Fillip Partners formed its roots in 2014, establishing itself as a boutique legal and investment advisory firm based in Dhaka. The firm was organised by a team of four young, energetic professionals, two being lawyers and the other two finance professionals. Since its inception 6 years ago, the firm has come along way and expanded its services in various areas of law and financial services, advising clients in different industrial sectors. The firm serves a niche clientele within select industries/sectors for now, however it is inching towards and gradually developing  its scope of transactional services to cater to a wider audience. The firm has inked strategic relationships with various international law firms in India, Germany, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore, including local litigation firms such as Mohsen & Mohsen and Lex Corner to give its clients control over its dispute and the manner in which they intend to resolve it.

The firm works extensively in the power, banking, finance, hospitality, healthcare, ICT and telecommunications sector and specialises in general corporate, company and regulatory law.

In a very short span of time the firm partners have organised a formidable team and rendered outstanding advisory and transactional services to various local and international clients. The firm today works with the largest Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, including Fortune 500 companies and local blue chip firms .

The firms’ vision is to continue building extra-ordinary teams, expand practice areas and render top quality services to its clients, incorporating technology along the way. The goal is to excel in each sector the firm serves and eventually make the legal services department, a full-service firm in the near future. For now, however, it is sharply focused on serving its old and new clients alike, with unparalleled and custom -out of the box- solutions, best suited to the client, taking into account market intel and shifts in law and policy.

Fillip Partners has made a mark in investment advisory and has served clients coming to the shores of Bangladesh with investments in infrastructure, hospitality, healthcare, manufacturing among others; in the process the firm has developed a niche practice with the view to serving clients looking to invest in large infrastructure projects wade through the regulatory requirements and to help them better strategise their engagements with the government departments.
