ABOUT NAOMI

Welcome.

Naomi has a broad public law practice with a focus on Indigenous law, administrative law (regulatory law), environmental, energy and mining law, criminal law and corporate law. With an international reach, people say Naomi’s work is transformative. She has extensive experience in advising a range of entities and governments on privacy issues, Indigenous rights and governance issues. She is highly sought after for her simple yet impactful solutions, advising entities such as international human rights organizations and the federal government. She offers direct and candid legal services to everyday individuals, professionals, governments and other entities. She serves clients in both Ontario and Alberta, and she regularly receives inquiries across Canada. She operates a primarily digital practice that helps keep pricing competitive while remaining above the technology curve. Naomi is frequently invited by the media to comment on pressing issues and issues of national importance or public interest, ranging from regulatory work to human rights commentary. 

Prior to opening her own practice, Naomi summered, articled and worked as legal counsel at Hydro One, Ontario's largest electricity distribution and transmission provider. Working primarily on First Nations files, real estate files, and corporate law files, Naomi provided legal support to Hydro One's attempted acquisition of a US electricity and natural gas company valued at $6.7 billion and to Hydro One's $1.6 billion offering under its medium term note program. Naomi also assisted with negotiations for transmission and distribution permits required under the Indian Act for their assets on First Nations land throughout Ontario.
