Overview

Jonsson & Hall have one of the most experienced litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution teams in Iceland. All of the firm´s attorneys are qualified litigators. Among the firm´s attorneys are two former presidents of the Icelandic Bar Association, former board members of the Bar Association, the current chairman of the Legislation Committee of the Bar Association and a former chairman of the Board of Ethics for the Bar Association.

The firm´s attorneys have litigated cases both before Icelandic and international courts, including courts of arbitration, the EFTA Court and the European Court of Human Rights. Jonsson & Hall were involved in nearly all the major criminal and bankruptcy litigations after the Icelandic economic collapse in 2008 and were retained by many of the largest creditors of the bankruptcy estates of the fallen Icelandic banks.

In October 2019, Geir Gestsson became the first Icelandic attorney to orally plead a case before the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights. Hörður Felix Harðason has acted as counsel in many of the leading Competition Law cases in Icelandic history. Gestur Jónsson, Ragnar Hall and Gísli Hall have each litigated hundreds of civil and criminal cases before Icelandic courts. Ragnar Hall, Gísli Hall and Gestur Jónsson have all acted as ad hoc judges before Icelandic courts and as arbitrators in commercial disputes.
