JMW Solicitors has bolstered its Business Crime and Regulation team in London following continued growth in extradition enquiries, welcoming specialist Angela Leskaj as Associate.
Angela specialises in crime and extradition, with extensive experience representing clients who are subject to Interpol red notices or international arrest warrants as well as defending extradition requests.
Recent cases include the representation of a Croatian national resisting extradition relating to drugs supply, and advising a client at a High Court appeal in respect of a request from Hungary, on the basis that assurances on prison conditions were not compliant with the Human Rights Act.
Angela brings considerable expertise in successfully defending extradition requests in both EU and non-EU extradition proceedings. This compliments the JMW team’s close relationships with a wide network of international lawyers, adding significant value to clients.
Daniel Martin, Head of JMW Solicitors’ Business Crime and Regulation team in London, said: “We have continued to see an increase in complex extradition cases – particularly in the wake of Brexit – so it is fantastic to welcome Angela to the team, further cementing our expertise in this area. Angela’s arrival adds depth to the range of services we can offer to clients who are defending extradition requests.”
