Biography

Masud Khan is an international corporate attorney. Prior to coming to Bangladesh in 2007, Masud was a corporate law partner in a US Mid-Western law firm (Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren-"RBV") with 200 plus lawyers. Masud spearheaded RBV's efforts to build an international practice by helping many of his Wisconsin based manufacturing clients explore and set up operations in China, India and South America.

Masud focuses his practice on general corporate law, M&A including cross-border transactions, foreign investment into Bangladesh, financing (equity and debt) transactions, business and contract negotiations, US export and import laws (inclusive of FCPA compliance), international trade, distribution and agency law. Masud spends time to understand a client's business and strategic goals, and is a "trusted advisor" who engages himself in every aspect of a transaction and representing his client's interests. Masud has worked on a significant number of private equity transactions in Bangladesh in the last few years, where his approach to negotiating and closing transactions has been beneficial to his clients. Masud also advises on legal analysis and strategy on certain cases involving high value claims, foreign parties or specific sectors. Masud has been highlighted in the Chambers and Partners 2011, 2012 and 2013 publication as one of the top tier lawyers in Bangladesh (during his US practice days, Masud was ranked by Martindale Hubbell as "AV"—which translated to excellence in practice and highest ethical values, a rare ranking for at that time an young lawyer). Masud is also an editor of (a) the Legal Circle Law Reports, and (b) the legal resource website www.thinklegalbangladesh.com. Masud is also involved in various non-profit/social impact initiatives in Bangladesh and the United States. Masud is a columnist for the daily newspaper New Age and the online opinion site BDNews24.
