Corporate and Commercial Law:


Overview of Corporate Law

Corporate law in Bangladesh governs the formation, operation, and dissolution of companies and other corporate entities. The Companies Act, 1994, regulates corporate governance, shareholder rights, and the duties of directors and officers. This legal framework aims to promote transparency, accountability, and investor confidence in corporate activities.


Company Formation and Compliance

Establishing a company in Bangladesh involves several legal procedures, including registration with the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies and Firms (RJSC). Companies must comply with statutory requirements such as annual filings, maintaining corporate records, and holding shareholder meetings. LegalSteps guides clients through company formation and compliance, ensuring adherence to all legal obligations.


Corporate Governance and Directors' Responsibilities

Corporate governance principles in Bangladesh emphasize the roles and responsibilities of directors, shareholder rights, and transparency in decision-making. Directors are obligated to act in the best interests of the company, avoid conflicts of interest, and comply with legal and regulatory requirements. LegalSteps advises on corporate governance practices to enhance operational efficiency and regulatory compliance.


Commercial Contracts and Transactions

Commercial law governs business transactions and contracts in Bangladesh, covering agreements related to sales, leases, partnerships, and more. Contract law ensures that parties’ rights and obligations are legally enforceable, protecting businesses from potential disputes. LegalSteps assists clients in drafting, reviewing, and negotiating commercial contracts to safeguard their interests and mitigate risks.


Dispute Resolution and Corporate Litigation

Disputes in corporate and commercial matters may arise from breaches of contract, shareholder disputes, or regulatory issues.
