Partner & Head of Extradition Division
You are legally and lawfully living in the UK and are being required to leave the country to face trial or serve a prison sentence.
Extradition is the process by which those wanted to stand trial or serve a prison sentence abroad are sought.
The procedure was radically revised by the Extradition Act 2003, which sought to streamline the process within the E.U. by the introduction of the controversial European Arrest Warrant.
As a result of this and the increasingly international nature of many criminal investigations, the number of extradition requests has dramatically increased. We are specialists in the law and procedure of extradition and have been involved in many ground-breaking legal challenges to requests emanating from all over the world.
