Jasvinder is a Partner in the Business Crime team at Peters &Peters. She has significant and extensive experience in advising corporate and individual clients in fraud-related matters, with a firmly established expertise in respect of criminal cartels, extradition, mutual legal assistance, and money laundering and corruption matters. Jasvinder's experience spans almost 20 years and many of her cases have a strong international element. Jasvinder has acted for clients who simultaneously face investigation by the European Commission, US Department of Justice, Canadian Competition Commission and Australian Competition and Consumer Commission. She also advises corporate and individual clients as immunity applicants. Chambers UK notes her ‘extensive experience in cartel defence work’ and her ‘thriving extradition practice’.
Formerly Chair of the Extradition Lawyers Association, Jasvinder has well over a decade of experience in acting for high net-worth individuals from around the world, as well as high-profile Russian nationals, in numerous complex extradition cases involving requests from the government of the Russian Federation. She has succeeded in preventing extradition in all those cases on a number of grounds, including political motivation, abuse of process and human rights. Jasvinder continues to advise individuals from a variety of regions in the world, who face potential extradition requests from other territories, including under the European Arrest Warrant scheme. She also specialises in advice on seeking the removal of Interpol Red Notices, with significant success. In 2013, Jasvinder participated in the US Exchange Visitor Program in relation to the US judicial system. She was invited by the US government in light of her expertise in white-collar crime and extradition, as one of a small group of specially selected individuals, representing a cross-section of key people in UK criminal law enforcement.
Jasvinder's current work also includes advising in respect of cash seizure and forfeiture cases brought under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. She acts for corporate entities in one of the largest cash seizure and parallel money laundering investigations brought by the City of London Police. She also acts in cases involving allegations of corruption, insider dealing and investigations by the FCA, tax and duty evasion, and in professional disciplinary matters and in inquests and independent inquiries. She continues to advise a significant UK bank in connection with the SFO’s investigation into the alleged manipulation of LIBOR.
