SMQ has experience in dealing with this rapidly growing area of law which sees a number of individuals frequently arrested under a European Arrest Warrant or where International extradition is sought, usually linked to drug trafficking and serious fraud.

The Firm is one of a few who has the experience and knowledge to represent clients in this  specialised field of law. We understand that technical legal argument as well as a client’s Human Rights are vital considerations when dealing with an extradition case, which is why the Firm is able to assist from the early stages of proceedings before a EAW is issued right through to the Appellate Courts where necessary.  

Extradition requests to the UK are governed by the Extradition Act 2003 and the Firm is able to represent on both Part 1 and 2 warrant requests.
