Philip Vollans successfully awarded the Pegasus Scholarship to India

Thu, 04 Mar 2021

We are proud to announce that Philip Vollans has been successfully awarded the Pegasus Scholarship to India by the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple. The Scholarship is supported by the Kapila Hingorani Foundation, which supports Barristers in developing their practice and understanding of Criminal and Human Rights law within other international jurisdictions. The Scholarship will enable Philip to foster the Inn’s close relationship with legal practitioners in India and to develop a more detailed understanding of international legal issues. It will provide him with the exciting opportunity to work first-hand with Indian lawyers during the progression of such cases.

In recent years, Philip’s burgeoning practice has developed and encompasses areas of Criminal and Regulatory matters both domestically and internationally.

Philip has been instructed to advise senior counsel on the implications of international jurisdictions upon cases in England and Wales, in areas including the obtaining of evidence, enforcement and public interest immunity. He is sought after for being able to identify how to strike a balance between conflicting international jurisdictions.

Previously involved in highly sensitive cases involving cross-boarder issues in competing jurisdictions, Philip relishes the opportunity to cultivate his pre-existing knowledge of the different approaches taken, and the issues that are likely to arise.

“I am very grateful for the exciting opportunity to continue to build upon the Pegasus Trust’s already close relationship with those at the Hingorani Foundation, and look forward to working with senior practitioners in understanding the complexity of common law, and international developments from a different perspective. The opportunity is like no other, and I know that the experience will be one that will always remain with me.”
