Having acted for various requesting states, including the United States, the Russian Federation and many European judicial authorities, Gavin’s extradition practice is now focused on defending individuals charged with, or convicted of, serious offences including murder, terrorism and fraud.

Gavin has prevented the extradition to:

  • Germany of a UK national for tax evasion
  • UAE of the UK director of an aviation business for dishonoured cheques
  • The Czech Republic of a UK businessman charged with offences arising from a ‘lost weekend’ in Prague

In addition, Gavin acted in the first ever extraditions to Peru (a series of accusation cases involving significant drug trafficking) and in extradition proceedings brought by Spain for the largest shipment of cocaine ever to be intercepted in European waters.
