With a growth rate of 7.1%, Bangladesh is currently the fastest growing major economy. Although ongoing political unrest hampered investment and export activity throughout 2015, Bangladesh is gradually becoming a popular destination for foreign and local investors alike, a trend which has increased demand for transactional and regulatory advice in a global context from across the legal market. The agricultural, pharmaceutical and energy sectors saw significant activity throughout 2016, and efforts have been made to develop the jurisdiction’s growing IT sector. This time period also saw a significant number of major financings, PPP projects and disputes across multifarious sectors.

Full-service firms with strong domestic and international practices include A.S & Associates, The Law Counsel and Mahbub & Company.
