Extradition Requests in the UK
Extradition in the UK is a streamlined process and moves extremely quickly, particularly in cases concerning arrest warrants issued by European Union countries under Part 1 of the Extradition Act 2003.
Our highly skilled and experience extradition lawyers can advise you in relation to all possible defences to an extradition request.
The team has unparalleled experience in handling complex cases involving politically motivated charges and has substantial experience in dealing with requests from the Russian Federation and other former Soviet States. We have also been involved in high profile cases involving the USA and EU countries.
We specialise in asylum and immigration law, which have become increasingly more relevant in extradition cases.
