Noam developed a particular interest in protest-related work, with numerous reported cases concerning the rights to freedom of expression and assembly and related issues.

In 2010, Noam broadened his practice to include extradition.  Since then, he has developed a strong reputation in the field. He is an experienced crime and extradition advocate, representing clients from initial hearing to trial/final extradition hearing.  He has secured the discharge of dozens of clients facing extradition requests from all over the world, including Albania, Peru, the Unites States, Turkey, Canada and Australia.
