Extradition and Cross-Jurisdictional Defence

We have experience in representing defendants facing Category 1 and Category 2 extradition.

As well as opposing European Arrest Warrants, we have also successfully defeated attempts to extradite clients to Russia and to the USA. Our success lies in our ability to act quickly and to take the initiative in these proceedings. 

Our experience of negotiating with foreign law enforcement agencies also stands us in good stead when it comes to resolving cross-jurisdictional issues. We have acted for clients across Europe, the US, Russia and the Middle East, as well as on military bases in Germany, Northern Ireland, Cyprus and Afghanistan. 

Colin Byrne is admitted counsel to the International Criminal Court.
