When acting in fraud cases, particularly those involving different jurisdictions, Nick had to address a number of extradition and asylum issues, whether to or from the UK and concerning the US, Russia and the CIS, the EU and the Middle East. He began to develop a separate practice in these areas. For example, in 2013 he acted for a Russian client called M in Part 2 Extradition Act proceedings regarding an alleged high profile murder in Russia of a police officer, who had allegedly raped a child. The case involves ECHR objections relating to Russian prison conditions, evidence obtained through torture and unfair trial procedures. Nick was required to travel to Moscow and liaised with Russian lawyers and authorities. He now acts for Russian and CIS nationals on a regular basis, assisting them with extradition, asylum claims and claims for humanitarian protection, alongside providing advice on related commercial and financial issues.
