International Crime Solicitors

International Crime Solicitors

Our international crime team is frequently asked to advise foreign nationals who are in the United Kingdom and are subject to investigations in other jurisdictions.  This frequently involves consideration of complex Treaty arrangements between the United Kingdom and countries throughout the world.

Our expertise in this field coupled with our vast network of international lawyers enables us to provide high quality advice tailored to the individual needs of our clients.  This advice is usually undertaken in collaboration with lawyers in the country where the investigation is being undertaken.

This area of law requires a multi-jurisdictional approach and the advantage of having an international network of lawyers ensures that seamless and high quality advice from trusted professionals is always available.

The areas where we frequently advise in this area of criminal law are:

  • War crimes
  • National security issues
  • Extradition
  • European Arrest Warrant
  • Mutual assistance in criminal cases
  • Money laundering
  • Complex international fraud cases

In addition, we are experts in the field of prisoner repatriation and regularly advise on the Treaty obligations that apply in this area.  This involves a detailed understanding of how sentences are translated when prisoners are repatriated otherwise it can have unforeseen and adverse consequences for a particular client.  Indeed this area can lead to applications for judicial review, remission, pardons and renewed applications for leave to appeal to the Courts.

We have advised in connection with repatriation of prisoners to and from Ireland, to Russia, Poland, Spain, Germany and we are currently advising in connection with a transfer to Greece.

If you would like us to act for you please call our 24/7 helpline now on 01708 766155 or request a call back through the website.
