Welcome to our Autumn 5SAH Extradition and International Team's quarterly newsletters.  We are pleased to present a variety of articles from our team of specialist extradition and criminal law barristers.

The team of extradition barristers at 5 St Andrew's Hill are experts in both defending and prosecuting extradition cases. 5 St Andrew's Hill has a strong reputation for extradition work and represents requested persons in proceedings both inside and outside the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) system including Westminster Magistrates’ Court, and appeals to the Divisional and Administrative Courts, Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights.

The team is ranked in the Legal 500 as a leading set, in International Crime and Extradition. Four of our barristers are ranked as leading individuals in the Legal 500 and seven of our extradition barristers are ranked as leaders in the field in Chambers and Partners.
