About Shakirin

Mohammed Shakirin is an Associate with IRB Law LLP.

He was admitted to the Supreme Court of Singapore as an Advocate and Solicitor in 2016 and graduated with a Bachelor of Laws (Hons) from the highly selective Graduate LLB programme at the National University of Singapore in 2015. He is currently also a member of the Law Society of Singapore.

Apart from his qualifications in Law, Shakirin graduated from the London School of Economics with a Master of Science degree in Economic History (Merit) and previously obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics with First Class Honours from the University of London.

Possessing a keen legal mind, Shakirin is a skilled lawyer who excels in all aspects of legal practice, including commercial and civil disputes, family law practice, criminal law as well as corporate practice. His broad knowledge base and legal experience mean that he is well-equipped to handle tenancy disputes, defamation claims, and personal injury claims, as well as family matters including wills and probate. Whether yours is a criminal case, a family matter or a civil dispute, Shakirin will fight tirelessly to ensure that your interests prevail.

Despite only graduating recently from law school, Shakirin has demonstrated his skill and resourcefulness as a lawyer on numerous occasions and has already been involved in a number of high profile cases. For example, Shakirin recently played an instrumental role in a civil case before the Singapore High Court, Pereira Dennis John Sunny v Faridah binte V Abdul Latiff, fighting for the interests of a Muslim wife in a divorce matter.

He also took a lead role in a criminal case which made national news, representing a defendant charged with voluntarily causing hurt and intentional harassment. Shakirin successfully had the sentence reduced to six months and four days’ imprisonment, compared with a maximum possible sentence of 10 years’ imprisonment with fine or caning for voluntarily causing hurt, and six months’ imprisonment and fines of up to $5000 for intentional harassment.

Before commencing his legal practice, Shakirin taught undergraduates in numerous private institutions in Singapore. From his stint as a lecturer, Shakirin learnt the value of ensuring that clients understand completely the complex legal situations before them. Fluent in English and Malay with knowledge of Arabic, Shakirin is able to advise both local and international clients from a wide range of backgrounds. He is consistently praised by clients and his peers as a patient and compassionate lawyer who takes time to hear clients’ concerns and assist them in the best way he can.

Outside of his legal practice, Shakirin regularly volunteers to help the community by providing free talks on legal issues to mosques around Singapore. In his free time, he enjoys nothing more than playing football. He is married and has two children.
