For some years now, we have also been increasingly active in proceedings with cross-border implications (so-called “cross-border-investigations”), e.g. in investigations by foreign prosecution authorities including the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO).

Typical activities include defence against extradition requests, European Arrest Warrants (EAW), international arrest warrants or “Red Notices” from Interpol or European Investigation Orders as well as the assertion of the prohibition of double jeopardy (according to the “ne bis in idem” principle).

In these cross-border-proceedings, our clients regularly profit from our worldwide network of excellent colleagues in all important jurisdictions – the Global Defence Alliance.
