As a maritime nation on the vertex of the Bay of Bengal, Bangladesh has a 710 KM of shoreline to set it’s authority upon. It has two main and busiest seaports, one in Chittagong and the other in Khulna’s Mongla. The court of admiralty is situated in Dhaka’s High Court. All claims and proceedings relating to maritime and admiralty shall be brought before the Admiralty Court. Because of several variables such as weather conditions, port condition, navigation error, piloting collision etc., Admiralty court is not unusual in such instances. Similarly, property disputes are needed to be brought before this tribunal for local seagoing and non-sea ships, and the same is a periodic item of this court. Foreign and local bunker providers, crews and mortgage banks often invoke this jurisdiction by arresting ships located in Bangladesh land to recover their duties. The involvement of International P&I Clubs and local and foreign banks is a prevalent affair as it is not possible to insure the release of the vessel without their undertaking or bank guarantee. Claims resulting from the carriage of products, cargo shortages, cargo harm, dead freight inability to pay freight and hire, etc. are now commonplace as litigants are more worried with their rights. Depending on the arbitration clause, action in rem for charter party claim for sub-freight on cargo lien may also be brought in restricted instances. Our Chambers is one of the leading law firms in this region of law and has extensive experience dealing with nearly every type of litigation brought before the Dhaka Admiralty Court.

Airlines, suppliers of machinery and facilities, service providers, travelers frequently seek legal services. For instance, claims related to cargo, claims for boarding & baggage, recovery of duties, recovery of machinery and equipment, salaries and advantages for the crew, etc. are not very rare for attorneys in Bangladesh now.

Child Custody Law Department, Dhaka

Learn More

Tahmidur Rahman has a devoted team of Child Custody lawyers who frequently as well as aim for ADR and participate in litigation before subordinate & higher courts. Bangladesh has traditional family values and a conservative society where social stigma, superstitions and family-related taboos can be hard to seek justice. Our team has extensive experience dealing with complex family problems.

In Bangladesh, we adopt the 1985 Family Court Ordinance and the Guardians and Wards Act (GWA) 1890 when dealing with child custody and care cases. Under the law, a dad is the child’s legal and natural guardian until they reach the age of majority under the land’s general law, namely the 1875 Majority Act. But in the event of a male kid, the mother has the right of protection up to seven years of age, and in the event of a female kid up to the era of puberty. Different precedents have also been created in this connection by the choices of the greater courts; and the essence of such choices is that the authority of the family court to determine a party’s right to the custody of a baby is not restricted to the mere observance of the’ age rule,’ the notion of the welfare and best interests of the minor child is essential. Therefore, it is permissible to deviate from the literal implementation of the age rule where the welfare of a child is in question.

Under Islamic law, even if the mom has her children’s physical custody, dad remains the child’s guardian as he is expected to financially assist the child. It should be noted, however, that in the prevailing social set-up where the father is not the sole financial contributor and the mother shares financial responsibility and in many cases is the main contributor to the family’s financial needs, then the privilege of’ personal and property guardianship’ should also apply to her (PLD 1963).

Bearing flag ship from Bangladesh and cargo owners / shippers from Bangladesh mostly cover their risk with local insurance companies.

General insurance, on the other side, includes property insurance, non-marine risk liability insurance, etc. Principals established in age-old marine insurance legislation are also relevant in general insurance, e.g. a duty of utmost good faith and not to make any fraudulent claim. The Insurance Act, 2010 repealing the 1938 Insurance Act, is the governing law for both general and marine insurance.

It is not unusualthat owing to collision, fake cargo delivery, local and international embargo, etc., both P&I Clubs and insurance firms are needed to take steps to rescue their clients mostly in Chattogram Port and other global ports where cargo / ships are from Bangladesh or destined for Bangladesh.

According to the Public Private Partnership Authority (PPPA) policy and guidelines and other procurement rules and regulations, procurement can generally be classified as follows: G2 G partnership for PPP; PPP projects and Non-PPP projects.

Depending on ERD’s “main approval,” a project may be G2 G implemented PPP project (solicited / unsolicited) or only PPP project (solicited / unsolicited) competing with the relevant law ministry & “principal approval” of PPPA. Depending on authorization, the bidding method for the requested project (whether for PPP or non-PPP) may also differ.

Participating in tendering schedules & preparing records according to tender documents instructions, preparing an unsolicited proposition, etc. is a very difficult task for both domestic and foreign bidders.
