Legal Associates hosted the Honorary Consul of Bangladesh in New Zealand, Mr Shafiqur Rahman for a morning tea with the partners and other employees of the firm, in July 2018.
Mr Rahman was accompanied by two officials from the Bangladesh High Commission in Australia who were in Auckland to provide consular services on behalf of the High Commission.
Mr Raj Singh welcomed the guests who were then given a tour of the firm by Mr Taufiq Choudhury. All members of the firm then met at the boardroom where Mr Raj Singh again thanked the Honorary Consul for his visit. He informed the consul about the firm’s work with different communities in Auckland and expressed his interest in working with the Bangladesh community here.
The Consul was advised about the free Saturday Legal Clinics held at Legal Associates and requested to share this information with his community.
Mr Rahman thanked Legal Associates for the warm welcome he received at Legal Associates. He described the activities of his office and shared some ideas about cooperating with his office in providing legal services to the Bangladeshi community in New Zealand. He then spent some time in informal discussions with members of the firm.
