We advise individuals, NGOs, Governments and international organisations on matters of international law. Areas of particular expertise include international extradition and the removal of Interpol red notices, business and human rights, money laundering regulations, death penalty litigation and counter-terrorism.
Members are at the forefront of international litigation ranging from the international criminal courts and tribunals and regional human rights courts to cases before the International Court of Justice, the courts of the European Union and international arbitrations. Barristers are admitted to practice in other national jurisdictions, and regularly appear in the courts of Gibraltar, Hong Kong, Ireland, Singapore and many Caribbean states as well as other countries.
In addition to litigation and legal advice, team members regularly conduct advocacy and human rights training for judges, prosecutors and defence counsel as well as government officials, NGOs, police and military personnel around the globe. Doughty Street barristers have trained the British and US military, NATO, the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office and judges and lawyers in countries such as Afghanistan, Bahrain, Cameroon, Colombia, Libya, Nigeria, Oman, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Tanzania, Tunisia, Turkey, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
