Naomi specialises in contentious intellectual property matters. Whilst she advises on a wide range of issues and subject matters, her practice has a particular focus on patent litigation. Her technical background in physics puts her in particular demand for cases in the technology, telecommunications and engineering sectors, where her detailed understanding of complex technology puts her in a strong position.
Her litigation experience encompasses full High Court actions, interim applications both at first instance and in the Court of Appeal. Much of Naomi’s work involves cases that are multi-jurisdictional and have an emphasis on strategic and technical co-ordination.
Naomi has experience working with a broad range of technical subject matters. Naomi advised on the dispute between Samsung and Apple in relation to mobile technology. This hard-fought litigation involved 3G telecommunications patent issues as well as confidentiality and competition aspects. She continues to act for Samsung and Google in their dispute with Unwired Planet which involves a range of 2G, 3G and 4G technology. Outside of the field of telecommunications, Naomi assisted Petroleum Geo-Services in its dispute against Electromagnetic Geoservices involving hydrocarbon surveying techniques.
Naomi spent time on secondment to the in-house legal department of a leading global advertising and marketing services company during her training, gaining valuable experience of non-contentious IP/IT and commercial issues.
