Competition law

The importance of expertise in competition law in Iceland has grown in line with the country’s evolving corporate sector. We pride ourselves in our team’s experience in the field as we have a strong team advising local and international firms alike. The firm´s experts lecture regularly on the topic at the Icelandic universities and in private lectures.
