The UK has extradition arrangements with over 110 countries. Our lawyers have extensive experience and have achieved considerable success in challenging extradition requests from around the world.
Extradition is a niche and complex area of law that requires specialist skills. We at Hodge Jones & Allen possess those skills. Our dedicated team of extradition lawyers will advise you on the grounds that are available to challenge an extradition request. We have a daily presence at Westminster Magistrates’ Court where all extradition cases begin and regularly advise and assist those whose cases have been appealed to the High Court.
We can also advise those who have concerns that they may be subject to extradition requests in the future. The advice received can be very important as a potential extradition request may be avoided by making contact with the requesting state or by instructing one of our international contacts to make representations on your behalf to the courts, to either withdraw a domestic arrest warrant or suspend an outstanding prison sentence.
If an extradition request is unavoidable, we can advise on bail and prepare structured bail packages in preparation for an extradition request being made. This can very often lead to the granting of bail at the first hearing.
If you or someone you know have been arrested, or are at any stage of an extradition process, please contact our specialist team of solicitors, led by Edward Grange (co-author of ‘Extradition Law – a practitioner’s guide’) and Edward Jones on 0800 437 0080. Alternatively, fill out an online enquiry form and we can arrange for a confidential, no obligation discussion of your particular circumstances. If the situation is urgent and outside office hours, please call our 24 hour telephone number on 07659 111 192.
