Katy Smart

I hold a degree in Law from the University of Leeds. I originally qualified as a barrister and I cross-qualified to become a solicitor. I now specialise in extradition law. I have had successes from the Magistrates' Court to the High Court and the Supreme Court. I am rated in both Chambers and the Legal 500.

Extradition Specialist

I joined Sonn Macmillan Walker in 2016 to expand the extradition team. I have defended hundreds of extradition cases and I specialise in politically motivated requests. I also advise individuals who wish to make representations to INTERPOL. I have considerable experience in defending European Arrest Warrants and I have particular expertise in fighting requests from Russia, Ukraine, UAE, and USA, which usually involve complex litigation, require expert evidence and witnesses from foreign jurisdictions. I pride myself on the network of experts I have created to assist in resisting extradition. I regularly act as advocate for my clients in extradition hearings.

‘resilient, committed to her clients and a good strategist’.

‘she is exceptional and she works tirelessly.’ Chambers 2016

Established track record

I have a wealth of experience in high profile extradition and an established track record of successfully fighting extradition requests.

I am a member of the LSCCA Extradition Sub-Committee and the Extradition Lawyers Association.
