INTERPOL Defense

Our firm represents clients illegitimately included in INTERPOL databases by advocating on their behalf before the Commission for the Control of INTERPOL’s Files. Due to our efforts, in many cases, the Commission has agreed to delete or cancel information about affected individuals. Our attorneys utilize arguments based on international human rights law, as well as INTERPOL's own legal documents, to advocate for individuals.
