Chambers has a team of specialist extradition lawyers who appear daily at Westminster Magistrates’ Court and the Administrative Court defending and prosecuting extradition requests.

We have excellent links with foreign lawyers who assist us in fighting extradition requests.
We are available to provide expert advice and representation in this highly specialised field at short notice if necessary. Members of our extradition team regularly lecture on the subject and publish articles on extradition in specialist legal journals such as New Law Journal. We are often asked to speak about cases by national and international news outlets such as the BBC, Sky News, and Reuters. We have been involved in some of the most high-profile extradition cases of recent times such as the globally reported case of Italy v Herba involving the alleged kidnap of an English model in Italy in 2018.
We have also had various articles in the New Law Journal which can be viewed here;
