This central London firm specialises in business immigration and employment law.

The firm: Established in 1990, Magrath Sheldrick LLP, formerly Magrath LLP, has been one of the UK's pre-eminent specialist immigration and employment practices for nearly 30 years. Personal relationships, expert skills and a very commercial approach to business has helped distinguish this ambitious independent firm as a legal brand of choice.

Clients include major investment banks as well as global corporates across a range of sectors including healthcare, entertainment, IT and construction and a range of hedge funds, finance houses, industry executives and wealthy individuals. Clients value commercial acumen, consistently high service levels, and tailored approach from a firm that provides them with a personal service.

Partners are recognised as experts in their respective fields, and are regular contributors to the debate on key issues in their sectors, as well as speaking at business events throughout the UK and internationally.

Types of work undertaken: Magrath Sheldrick LLP is recognised as a major force in business immigration. It was the first practice in the UK to offer a US immigration law department and a global immigration law service to add to its substantial UK practice to help businesses locate their personnel worldwide. Magrath Global (Singapore) and a network of global immigration specialists provide international reach and expertise, which is underpinned by one of the largest teams of expert corporate immigration lawyers operating in the UK today.

Magrath Sheldrick LLP is seen as pivotal in helping businesses manage the implications of constant immigration changes with Chris Magrath and Ben Sheldrick recognised as thought leaders able to deliver creative solutions.

The firm's employment department is highly regarded and acts for numerous institutions, major corporates and high-ranking executives, dealing with a host of compliance and strategic employment matters. The employment team has particular knowledge of transatlantic employment issues and data protection. It is regularly trusted by other law firms to deal with conflicted cases or those where the team has specific technical expertise. Head of employment Adele Martins leads an excellent team, which focuses on delivering pragmatic employment law and HR strategy and providing commercial solutions to employment disputes. The team also acts for private clients dealing with complex or high-risk employment issues, negotiating contract and exit agreements and providing strategic guidance on workplace disputes.

The firm's dispute resolution expertise deals with breaches of contract, including debt and other financial disputes, corporate and personal insolvency, professional negligence and international trade and commission disputes.

Magrath Sheldrick LLP has created a substantial corporate immigration and employment practice and continues to grow across these core areas. Clients are attracted by a personal, partner-led relationship and an integrated focus on their issues, be they business or personal.
