International Crime and Extradition

Criminal litigation is increasingly multi-jurisdictional as advances in digital technology and media cross borders and have a global reach. This means that investigations and proceedings take on an international dimension, involving investigators and judicial authorities from other jurisdictions.

We act for national governments, overseas-based individuals and multi-national corporations in all matters concerning the criminal law. We often work together with the Civil Litigation team to provide our clients with the full scope of strategic advice.

Extradition requests, INTERPOL red notices and requests for Mutual Legal Assistance all fall within our expertise and we have dealt with matters emanating from a wide range of foreign jurisdictions, deploying technical and human rights arguments where appropriate and with success.

We have a particular speciality in advising on matters concerning diplomatic immunity and the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations 1961 and diplomatic immunity. The firm has primary experience of judicial review in this area and is experienced in dealing with the complex and sensitive issues such matters involve.
