"A terrific range of counsel is available at this set, which in a little over 20 years has created a strong identity at the Bar." - Chambers & Partners 2012
Civil practice teams at Doughty Street Chambers have always recognised that our key strength lies in our multi-disciplinary approach to casework. With such diverse expertise our barristers are uniquely placed to address the cross-over issues often interwoven within our cases.
Administrative and public law is at the heart of Doughty Street Chambers with more than 50 barristers of all levels of call practicing in this area.
Doughty Street Chambers is one of the most international sets in the UK.
Sources admire its “genuine commitment to civil liberties” and its “incredibly long history of doing human rights work.”
The Doughty Street Extradition Team has an unrivalled reputation for appearing in many of the most high profile and complex extradition cases.
Members of the team have appeared in many of the leading extradition cases before the Supreme Court, House of Lords, Privy Council, High Court and Magistrates' Court, as well as in courts in Northern Ireland, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Caribbean and around the world. Many of the team’s cases involve issues of fundamental human rights and test cases on evolving areas of the law.
Recent high-profile extradition cases include: Gary McKinnon v USA: USA v Richard O’Dwyer; USA v Babar Ahmad; Sweden v Julian Assange; Serbia v Ganic; USA v Christopher Tappin; Gary Mann v Portugal; Barry & Al-Fawwaz v SSHD; Symeou v Greece; Gomes v Trinidad and Tobago and Norris v USA. As well as appearing on behalf of persons contesting extradition, members of the team have advised and appeared on behalf of governments and judicial authorities of over 30 countries. 5 members of the team appeared before the Supreme Court in 2012 on a test case on how the courts should approach the rights of dependent children in extradition.
Members of the Extradition Team publish books and articles on the fast evolving law on extradition, including the Extradition Law Handbook published by Oxford University Press and the Extradition Law Reports (Southside Legal Publishers).
