Areas of Specialisation

Deed Poll – You can change your name legally in Singapore via a deed poll. You have to make a declaration by way of this deed poll, and this declaration has to be made in front of a lawyer before the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (“ICA”) will process the change of your name. You can execute a deed poll if you are a Singapore citizen or permanent resident who is over the age of 21. If you are a foreigner, you must verify with the Foreign Embassy or Consulate Office in Singapore to see if a Singapore lawyer may change your name according to your country’s regulations. If you’re under the age of 21, you can have both of your parents sign the deed poll on your behalf.

HDB Power of Attorney – A Housing Development Board (“HDB”) Power of Attorney is a document that allows you (‘the donor’) to authorize and empower another person (‘the donee’) to act on your behalf for certain matters relating to the HDB.

Notary Public – A Notary Public attests deeds, contracts, and other instruments that will be used in other countries, and provides a certificate of the documents’ proper execution, which is authenticated by his signature and notarial stamp and/or seal. Services include witnessing the execution of Powers of Attorney and other legal documents, certifying originals and true copies of documents, and many more.

Commissioner for Oaths – The role of a Commissioner for Oaths is to administer oaths or affirmations in legal documents. This involves administering oaths or affirmations in connection with affidavits for use in Singapore courts, as well as statutory declarations and legal documents.

Debt Recovery – When your own debt collection efforts fail, Debt Recovery is the alternative option for recovering your monies through legal recourse with the support of lawyers. IRB Law LLP provides services and legal advice on debt recovery to individuals and businesses of all sizes. A Letter of Demand (“LOD”) is a letter drafted and sent by a lawyer to help you lodge a legal claim against the letter’s recipient.
