i am a lawyer in a bangladesh.I have connections with a number of banks and they could be potential clients.however I am hesitant to represent them as they are not Islamic banks.is it halal for me to represent a bank in a case.
It is not merely Haram to represent bank because it is a bank. Your advocacy or defense of a bank will depend whether you are defending the bank for a just cause or wrongful cause. If you are representing the bank for a wrongful cause then it would be Haram but if you are representing the bank for a rightful cause then it would be permissible.
And Allah knows best.
