Practice Areas

David is an extradition barrister of significant experience, representing Requested Persons wanted in both Part 1 and Part 2 jurisdictions. He has considerable expertise in prison conditions across many jurisdictions and appeared in the leading cases in Bulgaria (Kirchanov & Others [2017] EWHC 1285 (Admin)) and Lithuania (Aleksynas & Others [2014] EWHC 437 (Admin)).

David has been instructed in a number of other leading cases including on Double Jeopardy, led by Helen Malcolm QC (Kulibaba v USA [2014] EWHC 176 (Admin)), Forum, led by David Josse QC (Atraskevic v Lithuania [2016] 1 W.L.R. 2762) and section 12A, led by David Perry QC before the Lord Chief Justice (Puceviciene and Others [2016] 1 W.L.R. 4937). He has been involved in Judicial Review proceedings in an extradition context both led and alone (R (Lazarov) v WMC [2018] EWHC 3050 (Admin), Augusciak v Poland [2014] EWHC 420 (Admin) and R (Tarabanovs) v WMC [2015] EWHC 3641 (Admin)).

He has developed significant expertise in requests from the USA securing a number of discharges following very long running cases. David’s expertise in sports law, particularly football, means he is increasingly instructed to represent professional sportspeople and those in the sports industry faced with extradition.
