Broadly speaking, extradition requests fall into two groups: requests from European countries who are part of the EAW scheme, and requests from countries elsewhere in the world. Each country and individual request gives rise to different issues, many of which are extremely intricate and challenging to navigate.
EU extradition proceedings are intended to be more streamlined due to the European Arrest Warrant pro forma being used throughout most of Europe, and require expert lawyers to represent you and your interests at every juncture.
Outside the EU, procedures vary from country to country and it is vital to have lawyers who are abreast of the latest relevant developmnents worldwide.
In order to fight extradition, your solicitor must gather relevant information within strict time limits.
