„Réttur is known for its strong dispute resolution team, which is composed of talented and experienced litigators with diverse backgrounds, allowing the firm to represent a range of clients in most areas of the law.
In recent years, Réttur’s team has litigated a defence on behalf of international actors in rescission cases launched by the winding up committees of the fallen Icelandic banks. These cases have been highly complicated and involved cross-border and jurisdictional disagreements, as well as unprecedented Icelandic legal issues.
The team regularly represented individuals and companies alike in highly publicized court cases in Iceland. Many of these are leading cases in the field of human rights and the firm’s partners’ have taken a number of cases to the European Court of Human Rights. Most notably in recent years, Réttur’s team has focused on high profile cases relating to freedom of speech, the right to privacy and health care.“ – Sjá meira.
