Extradition Proceedings

Proceedings are brought via the Serious and Organised Crime Agency (SOCA), Extradition Unit and Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). Cartwright King has significant experience in working with all these agencies and will liaise directly with them on your behalf throughout the proceedings.

Extradition is the transfer of a person accused of criminal offences in a country outside of the UK to that country to be prosecuted or serve a criminal sentence. We understand how stressful, complex and life changing these proceedings are. Our reputation in criminal defence means we have all the experience to fight for you to bring the best results possible for you and your family.

Businesses and individuals may find themselves under investigation from other jurisdictions. You may receive a request for Mutual Legal Assistance (MLA) or find out that you are under investigation for various criminal offences.  Knowing how to respond to such requests and understanding your rights will determine how we can help you reach the best possible outcome.
