About

Provided by LEX Law Offices

Corporate and commercial law is the cornerstone at LEX.  Drawing from decades of experience and knowledge, LEX routinely advises on issues ranging from the choice of corporate form, the establishment of the corporation itself, the drafting of articles of association and cross border considerations.  Our corporate and commercial practise group frequently works in collaboration with other practice areas, such as Tax, Banking and Finance and Merger & Acquisition.  The close cooperation between different practice areas at LEX ensures that clients' cases are dealt with in the most efficient manner, from both time and monetary perspectives.

In addition to providing general corporate legal advice, LEX is one of Iceland's leading law firms in preparing due diligence reviews related to change of ownership of companies and businesses, financing and refinancing and IPOs’. Our portfolio of corporate clients ranges from many of Iceland’s major companies to international clients.

In recent years LEX has worked closely with a number of leading international law firms in cross border transactions, providing Icelandic law advice and handling any Icelandic aspects of such transactions.
