Peters & Peters

Firm works with overseas counsel to avoid extradition by successfully challenging domestic Italian arrest warrant

The firm acted for four businessmen subject to a European Arrest Warrant issued by the Italian authorities in relation to the Italian offence of ‘fraudulent bankruptcy’ following the insolvency and collapse of certain Italian companies of which the individuals were directors. Peters & Peters worked closely with the clients’ Italian lawyers to bring a challenge in Italy to the underlying domestic arrest warrant on the basis that there were no grounds to impose detention. After the success of this challenge, the European Arrest Warrant was dropped.
