Extradition

Criminal defence lawyers in Germany – criminal defence against extradition requests

Extradition is the process where one country requests the return of individuals either accused of criminal offences or to serve a sentence.

In 2015/2016  Rademacher & Horst  - Criminal Defence Lawyers in Germany  - won extradition cases in the German Federal Constitutional Court and we have extended our series of successful outcomes at the Higher Regional Courts (see our references). Our clients come to us because of our reputation, expertise and our unremitting drive to provide solutions.

Rademacher & Horst  offers advice both to individuals in Germany concerned about extradition to other jurisdictions as well as individuals who are concerned about extradition to Germany from another country. We provide discreet, effective and expert advice. Results-oriented, our reputation as Criminal Defence Lawyers in Germany  has been established over many years.

We enjoy a busy and varied practice and we are experienced in representing individuals facing extradition proceedings both within the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) system and internationally. We practise nationwide at high level, as shown by the number of high profile cases in which we have been instructed.

As a part of a continually evolving mutual legal assistance system, extradition law is frequently related to evidence and material from other jurisdictions . We are familiar with questions of inadmissibility of such evidence, provided by the requesting State.

Extradition law is a complex and technical area. We are familiar with the technical and procedural arguments and have particular expertise in identifying the grounds on which extradition can be barred by the court, such as 'double jeopardy', absence of specialty provisions, passage of time and the large spectrum of extraneous considerations. We are used to dealing with the implications that arise from race, religion and political opinions and we are expert at arguing points arising from the European Convention on Human Rights.

We encourage clients to contact us as early as possible for assistance in extradition cases, as such cases are processed by the courts without delay. If you think we can help you please contact us on 00 (49) 211 1718380 or duesseldor@ra-anwalt.de
