She became an entrepreneur over ten years ago when she formed a law firm focused on advising entrepreneurs and knowledge-based businesses during both good and challenging times, starting from launch, to financing, growth, pivot/change, and ultimately exit. Naomi Morisawa De Koven is the managing lawyer of MDK.
Naomi is an active charter member of TiE Ottawa, a past recipient of the Ottawa Business Journal’s Forty under 40, and a volunteer director of several not-for-profit organizations. Prior to moving to Ottawa, she was a Toronto-based partner at a national law firm. Naomi earned a B.A. from McGill University, an LL.B. at the University of Toronto, and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1995.
When she's out of the office, Naomi can be spotted out on the water in her kayak, practicing mindfulness, watching the latest sci-fi movie with her family, and searching for unique images to share on Instagram.
