 Law Firm Overview

Islam and Associates was established in 1997 by the Principal of the office Mr. Mufassil MM Islam. The firm started as a small law office specialising in Immigration and civil matters. The firm grew in time and became the forerunner in genuine Immigration practice in Bangladesh. There are many Immigration consultants in Bangladesh who are in practice claiming to be ex-embassy staffs and clients fall trap to their lucrative and flashy advertisements. But as Immigration is a very complicated and complex field of law and as per the law of the land, anybody who is not a lawyer cannot advise clients in legal matters, these consultants are definitely and clearly in violation of Bar Council regulations. There are also tendencies to bring lawyers from abroad in pursuit of potential clients by arranging seminars and direct assessments for which the clients do often pay huge sums. But foreign lawyers should not and may not advise people of our country as that will be in violation of Bar rules of Bangladesh. Foreign lawyers may advise only the lawyers of Bangladesh who in turn may advise our citizens accordingly. Foreign lawyers may not advise and may not come to Bangladesh without due work-permit or business permit. Time has come for truly trained lawyers to assist clients in Immigration matters. Our firm boasts in having staffs trained abroad in related fields of law which include trainings from recognised institutions and practical experiences from leading foreign and native law offices. Experiences in working embassies cannot be the criteria of working in Immigration matters as embassies do not work with complicated and complex appeal and application issues, rather law offices work in conjunction with Home Offices or Immigration Departments.

The firm has a lineage of lawyers dating back many years. Advocate Mumtaz Uddin Ahmed, great-grand-father of Mr. Mufassil M M Islam was a leading civil lawyer among the Muslim community of East Bengal during the early 1930s and 1940s. Advocate K M Sadequr Rahman, grandfather of Mr. Islam was a leading corporate practitioner of East Pakistan who established Highspeed Navigation Company, the largest shipping company in the country. Advocate Nazrul Islam, father of Mr. Mufassil Islam stood first in his law exams and earned prominence in law related publications including 'Law of Evidence'. Mr. Nazrul Islam was also a lecturer at Central Law College, the leading law college in Bangladesh.

Mr. Mufassil Islam had his LL.B. (Hons) and LL.M degrees from Dhaka University, the most prestigious university in Bangladesh and had innumerable trainings from recognised institutions from around the world which include trainings from Harvard University in Internet Law and trainings on Immigration matters from Central Law Training in England. Mr. Islam also received certificate from Kensington University in USA. Mr. Islam has long experience of working as an Immigration Caseworker and a Consultant in USA and UK. His experiences include working for Neil Weinrib, PC, the leading law office in Immigration matters in USA as a Foreign Law Consultant and working for Ashley Bean & Co Solicitors in England.

Our firm works with syndicate of lawyers working for leading law offices around the world and we have gained trust and prestige among our clientele. We believe in honest, sincere and fast remedies for our clients and believe in growth with our clients' successes.

As a note, this law relates to the control of governmental power, being the body of general principles which govern the exercise of powers and duties by public authorities. This piece of law results from the constitutional mandate as enshrined in Article 27 of the Constitution of our country.

Their reputation is envious and they have a huge number of junior followed by their experience. Such a team of documentation expert deals with every paper work of a company. We do not follow the Memorandum of Association in a casual mode. We focus on every clause of the memorandum.

- Construction Litigation

Bangladesh has a huge market of construction and the land development business. Scarcity of land has been the main factor for huge numbers of litigations evolving the construction and land development business. Our construction practice focuses upon complex construction, engineering, and architectural disputes that have every characteristic necessary to make a legal proceeding complicated, expensive and frustrating—thousands of documents, numerous fact witnesses, technical issues that are hard to simplify and explain, multiple parties and an array of lay and expert witnesses grappling with it all. Our success in such cases is due in large part to our ability to bring order to the morass of complex construction litigation.

We have brilliant lawyers who have noticeable reputation in the field of Family law, especially when the dispute is regarding Dower, Divorce, Maintenance, restitution of conjugal life and of course about custody of child. In a case of Dower, divorce or maintenance or custody of child, we take every case with utmost confidentiality. We do not unnecessarily disclose the identity of our clients in this regard. Because, we value your social standing as well as the consequences it may invite.

- Government Contracts Litigation

Dispute resolution of government contract controversies depends on specialized forums and a particularized body of law; yet success depends on litigation strategies used in commercial litigation. In other words, winning government contracts litigation should involve a felicitous blending of special knowledge and general litigation expertise. Our firm is expert in both skills. Our representations of government contractors have involved virtually all the substantive issues arising out of doing business with the government. Such issues come into play both in lawsuits involving government agencies directly and in disputes between commercial parties, such as subcontractors and prime contractors, in which the relationship derives from a government contract and its use of "flow-down" provisions.

- Insurance and Reinsurance Litigation

Our lawyers have extensive experience litigating and arbitrating on behalf of insurers, managing general agents, and reinsurers in complex, high-stakes disputes. We offer our clients sophisticated industry knowledge as well as the trial and arbitration talent that built our firm’s reputation as the country’s premier business litigation firm.

Our insurance client list includes most prominent insurance companies of Bangladesh. Through some significant victories and retentions, we have rapidly built a reputation as one of the top firms in the market for the most complex and high value insurance litigation matters.

- Insurance Recovery

In many cases, we have obtained favorable resolutions for our clients before the commencement of litigation.

In today’s global marketplace, identifying, developing and protecting intellectual property (IP) rights is crucial in establishing and growing a successful business. We provide all kind of IP related legal solutions to our clients with trademark, copyright, patent and trade secret legal issues. From the inception of an idea to the global marketing of products, our lawyers seek to partner with clients to anticipate and minimize future conflicts while maximizing present opportunities.

We have represented employers and employees in many employment cases including sexual harassment, race discrimination and retaliation unlawful discharge, termination, compensation for injury caused by accident, wage & payment issues and also the labour strike, labour dispute and employee retaining related cases. Although we are proud of our trial record, our primary goal is to dispose of cases by dispositive motion. We also recognize that sometimes our clients' best interests are served by settling cases. Our track record of consistently obtaining defense verdicts is well-known among members of the plaintiffs' bar, which we believe substantially reduces the amounts of money our clients pay in settlement.

- Entertainment and Media Litigation

We represent and have represented companies involved in all phases of the real estate business, including owners, sellers, purchasers, developers, lenders, borrowers, joint venture partners, commercial landlords and tenants, homeowners' associations, syndicates, investors and brokers.

- Search For The Genuineness Of The Documents Relating To Land

For the first time ever, our chamber has introduced a new practice to facilitate the demands of our clients. The practice is to provide our client with the genuineness of any landed property’s documents. From the British colonial period, it has been observed that the land distribution system is a complicated process which has a direct attachment to transferability. A land has been transferred several times. Someone bought a landed property, and then sold it out to another and then he sold it to another and then he gifted the property to another, and then his inheritors got the property and this process is continuing and it will. In such a long journey of transferability the documents relating to a landed property often seems or found to be forged at the interest of a vested quarter. Though several attempts have been taken to up date the record of the landed property but failed to meet the expectation. In fact, there has been a few changes in the proceeding. But in literal sense no improvement has been explored in the distribution system, precisely, in recording system of the landed property.

- Securities Litigation

In recent years, the firm has been involved in many of the most high-profile securities cases in the nation, including the barrage of stock option and executive compensation investigations. We have litigated virtually every type of securities case, including fraud and non-disclosure cases under blue-sky laws, merger and proxy disputes, "all holders/best price" rule litigation, corporate governance litigation, and insider trading and option disputes, including numerous derivative and class action claims in these areas. We are currently handling over a dozen cases arising out of the meltdown of the auction rate securities and mortgage-backed securities markets. We have represented about 500 companies, investment banks, accountants, directors, officers, institutional investors, hedge funds, indemnities, financial advisors, special committees, and broker-dealers in federal and state courts throughout the country, in industries ranging from securities, defense, banking and insurance to entertainment, pharmaceuticals, software and computing.

- Sports Litigation

Our firm has comprehensive knowledge and experience in all aspects of litigation involving the sports industry. We have a remarkable track record in state court trials and appeals, as well as before various domestic and international arbitration tribunals and government agencies. Although proud of our litigation record, we also understand the importance of exploring alternatives to litigation, and we have achieved outstanding levels of success in the earliest phases of legal disputes.

- Taxation

Our firm has experts in Taxation Litigation especially in Corporate Taxation matters. The firm is consultant to a number of companies in Bangladesh for tax matters. Our Tax attorneys represent taxpayers in Tax Court and help them understand the complicated and confusing aspects of tax law. They represent taxpayers at all stages of tax controversies.

- Labour Law

The Lawyers & Jurist is blessed with some of lawyers who are fortunate to practice with the precursory lawyer in labor law practice in Bangladesh. While our chamber has crossed a long tenure of practice we have been enriched in dealing with disputes regulated by Labour laws of bangladesh-2006. The Bangladesh Labour Code-2006. Our chamber has a remarkable presence in Labour Court as well as Labour Appellate Tribunal. The issues we deal with mostly cover every segment of labour law, including, Health and safety, Anti-discrimination, Unfair dismissal, Child labour, Trade unions, Strikes, Lay-out, Service Benefit, Termination, Dismissal and misconduct, Wages and compensation, etc.
