Mr. Haaskjold has extensive experience as an arbitrator in international commercial disputes, both institutional and ad hoc, with appointments as party-nominated arbitrator, sole arbitrator or chairman. Having served as arbitrator since 2008, his experience spans a number of industry sectors, such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, commodities, shipping, insurance, real estate, construction, engineering, infrastructure and telecommunications. His dual qualification both as a common law barrister and as a civil law advocate provides him with particular insight in the different legal systems and the various challenges that may arise in international disputes. He is frequently called as an expert witness on Norwegian and Scandinavian law (contract law, company law, and private international law) in other jurisdictions.
