Fielding a number of Supreme Court attorneys, the ‘service-oriented‘ dispute resolution practice at Lex Law Offices is jointly led by Kristín Edwald and Arnar Þór Stefánsson. The team is adept at handling claims relating to banking, construction, tort and insolvency claims, and represents government clients including the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture; it also counts Costco, Renault and Landsbankinn on its high-profile client roster. Samherji is also a key client, which the team recently represented in an investigation into its subsidiaries in Namibia and its activities in the country. Birgir Már Björnsson was promoted to the partnership in early 2020, while Garðar Víðir Gunnarsson is another key contact for contentious tax matters.
