s executive committee, said in a news release. “We have expanded our global projects practice in order to offer our clients the most comprehensive project finance counseling possible. Michael’s experience in Islamic finance will greatly benefit our clients.” McMillen has focused on Islamic finance for years and teaches a course on the topic at University of Pennsylvania Law School. He also chairs the Islamic Law Forum, a division of the International Law Section of the American Bar Association. McMillen has been extensively involved with Shari’ah scholars and supervisory boards in the development and issuance of approvals for Islamic finance products, structures and transactions around the globe. His Islamic finance work includes real estate, project finance and private equity projects, as well as Islamic bonds and asset securitizations, investment funds, bankruptcy funds, index-tracking funds, derivatives and new product development. McMillen, who joins the corporate practice group as a partner, will work primarily from Fulbright’s New York and Middle East locations in Riyadh and Dubai and will also spend time in London. Fulbright & Jaworski has nearly 1,000 lawyers in 16 worldwide locations.
