Criminal Law in Canary Wharf

Criminal proceedings can no doubt lead to extremely worrying times. Whether you have are fully contesting a case or wish to plead guilty to an offence we will stand beside you throughout your case and go the extra distance to try and ensure that you receive the best possible outcome.

Whether your case is at the Police Station, Magistrates Court, Crown Court or Appeal stage, we provide expert advice and representation and have dealt with a number of notable cases.

Extradition in Canary Wharf

Whether you face an accusation in another jurisdiction or have already been convicted of an offence, we represent clients in all forms of extradition request. We have gained particular expertise in requests from both European Countries and jurisdictions outside of the EU.

In 2018, Jason Lartey of our firm was the supervising solicitor of the team involved in the case of Lauri Love v USA. This was a landmark case because it was the first time that the Forum Bar to extradition had successfully been argued at the High Court. It was also notable as a rare occasion on which the High Court had discharged a requested person facing extradition to the United States of America. The decision demonstrates the willingness of the English Courts, despite the demands of the US, to step in and protect their citizens in cases where extradition would be oppressive.

We have also had recent success in Albanian and Polish extradition requests, including the successful discharge of a murder conviction warrant in January 2020. In this case not only were we able to assist in having the warrant discharged, we were also able to secure bail for our client. For criminal lawyers in Canary Wharf, contact us.

Cash Seizure & Forfeiture in Canary Wharf

Cash seizure and forfeiture proceedings often occur where a person is suspected of committing an offence contrary to the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.

 

We have experience of legitimate explanations being ignored by the authorities, who often assume “drug dealer” or “tax evader” when somebody is stopped with a large amount of cash.

 

If this has happened to you, we are in a position to help.

 

Whatever stage your case is at in relation to cash seizure or forfeiture, it is never too late to obtain legal advice.

 

We have experience of dealing with cash seizure and forfeiture proceedings. We leave no stone unturned in order to have legitimate cash which has been seized restored to its owners.
