We have acted for numerous clients facing extradition from the UK to a variety of jurisdictions, including the Russian Federation, US, India, Kenya and countries in Europe operating the European Arrest Warrant. We also advise on extradition proceedings in any of the former UK colonies or Commonwealth countries, which have similar legislative schemes and, are currently dealing with cases in Bermuda and Trinidad.

Our lawyers include the former Head of Extradition at the CPS and are frequently consulted prior to a formal request even being made to the United Kingdom and are able to provide specialist advice at every stage of extradition proceedings. We regularly assist lawyers overseas to deal with extradition proceedings outside the UK and have helped successfully resist requests made to Monaco, Germany and Cyprus. Our expertise is particularly valuable where the request has a political or economic motivation. To date, we have been successful in challenging all such extradition requests received from the Russian Federation.

Our internationally recognised team adopts a strategic approach to each case and has extensive experience in advising clients through bail proceedings, evidence gathering, formal hearings and any necessary appeals. Our team’s innovation and determination has enabled us to devise creative solutions and achieve outstanding success for our clients and resounding judgments in the extradition court.
