Within: Leading Juniors

Louisa Collins - 5 St Andrews Hill ‘ A formidable advocate who presents complex points in a compelling manner. ’

Within: International crime and extradition

5 St Andrews Hill is well respected for its strength in extradition cases. Known for bringing 'a powerful armoury to international cases of the highest profile', Ben Keith is acting for the Azerbaijan government in a request for the extradition of Zamira Hajiyeva, who is the recipient of the UK's first unexplained wealth order (UWO) following allegations of a multimillion-pound fraud against the International Bank of Azerbaijan. Meanwhile, Louisa Collins, who 'brings tranquillity to high-pressure cases', represents the Armenian government in its first extradition request to the UK concerning an allegation of drugs importation.
