LEX Law Offices

LEX Law Offices is one of Iceland’s leading law firms, with over 40 lawyers providing clients with comprehensive services for a wide range of financial, corporate and commercial issues, as well as most other aspects of Icelandic law. The firm was founded in 1959 and is today one of the largest law firms in Iceland.

The firm is recognised for its extensive knowledge and expertise on all levels and across all disciplines of intellectual property and related areas of law, and boasts top-ranking attorneys in the field. Building on decades of experience, LEX provides comprehensive advice and assistance to its clients in relation to their trademarks, patents, designs, copyright and unfair competition, ranging from clearance, filing and prosecution services to legal assistance and litigation.

LEX assists its clients with all IP-related conflicts and offers strategic advice on the best course of action. Quality in the handling of dispute resolution requires a combination of litigation experience and specialist knowledge. LEX offers this combination. The firm’s aim is to guide its clients through legal proceedings in a skilful and methodical manner and provide them with comprehensive advice on every step along the way. Several of LEX’s highly experienced attorneys are licensed to practise before the Supreme Court of Iceland and can thus represent its clients at all instances of the Icelandic court system. LEX also has vast experience in anti-counterfeiting matters. The firm’s attorneys are among the country’s most experienced when it comes to custom actions due to infringements of IP rights and have extensive experience in filing and proceeding pleas for preliminary injunctions in order to enforce such rights.

LEX provides its clients with tailored advice on developing and implementing a successful IP strategy. LEX’s attorneys work closely with the firm’s clients on developing an overall strategy to best support their business objectives. LEX moreover offers support in creating a material plan for implementation of the strategy and assistance during the implementation process. LEX offers its clients comprehensive advice on the management of their IP portfolios and helps ensuring that these portfolios are aligned with and support their overall business goals and strategies.

Two of LEX’s attorneys are lecturers in IP law at the University of Iceland. Building on that extensive teaching experience, LEX provides its clients with coaching in all fields of IP law. Such sessions are tailored to meet the clients’ needs and can range from coaching on how to choose a trademark to successfully managing an IP portfolio. The firm’s attorneys are moreover frequent speakers at IP law-related events.

LEX is one of the few one-stop shops in the IP practice area in Iceland, offering services ranging from business services such as patent validations, trademark watch services and portfolio management to services in relation to complex legal issues such as contracts, dispute resolution and litigation. The fact that LEX’s IP partners are licensed to practise throughout the Icelandic court system makes LEX unique in Iceland.

In September 2018 LEX significantly strengthened its IP practice by purchasing the IP boutique GH Sigurgeirsson Intellectual Property (GH IP). GH IP was founded in 1942 and has been actively engaged in the protection of IP rights in Iceland ever since. LEX takes great pride in the history of GH IP and will continue to build upon its legacy. GH IP operates as a subsidiary of LEX, merging LEX’s extensive practice in the field of IP law with the firm and thereby widely broadening its services.

As one of the oldest and most respected law firms in Iceland, LEX aims to be the firm of choice for clients seeking legal assistance in Iceland. Striving to cater to every individual client’s interests and needs, LEX provides tailored services in all fields of intellectual property and aims to secure its clients’ IP rights, increase their value and keep its clients one step ahead of the competition.
