‘"Mature, lucid and excellent on her feet, giving opponents a run for their money time after time.” Clients further report that she is a delight to deal with.’
(Chambers UK 2011)
One of the leading practitioners in the fields of employment, commercial and professional negligence law, 'first class advocate', Naomi Ellenbogen has won a raft of plaudits from clients and legal directories since she was called to the Bar by Gray's Inn in 1992. She was appointed Queen’s Counsel in 2010; amongst the most junior to be appointed in that year. Naomi is regarded as a clear-thinking, formidable advocate and a creative lawyer and tactician. She has a flair for putting people at their ease.
Legal directories have variously recognised Naomi’s 'superb' skill in cross-examination and her 'bright and commercial' attitude, as well as her strong reputation as a 'punchy advocate, recognised for her ability to assimilate large quantities of information' who 'will go that extra mile' for her clients and 'never fails to impress'. Naomi 'achieves success through her successful interaction with clients' and has 'excellent advocacy skills - great on her feet, she never concedes a point'. She is 'thoroughly prepared and tenaciously executes her advocacy without arrogance'. 'Clients are "lost in admiration" for Naomi Ellenbogen. This "strong and tremendously courteous advocate" has many fans'.
In commercial law, Naomi comes 'highly recommended' and was identified as a 'junior of note ','singled out by major firms' and 'seen by top firms as an approachable and able commercial practitioner'. She has been identified as a 'prominent practitioner' in the field of professional negligence.
Naomi is an accredited mediator, experienced in mediating complex and high value disputes in all her areas of practice. She is the General Editor of Butterworths Employment Law: Practice, Procedure & Precedents, Fifth Edition. Naomi is Barrister Vice-Chair of the Complaints Committee of the Bar Standards Board.
Naomi attended King David High School in Liverpool, before gaining an MA in Jurisprudence from Oxford University (New College).
