The Construction Law Practice:
For many years, LEX has enjoyed close and cooperative relationship with numerous major Icelandic engineering firms, contractors and public entities in preparation of their major projects. Our advice can be sought at any stage, whether it is when preparing the tender documents, when writing and negotiating the construction agreement or assisting parties in the case of disagreement, for instance through negotiations or before the courts.
LEX has extensive experience when it comes to arguing cases regarding the enforcement of construction contracts and in the field of public procurement, both before the courts and the Public Procurement Complaints Committee. Our lawyers have, for instance, argued cases for companies claiming that a public entity has violated the laws on public procurement, and cases where a party to a construction agreement argues that the counter party has defaulted on the said agreement. Our lawyers have also defended public entities in similar cases.
LEX’s experts in the field of arbitration work closely with the construction, public procurement and tendering law practice area to ensure a favourable resolution of disputes.
