Criminal law is increasingly international. Actions taken by a person in one country may become the subject of an investigation in another, with the risk of this leading to an extradition request or European Arrest Warrant (EAW). Businesses and individuals may find themselves the subject of entirely unexpected enquiries and requests from investigators from other jurisdictions.
In some cases, attempts may be made to compel testimony for proceedings in other countries, or an individual's extradition may be sought. Some criminal offences, such as corruption offences and certain war crimes and associated allegations, can be prosecuted in a country that has little or no connection to the place where the offences are alleged to have occurred.
We are often asked to advise and represent foreign nationals in police investigations, also advising the relevant embassies where necessary.
We have a superb international network of international lawyers with whom we work on extradition, mutual legal assistance requests and international investigations into offences such as corruption, cartels, fraud and money laundering.
