Michael F. DeckerAmerican Lawyer, Oslo Download vCard
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 a leading U.S. law firm. He also served as a law clerk for one trial judge and one appellate judge in the U.S. federal court system.
Michael is admitted to practice law in the courts of New York State and before other United States courts. He is licensed in Norway as an amerikansk advokat.
