Profile

I have over eleven years experience in representing clients facing criminal charges ranging from being drunk and disorderly to conspiracy to murder.

Over the last few years I have developed an expertise in extradition law with recent notable cases including:

  • acting in the first Peruvian extradition request in living memory.
  • acting in an American request where my the requested person was discharged at the magistrates' court.
  • securing the discharge of numerous requested persons in the last few months, ranging from working parents to vulnerable and homeless single persons.
  • securing the acquittal, on appeal to the crown court, of both defendants in a large-scale public order incident in which the evidence against them consisted of the testimony of numerous police officers, and where the prosecution was represented by a recorder of the crown court.
  • identifying an entirely novel point of law (domestic arrest warrants in extradition proceedings), which is currently before the Supreme Court.
