Welcome to our February 2020, 5SAH Extradition and International quarterly newsletter.  We are pleased to present a variety of articles from our team of specialist extradition and international law barristers.

Our team recognises that 2020 will be a challenging year for practitioners working in Extradition and International law.  Brexit will impact and shape this area of law in unprecedented ways.  We will provide updates on the significant changes for our clients to keep them one step ahead.

5SAH are experts in both defending and prosecuting in Extradition and International cases. We also have extensive experience of removing Interpol red notices and the subsequent asylum and extradition proceedings. Our barristers have a strong reputation, nationally and internationally.  We work with teams of UK solicitors and foreign extradition lawyers as well as academic and political experts to provide the best service to our clients.

The team are ranked in Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500. 

The newsletter features the following articles:

  • Rebecca Hill: Examines the key themes in Extradition proceedings from 2019.
  • Hilary Lennox: Irish citizens in the UK after Brexit.
  • Georgia Beatty: R v Egorova & Ors – Russian prison conditions and the importance of effective monitoring.
