Corporate and Commercial Law

We represent a broad range of commercial and corporate clients across various sectors.

IRB Law’s corporate lawyers have substantial experience across many areas of corporate and commercial law. Our size enables us to provide a personalised level of service, whilst having the capacity to handle large scale international transactions and cross-border corporate legal matters.

Unlike other law firms, we commonly operate on fixed fee arrangements, which provides you with certainty and transparency in planning your legal budgets. We advise a broad clientele, ranging from software and technology start-ups, family-owned businesses, to listed companies in Singapore and other jurisdictions.

Having professional advice on the structure and formation of your business will go a long way towards avoiding costly and protracted disputes in future, especially when the business does well and is profitable.
