Specialist Extradition Solicitors
Extradition law is governed by the Extradition Act 2003. If you have been accused of committing a crime in a foreign country, the UK can appeal for your return in order to prosecute you under English law, and vice versa.
Specialist systems are in place internationally in order to apprehend those suspected of committing a crime which is why our early involvement is essential to your case. We can advise and assist you at any stage, from your arrest or warrant for arrest to extradition proceedings in the courts. Our dedicated extradition solicitors will advise you every step of the way and we can discuss the possibility of getting your extradition proceedings withdrawn.
Extradition Law Proceedings
The EU has special regulations in place in order to make extradition proceedings swift and easy to impose across EU countries. A European Arrest Warrant (EAW) imposes strict time limits and seeks to enforce a quick extradition. If you have been arrested under an EAW, it is imperative that you contact us at the earliest possible time to ensure we can build the best case possible and successfully represent you.
