Our team are well versed in advising clients that are subjected or potentially subjected to a European Arrest Warrant.
We have acted in the interests of many clients who face extradition from the UK to a variety of jurisdictions including but not limited to, many European countries, the USA and the Russian Federation.
We are well equipped at dealing with the challenges often brought by such proceedings and have in the past dealt with rare and complex cases where novel issues arise. James Peacham, for example, recently secured the discharge of a client who was classified by the National Crime Agency as being a victim of human trafficking three times over. Our client’s status as a victim was ignored under the Extradition Act.
Extradition proceedings are quick in pace and are covered by tight legislative deadlines which are strictly imposed. We are appreciative of the anxiety and distress brought upon individual client’s during this time and endeavour to offer first class advice and support throughout the process.
Many of our solicitors frequently appear as Duty Solicitor before the Westminster Magistrates’ Court at first instance however, we also attract significant private instructions within this field due to our reputation. We are often called upon to provide advice on appeal in cases where we did not act initially and have experience of acting in such matters up to the Supreme Court.
We are able to offer advice to the widest scope of clientele from the most vulnerable to corporate clients and senior executives. We actively encourage individuals and corporate entities to contact us should they require assistance within this specialist field.
