9 Bedford Row's extradition team continues to go from strength to strength

09 September 2019

Chambers are pleased to announce that Stuart Allen and Jonathan Swain have joined Chambers with immediate effect.

Stuart and Jonathan, both formerly of Drystone Chambers, are highly regarded extradition specialists and bring a wealth of experience to 9 Bedford Row’s extradition team.  They join a rapidly growing extradition team at 9 Bedford Row, which was bolstered by the arrival of Ben Joyes and Alex Tinsley as Members of Chambers earlier this year.

Specialist extradition practitioners at 9 Bedford Row have experience appearing on behalf of requested persons and requesting authorities in extradition proceedings at all levels. Our team’s unparalleled international expertise means that we are well placed to advise in ‘crisis’ situations and in complex extradition cases involving mass atrocity crimes, issues of political motivation, and abuse of process.

Steven Kay QC, Head of Chambers, said: “We are delighted to welcome Jonathan and Stuart to our fast-growing extradition team. Extradition practice synergises with our international work and reputation, meaning that we are uniquely placed to offer individuals and requesting authorities first rate advocacy services and the benefit of our global network.”
