Having acted for various requesting states, eg. the USA in Welsh and Thrasher and the Russian Federation in Temerko (not to mention numerous European judicial authorities) Gavin’s extradition practice has focused on defending individuals charged with, or convicted of, serious offences including murder, terrorism and fraud.

Gavin has recently:

  • prevented the extradition to Romania of an individual whose conviction was obtained on inadmissible communications covertly intercepted by the Romanian Intelligence Services
  • prevented the extradition to UAE of the director of an aviation business

He continues to act in relation to the first extraditions to Peru under the 2002 Act – a series of accusation cases involving significant drug trafficking.
