Jones Whyte, the Glasgow-based law firm, has promoted Phulah Pall to associate, and head of Immigration.

Mr Pall began his traineeship with a criminal law firm in 2013 and became a qualified solicitor in 2015.

He followed his passion for human rights and began to work with one of the leading specialist immigration law firms in Glasgow, dealing with a variety of cases including asylum, humanitarian protection and refugee family reunion, before joining Jones Whyte in 2019.

In the last 12 months, Mr Pall has taken on a number of additional responsibilities and managed the changing circumstances within the immigration market exceptionally well.

Ross Jones, partner at Jones Whyte, said: “We are very happy to be able to announce this promotion today. It is always hugely rewarding and incredibly important to see our team continuing to develop and progress. As a relatively young firm in the marketplace, we place great emphasis on continued training and development, equipping us to succeed and win for our clients.

“Phulah is a fantastic example of this ethos in practice, progressing rapidly up through the firm to now head of Immigration. I am looking forward to continuing to work closely with Phulah in the years to come, as we continue to expand and develop our Immigration department.”
