Extradition, Interpol and Mutual Legal Assistance
Guernica 37 regularly advises and represents individuals, foreign governments and judicial authorities in extradition proceedings at all levels. Its members have been involved in a number of high-profile extradition requests for individuals facing trials in the Balkans, South Asia, Latin America, North America, Africa and numerous Member States of the European Union under the European Arrest Warrant Scheme.
Our members have a considerable experience and are available to provide immediate advice and representation to those subject to extradition requests and Interpol warrants and advise States on their treaty obligations, matters of mutual legal assistance and letters of request.
Our members have developed expertise in extradition law in the United Kingdom, United States, Spain and a number of Latin American nations, having pursued extradition requests on behalf of victims of international crimes committed by individuals facing trials in the Courts of the United States and Spain.
Further, they have developed expertise from different perspectives: not only acting on behalf of victims but also, having previously been seconded to the Crown Prosecution Service’s (CPS) Extradition Unit, continue to be instructed on behalf of the CPS in various extradition requests.
We are also available to provide bespoke training on extradition law and our members have in the past provided advice and training to lawyers, judges and government officials in the United Kingdom, United States of America, the Balkans and South Asia.
