Landwell, the law firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers, has extended its network to Iceland.
Reykjavik-based firm IMA will join officially at the beginning of September. The move sees Landwell establish itself as the first foreign firm with a presence in Iceland. Head of global operations at Landwell Alan Morris said: "We're trying to create a truly pan-European practice. It's surprising to see the amount of work that goes in and out of Iceland, particularly to neighbouring Scandinavian countries." Morris said the firms had previously enjoyed a good professional relationship. "When you don't have capability in a country, you need to find a firm you can work with," he said, describing IMA as "small but very good". In addition to Icelandic lawyers, IMA also has Paris and New York-qualified lawyers. The firm's focus will be on Iceland's increasing corporate activity.
