Bengali Solicitors

Why Bengalis Solicitors?

Bangladeshis make up one of the largest communities in the UK. An influx of Bengalis, particularly from Sylhet, moved to the UK in the early seventeenth century, and the number has grown since the founding of the country in 1971. This was the era that welcomed the establishment of the British-Bangladeshi community in the United Kingdom. As per 2021 census, Bangladeshis account for 1.1% of the total population of England and Wales; the UK is the state with the most Bangladesh inhabitants and is the third largest export destination for the country. Issues Faced by Bangladeshis in the UK While Bengalis and Sylhetis took to the UK for various reasons, including natural disasters, war against Pakistan, and the urge to flee poverty, many encountered institutionalised racism and attacks by certain far-right groups during the first decade of independence. These incidences prompted the establishment of legal firms across the region to represent Bengalis on different levels.

Addressing the unique issues faced by the Bengali community across the UK, Ascentim Legal provides specialised services to ensure that the gaps between different facets of the law are kept to a minimum. We are committed to dealing with all kinds of developing concerns that may widen divisions between communities or are in conflict with the prevalent legal system.

Client Liaison and Advice

At Ascentim Legal, we house an expert team to accommodate British-Bangladeshis and UK nationals that seek advisors for any issue requiring Bengali law assistance under English law. Our team offers legal advice on different aspects of the law and represents and defends our clients interests on legal platforms. Our Bengali solicitors take instructions from clients, who may be individuals, public sector organisations or private corporations, to advise them on important legal issues.

No Law is Taken in Isolation

We house an intelligent team with strong analytical, advocacy, and communication skills. Our lawyers are specialised in respective areas, mastering excellence as experts in their field. We understand our clients objectives and advocate on that basis, rather than consider the law in isolation: For instance, for our commercial clients, we would appreciate the business as well as legal outcomes of the arguments.

Our Areas of Expertise

Bengali Family Law

We specialise in international divorce and family matters, advising and representing Bangladeshis residing in the UK or those living outside the UK and Wales but connected to the region. Bangladesh is a Muslim country operating on the basis of Sharia (Islamic) law. At Ascentim Legal, we regularly tackle cases involving Bangladeshi nationals and their spouse. The marriage contract, the Nikkah, governs financial arrangements; the divorce procedure for a man constitutes Talaq and registration at the local Union Council. If parties agree on the divorce, it can be enforced relatively quickly. The matters of children are also dealt with via Islamic law. Parties should be informed that, like most other Muslim countries, Bangladesh is not a signatory to the Hague Convention; hence, they should seek advice before taking the child to Bangladesh.
