LEX Law Offices:

LEX Law Offices in its present form has strong roots dating back over half a century. In 1959, Mr. Sveinn Snorrason, Supreme Court Attorney, founded his law firm and soon three Supreme Court Attorneys joined him, Mr. Jónas Aðalsteinsson, who still acts as of counsel to the firm, Mr. Guðmundur Ingvi Sigurðsson and Mr. Jóhannes L.L. Helgason. As the years passed the firm grew and was branded with the name LEX Law Offices in 1987. In 2000, LEX merged with KPMG LAW in Iceland under the LEX brand name. Then in 2005 LEX and Nestor Law Offices also merged.

The story of Nestor began in 1977 when Mr. Jón Steinar Gunnlaugsson, a former Supreme Court Judge, founded a law firm in his own name. Later Mr. Karl Axelsson, Supreme Court Attorney, assistant professor and current chairman of the board at LEX joined him and, in cooperation with others, they formed Nestor Law Offices.

Based on its strong historical roots and solid foundation, LEX has become one of Iceland’s largest law firms with 45 lawyers and two offices, the headquarters at Borgartún 26 in Reykjavik and an office at Hafnarstræti 94 in Akureyri, in the north of Iceland.

Adam M. Mack

Mr Mack enjoys pursuing outdoor hobbies in his spare time. While the most important part of his life is his family, he is also involved in his church and serves there each week, having also served a two‐year mission for his church in Houston, Texas.

Mr Mack was drawn to the law, and specifically advocacy, from an early age, leading him to earn a BA in Social Work from Brigham Young University in Idaho. During this experience studying and practising as a social worker, his passion for advocacy led him to receive his JD from Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, KS.

Today, Mr Mack’s primary practice areas are bankruptcy and personal injury law; meanwhile, he has gained significant experience representing a broad clientele in family law, estate planning, probate and guardianship, as well as conservatorship. This varied legal scope and wide-ranging experience is combined with a deep understanding and has, over the years, enabled him to adapt to an ever-changing legal landscape.

The breadth of his expertise in these intersecting areas ensures that his clients are provided with a working understanding of how their actions and legal decisions will impact all areas of their lives.

Moreover, and perhaps most significantly, Mr Mack is truly passionate about owning and working in a law practice, and finds the work professionally and personally engaging, as well as fulfilling.
