Michael works with Norwegian and international parties on business disputes—most often international arbitrations.

Because of his education and experience representing parties in disputes in the United States, Michael also often advises European clients on U.S. law issues. He is uniquely well suited to provide such advice, as well as to help U.S. clients understand Norwegian law, practice, and culture.

Before joining Schjødt, Michael worked on complex class actions in New York City at Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP. He also served as a law clerk for one federal trial court judge, Chief Judge Janet C. Hall of the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut, and one federal appellate court judge, Judge Adalberto Jordan of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

Michael is admitted to practice law in the courts of New York State and before other United States courts. He is also admitted to practice law as a solicitor in England and Wales. He is licensed in Norway as an amerikansk advokat.

Michael is proficient in Italian.
