We understand that facing extradition can be overwhelming, and we are committed to providing our clients with the guidance and support they need. Our skilled lawyers work closely with clients to develop a strong defence strategy, protect their rights, and ensure they receive fair treatment under the law.

Our goal is to provide our clients with the highest level of legal representation and support during what can be a very stressful and challenging time. We will work tirelessly to protect your rights and ensure that you receive the best possible outcome in your extradition case.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in handling extradition cases. We can assist in several ways, including:

  • Review the extradition request to ensure that all legal requirements are met by the requested country or state ;
  • Negotiate with relevant authorities to minimise the risk of extradition;
  • Challenge extradition requests in court if they do not meet legal requirements or violate the person’s rights;
  • Provide legal representation at extradition hearings and appeals; and
  • Advocate for the person’s rights and ensuring that they receive fair treatment under the law.

Frequently asked question

What are the steps in the extradition process?

The extradition process involves a formal request from the requesting country, followed by a review and hearing by the requested country. If approved, the requested country surrenders the person to the requesting country, where they may face legal proceedings. The requested country may also request assurances of fair treatment and impose conditions on the extradition, such as limiting charges or requiring the person’s return after legal proceedings.

Seek legal advice as soon as possible to understand the best course of action.

What are the potential consequences of extradition?

If you are extradited, you will be transferred to the requesting country to face charges or serve a sentence. This can result in serious consequences, including lengthy prison terms and the loss of your freedom.

Therefore, it is crucial that you seek legal advice as soon as to minimise the risk of extradition and protect your rights.

Why is it important to engage a lawyer early on?

If you or someone you know is facing extradition, time is of the essence.

However, the specific circumstances of each case can vary, and it is important to consult a lawyer to evaluate your case and help you determine your legal options.
