The scope of our consulting practice covers a broad range of constitutional and legal themes including development law. Our firm is well positioned to service Nepal based clients as well as international entities. Our services are mainly targeted at clients from the following segments:
Whether an issue is local or multi-jurisdictional, work area specific or inter-disciplinary, it is our culture and philosophy to work closely with clients to understand all of their legal needs to devise appropriate and comprehensive solutions. We also keep our clients apprised of legal developments that may affect their operations in Nepal.
The firm is also able to draw on the resources of a network of independently practicing legal professionals. This network of associates in different parts of the country gives our firm a pan Nepal footprint. Our associates are at the cutting edge of Nepal's legal developments. As such, we are able to render specialized services in every legal aspect of Nepal through our integrated professional network. We also cooperate with solo practitioners and law firms on a world-wide basis.
Nepal Consulting Lawyers Inc is able to provide services in a myriad of legal contexts. Our areas of expertise include (but are not limited to):
We address the interpretation and implementation of the Nepalese Constitution and federalism, the three branches (the Executive, Legislature, Judiciary) of the government, the rights of the individual in relation to the state, state and legal structures, the legislative and financial procedures, and other jus commune, or law of the land, that may consist of a variety of imperative and consensual rules. These may include customary law, conventions, statutory law, judge made law or international rules and norms. The Supreme Court plays a crucial role in interpreting the Constitution. Consequently, we also focus on Supreme Court rulings. In contemporary Nepal, a 'constituent assembly' will soon draft and adopt a new constitution. Nepal Consulting Lawyers Inc is also involved in this process as an expert.
The firm has expertise in handling issues like protection against public (government) and/or private sector discrimination, due process and equal protection requirements, protection against private actors or entities. Areas of experience cover freedoms that protect the individual from government including freedom of association, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech, and additionally, the right to due process, to fair trial, to own property and to privacy.
We also have substantial experience in parliamentary process. We have provided expertise to bill review programmes, procedures relating to the conduct of business by parliamentary committees, procedures for introducing a Bill, procedures for passage of bills, withdrawal process, assent procedures, ordinances, exercise of taxing powers, procedures as to disbursement of revenues, expenditure from consolidated funds or government funds, rules as to estimates of revenues and expenditure, appropriation process, supplementary estimates, votes on account, votes on credit, contingency fund process, and legal drafting.
The firm has expertise on justice sector reform projects - enhancing capacity of justice sector institutions to deliver services efficiently and effectively; strengthening linkages between justice institutions; improved access to justice, especially for the poor and vulnerable; enhancing citizens' trust in a justice system which respects their rights, upholds their responsibilities and meets their needs.
We help develop legal and regulatory frameworks, as well as policy and institutional environments, which foster economic activity and sustainable development. We assist our clients on law and policy reform operations and knowledge products, as well as various tools and strategies to help them manage challenges on the legal front.
Legal consultation on issues relating to creating and sustaining legal environments conducive to economic growth and equitable social development - particularly in the context of privatization, deregulation and mobilization of private sector resources for investment in infrastructure in developing capital and securities markets, and the broader concerns including environment, consumer protection and women in development issues. We have a good experience in energy and infrastructure law, and have also advised our clients on compliance issues including under procurement laws. Furthermore, in an era of increasingly limited resources available from donor countries, we can help our client departments focus on administrative reforms to promote more efficient and effective use of public funds.
Our legal research offering will allow you to request reference materials from databases on history of prior court cases. We can meet your required research needs whether they are from primary or secondary databases. For example, we can assist you to monitor legislative and judicial decisions that directly impact your business.
