Meet the Team

The trainee recruitment team is headed up by Ben Sheldrick.  Ben is supported by Abigail Priest and Sundeep Rathod.  Your application to Magrath will initially be reviewed by any one member of the recruitment team.


Abigail joined Magrath in 2007 as a Trainee Solicitor.  She studied at Durham University and took a couple of gap years before completing her LPC.  Abigail did her first seat in Employment law and also trained in Company Commercial law, Immigration law and Property law.  Abigail qualified into the Company Commercial department in September 2009 and has been involved in trainee recruitment since that time.  Abigail coordinates all first and second round interviews.

Abigail is a school governor and a mentor at the College of Law providing guidance to GDL and LPC students who are in need of assistance in obtaining training contracts.  She advises on preparation of CVs, cover letters and general information about what it is to be a commercial solicitor.



Sundeep joined Magrath in December 2012 as a Solicitor in the Immigration department. He completed his Law degree in 2006 and then took a gap year working in the Civil Service. Sundeep completed the LPC at the College of Law in 2008.

Having enjoyed a seat in immigration as part of his training contract, Sundeep decided to pursue a career in immigration law. Sundeep qualified as a Solicitor in April 2011 and currently specialises in all aspects of Business Immigration.

Sundeep is involved in the review of all CVs, shortlisting of candidates and first round interviews.
