Arctic Legal Services

As the legal sector evolves, one thing remains constant – our commitment to being at the forefront of legal developments – both generally and in key industries. Our lawyers meet regularly in their practice groups to discuss cutting-edge legal issues, while the groups themselves act as centres of excellence, ensuring the highest professional standards.


We all know that most business activity is conducted by companies, which are not just bought and sold, merged or demerged, but are also increasingly subject to even more sophisticated reorganisations and restructurings. Our corporate law expert group of highly skilled specialists combines in-depth knowledge of the industry with long-standing experience to provide clients with first-class advice of the highest level tailored to meet their business needs. We also offer advisory services with particular focus on legal issues arising from the day-to-day management of a business. The matters we work on range from resolutions in shareholder and director meetings to corporate governance and compliance.


Tax is a key consideration for those doing business in Iceland. The regulations are often complicated and violations may have severe consequences. Taxation is also a key political instrument, and as such subject to constant changes. Our tax expert specializes in all areas of tax law, with a core focus on business tax, VAT, internation tax, corporate tax and litigation. We offer our clients in-depth knowledge of the tax legislation coupled with first-class advice on effective tax planning strategies to achieve the best possible solution for our clients. The depth of our experience and pragmatic approach to each assignment enables us to provide clients with high quality seamless advice.


Contracts are the legal foundation of contemporary business, governing relations with your customers, suppliers and staff. With so much at stake, they must be right. We regularly assist with all stages of the contract process including drafting and negotiating and management of the contract. In our experience, many disputes can be avoided if the parties agree on precise and clearly defined contractual obligations during the preliminary negotiations to achieve balance in the contractual relationship.


Arctics Legal team for restructuring and insolvency combines in-depth expertise and broad experience to provide advice and assistance to all types of businesses and organizations encountering financial difficulties. Our clients include companies, managers, owners, lenders, borrowers, customers, employees or other individual creditors.


​In Iceland, immigration rules and regulations are complex and constantly changing. We can help companies, individuals, and their families in immigration questions when it comes to relocation. We will represent your employers professional and experienced with labor law issues. We will handle all questions related to immigration, allowing you to focus on what you do best: your business.


The firm has an unrivalled experience in assisting foreign businesses in Iceland in all aspects from establishment to steady operation to exit. We have through the years developed a unique experience as problem solvers. Being advisors to a wide range of businesses we have seen and been part of resolving numerous problems for foreign businesses in the Icelandic business environment.


At Arctic Legal Services we understand that, while law is important, it is only part of a wider context that includes industry knowledge and business understanding.
