Specialized in extradition proceedings

For more than 20 years now we have been defending our clients in Germany against unjustified extradition to other countries. Even if the courts have gained a lot of experience in the same period, there is a worldwide tendency to satisfy extradition requests from other states. Anyone who is affected by this as an individual must defend themselves. We make our experience available for this purpose.

Because of our specialization in extradition, International and European Arrest Warrants, we are always up-to-date with the latest case law of the German Higher Regional Courts, the Federal Constitutional Court and the European Court of Human Rights and can track any promising aspect. And equally important for a successful defense against extradition are our years of experience and the network of contacts to lawyers in other countries.

 

International Arrest Warrant

Experience cannot be invented. The successes of recent years - including constitutional complaints in Germany against extradition - confirm our specialisation and concentrated work.

The spectrum of our mandates includes "exotic" countries as well as the neighbouring countries in Europe, from which traditionally most extradition requests come to Germany as European Arrest Warrants.

Regardless of where the extradition request comes from, the last word is not spoken before the courts have decided.   We fight for your rights as an individual. If necessary, we can go through all instances for you right up to the European Court of Human Rights. But in any case we are looking for the earliest possible success.


 

 

European Arrest Warrant

Extradition on the basis of a European arrest warrant is not imperative. In many cases, it fails because of desolate detention conditions in other European states and other obstacles to extradition or because of formal requirements. Extradition of German nationals is only possible to a limited extent.

 

 

The national arrest warrant

Wanted by warrant! What for some is a vision of horror for the public prosecutor is a legally strictly regulated instrument for prosecution, which may only be used as long as the legal requirements are met.

 

 

 

Extradition proceedings, the long arm, even of the unjust

In extradition proceedings in Germany we are confronted with states whose human rights standards are actually low enough to disappear. The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) therefore established in 1989 the special responsibility of European courts for persecuted persons in extradition proceedings.

 

 

 

Constitutional complaint in extradition proceedings

In Germany, the constitutional complaint to the Federal Constitutional Court in extradition proceedings is the last appeal. It is regularly lodged in a great hurry at a time when extradition is imminent and the constitutional complaint must therefore be accompanied by an application for a temporary injunction.
