Extradition

Toronto Extradition Lawyers

Neuberger & Partners LLP is a highly-skilled criminal law firm serving the Greater Toronto Area and nearby Ontario communities with experience with high-profile extradition cases. Our Toronto extradition lawyers have the experience, resources and proven record of success* to defend clients from extradition in Canada and from investigations in foreign countries.

Extradition From Canada

Extradition is the process through which another country asks for the surrender of an individual who is alleged to have committed a crime. Extradition treaties between Canada and foreign countries govern this process and apply to various crimes, including homicidefraud and drugs.

Before you are extradited, you are entitled to bail, an extradition hearing and submissions before the Minister of Justice. We have represented clients in these hearings, including hearings involving extradition to the United States, Belgium, England, Italy and other countries across the globe. In all aspects of our criminal defence practice, we thoroughly prepare our clients for hearings, meetings and investigations, and we provide skilled representation at every stage. In addition, Joseph Neuberger has worked closely with counsel retained in foreign countries to commence the defence process, even before formal extradition proceedings have commenced.

Investigations in Foreign Countries

Working with a lawyer during an initial foreign investigation can allow you to prevent extradition proceedings and a criminal record in Canada. Through our years of practice, we have assisted individuals and professionals with investigations in:

  • Belgium
  • Costa Rica
  • United States, including Texas, New York, Florida and Pennsylvania
  • Bahamas
  • Italy

We represent clients under investigation or charged with a variety of crimes. We are experienced at handling complex financial investigations involving fraud, money laundering and other property crimes. We utilize experts in a variety of fields, such as forensic accounting, to understand and evaluate the evidence against you. We will leverage every resource to help you challenge the case against you.
