Career

 Arantxa Geijo Jiménez is a Spanish attorney who is an expert in international law, particularly in international criminal law and human rights law. In addition to her practice, she is also currently Of Counsel at Freeh Sporkin & Sullivan, LPP.

Arantxa is admitted to the List of Counsels and Assistants to Counsels of the International Criminal Court and is special duty counsel for victims of gender violence.

She has previously served as counsel for the INTERPOL General Secretariat Office of Legal Affairs at their headquarters in Lyon, France, where she focused on complex international criminal arrest warrant requests (Red Notices) and represented INTERPOL in litigation, including challenges by individuals to the issuance of Red Notices against them. After her time at INTERPOL, Arantxa served as Senior Counsel at boutique law firm in London, where she focused on INTERPOL cases and other international law matters.

Prior to that, Arantxa served as an attorney at Baltasar Garzón Abogados, the International Justice Team of Amnesty International – International Secretariat, and the Governance Programme of the Spanish Agency for Development and Cooperation (AECID) in Guatemala. Arantxa also advised clients in numerous cases both at the national level in Europe, Asia, the Americas, Middle East and North and Central Africa, and in cases before the European Court of Human Rights, the Inter-American Commission ofHuman Rights, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Committee, the UN Committee on Enforced Disappearances and the UN Working Group on Enforced and Involuntary Disappearances, the Permanent Court of Arbitration in the Hague, and the World Bank’s International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).

Arantxa has successfully represented numerous individuals before the Commission for the Control of INTERPOL’s Files (an independent structure established to review individual challenges to Red Notices issued by INTERPOL), helping them navigate the complex and arcane rules and procedures of INTERPOL and securing the deletion of the Red Notices against them, thereby restoring their rights to travel freely internationally, without the attendant fear of illegal arrests or detention while crossing borders.

She is also an associate professor of Law at Valencia International University.
