About Rahman's Chambers
There was no law firm in Bangladesh which served nationwide as well as covered cross-border, international works. To fill the lacuna, Rahman’s Chambers from very inception decided to grow nationwide as a full service law firm catering the need of local and international clients. Attributed to 100 year family history of providing legal service in different practice areas, over the last 13 years, the Chambers grew from a boutique legal service provider to a large full service law firm, with 26 practice areas & 17 lawyers, serving from six branches located in three Divisions in Bangladesh. It maintains an international division for cross border and international works.
Rahman’s Chambers was founded by Mr. Mohammed Forrukh Rahman in 2006 following his family tradition that dates back to 1920s all the way to his grandfather, late Mr. Shamsuddin Ahmed.
Mr. Ahmed graduated from Presidency College, Calcutta in 1924, was awarded by Bangladesh Bar Council for completion of 50 years of practice life in 2003. Mr. A. M. Mustakimur Rahman (father), a tax lawyer, also followed the same legacy, who is presently associated with this firm as senior tax consultant.
Mr. Mohammed Forrukh Rahman, after completing LLB and Bar-at-Law from the U.K., returned to Bangladesh and joined as an intern in the reputed law firm Lee, Khan & Partners (now dissolved) under the senior partner Mr. Moniruzzaman Khan, Attorney at Law, Barrister and Advocate, Supreme Court of Bangladesh.
At Lee, Khan & Partners he received intensive training on corporate and commercial legal works. Later, Mr. Rahman joined as pupil of Mr. Ajmalul Hossain QC, and worked for him till early 2006 on banking, commercial and several other litigation matters and banking legal projects.
