Yuriy Nemets

Founder of Red Notice Abuse Report, attorney, Managing member at NEMETS Law Firm (Washington, DC)

Yuriy has been practicing law for over nineteen years.  He has been advising and representing individuals challenging INTERPOL red notices and diffusions since 2013.  He has also testified as an expert witness on the subject.  His articles about INTERPOL abuse and the rights of individuals on the international wanted list are published in authoritative law reviews.  At the request of the United States Helsinki Commission, Yuriy has drafted amendments to INTERPOL’s rules necessary to protect the rights of individuals on the international wanted list and amendments to legislation in the United States to stop the practice of using INTERPOL red notices and diffusions as evidence against individuals in bond and extradition hearings.  Yuriy is a member of a working group on reforming INTERPOL.

Yuriy is a graduate of Northwestern University School of Law (JD, LLM) and Moscow State Law Academy (Russia) (LLB, PhD in law). Prior to starting his own practice, he worked at one of the most prominent litigation law firms in the United States (ranked top 30 by Vault Law 100) and one of the most distinguished law firms in Russia.  Yuriy also worked as an in-house counsel at Yukos, one of the world’s largest privately owned energy companies at the time, where he successfully headed the company’s litigation and recoveries department.  He is licensed to practice law in the District of Columbia and New York.

In addition to INTERPOL defense and international extradition, Yuriy specializes in domestic and international litigation and arbitration, cross-border investments, international trade, transportation, corporate, banking, intellectual property law, and white collar defense.  In addition to his publications about INTERPOL abuse, Yuriy has authored articles about intellectual property, defamation, and banking law.  Yuriy has given interviews about INTERPOL abuse and the rights of individuals on the international wanted list to media outlets and has been consulted on the topic by scholars and reporters writing for The Washington Post, The Atlantic, Foreign Affairs, The National Interest, and The Journal of Democracy.  He has also spoken on the subject as a panelist at events organized by the American Bar Association and by the Association of Certified Financial Crime Specialists (ACFCS) as well as at the Texas A&M University School of Law.
