We regularly act for individuals who are sought by foreign countries to face criminal proceedings or to serve sentences if they have already been convicted.

Most extradition cases are resolved in court but we are always aware of the possibility of negotiated settlements and to that end we can contact foreign governments to investigate alternative outcomes. For example, it can be possible to make representations to the foreign judicial authority to withdraw extradition requests for trivial offences where a fine would suffice.

In more serious cases, plea bargaining can result in a more favourable outcome on return. Such a non-adversarial approach can have the benefit of reducing the length of proceedings (and consequent strain on the individual facing extradition) and enabling agreement to be reached more easily on bail pending the conclusion of the case.
