Banking and Financing
We advise financial institutions, both domestic and international, on laws relating to the supervision by Bangladesh Bank (the central bank), government sanctions and regulations, the international payment system as well as actions and opinions on all types of payment instruments (including documentary credits, performance bonds, bills of exchange and other negotiable instruments), data protection security documents (including security sharing, charges, mortgages and guarantees) and foreign exchange transactions (including repo and ISDA documents). The firm routinely conducts comprehensive legal audits of corporate lending and security documents for banks including branches of foreign banks. Recent work includes review of documents and negotiations on behalf of a corporate client for a syndication of domestic and international borrowing, involving refinancing and new financing.
The firm also advises bank and financial institutions on loan recovery and other regular business operations.
