Juris is a full-service corporate firm known for providing prompt, practical, commercially focused advice. Several of its lawyers have previously worked in-house at major Icelandic and British organisations.
Juris has a unique profile in that it is the only Icelandic law firm with Icelandic and native English lawyers working together in Reykjavík, enabling it to provide seamless cross-border legal advice, benefitting clients in terms of expertise, accessibility and cost. This, together with its experience in and focus on contentious and non-contentious commercial and financial law and its specialism in tax and competition issues, the latter of which is a key consideration for large corporate and commercial entities given the size of the Icelandic market, makes Juris the ideal choice for business clients.
Juris advises clients from a range of sectors on corporate, commercial and financing transactions including M&A (particularly in the hospitality sector), secured lending (including large-scale maritime financing), infrastructure projects, international investment, project finance and early investment in technology start-ups. In the wake of Iceland’s 2008 banking collapse Juris acted in several successful landmark cases.
