One focus of Noah’s practice is product liability litigation. In those cases, he has briefed and argued key issues before state and federal courts such as the admissibility of expert testimony, preemption, personal jurisdiction, standing, Erie predictions, and other matters. Noah has briefed multiple appeals as well, both defending helpful rulings and challenging dismissals. His largest product liability matters are against the makers and sellers of Zantac, a heartburn medication that was withdrawn from the market after regulators learned it degrades into a carcinogen.
Apart from product liability cases, Noah drafts some of the firm’s highest profile appellate advocacy. Supporting Partner Ashley Keller, he assists in briefing cases at the certiorari and merits stage at the United States Supreme Court. He also drafted briefs defending the first two plaintiff bellwether trial victories in the 3M Combat Arms earplug litigation.
Some of his practice focuses on mass arbitrations, for example, working on the Keller Postman team that successfully represented almost 200,000 taxpayers who brought consumer deception claims against Intuit after paying for TurboTax services that they were eligible to receive for free.
Before joining Keller Postman, Noah was an associate at Latham & Watkins LLP in Washington, D.C., where he represented plaintiffs and defendants in federal and state courts, with a focus on law and briefing at the trial and appellate levels.
Noah served as a law clerk for Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson III of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, where he was an articles editor on the Harvard Law Review and an editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy. He was first in his class at The King’s College in New York, with a degree in politics, philosophy, and economics.
Noah is licensed to practice law in the District of Columbia only.
"Everyone hates when the bad guy gets away with it on a technicality—I love working for individual plaintiffs because a big part of the job is making sure that does not happen. The legal system is complicated, but by carefully anticipating the hurdles and pitfalls, we can make sure injured people get a fair shot at compensation for what was taken."
