We are delighted that the firm has been recognised again in Legal 500 as one of the country’s leading Business Immigration Law Firms. Published at the end of September, Legal 500 2021 says:
Specialist business immigration firm Magrath Sheldrick LLP has extensive experience in the financial services sector, running global mobility programmes for major banking clients. A key area of work is advising on developing compliance and legal right to work policies. In addition to corporates, the team also assists individuals seeking entry to the UK as investors, entrepreneurs or performers. Managing partner Ben Sheldrick – ‘a scholar of the law and an expert voice on Brexit’ – has a great deal of expertise in supporting multinational companies and the global mobility departments of large organisations. Senior partner Chris Magrath is known for his work in US and UK immigration matters; Alfreda Joubert focuses her practice on advising private clients and high-net-worth individuals.
‘The firm maintains a level of personal service that is appropriate for premier companies and their executive corps. The partners also maintain close contact with the government officers managing key functions – visa services, citizen support, and audit and investigation.’
‘The team offers us an outstanding level of service in all aspects; they are very responsive, give us pragmatic advice for the specific situation as well as regular immigration updates. Our employees are very happy with the service they receive throughout a process that can make them nervous. We believe we get excellent value for money.’
‘One of the things I find great with Magrath is how approachable they are; no question is too trivial for them to answer – and believe me, there are days I need reminding of the basics. They ensure that we are kept up to date with any changes and have been so helpful through the whole Brexit period. We have a high volume of EU staff in London who we have had to manage and they have been very collaborative on this.’
‘Fantastic client service and real expertise.’
‘Chris Magrath is never without a solution, and is aggressive on behalf of clients while maintaining ease of relationships with government officials.’
‘Ben Sheldrick is a scholar of the law, and a particularly expert voice on the parliamentary and constitutional progress of Brexit. He is also an excellent client service relationship partner.’
‘Joanne Taylor understands our business and culture.’
‘Joanne Taylor is easy to talk to and understands the needs and sometimes the panic of some of our employees, she can explain things in plain English rather than just blinding people with immigration/solicitor speak, and that is needed by some of our employees. Some have never had a visa or work permit and it is a scary subject for them. Joanne is proactive and readily will suggest coming in to update our teams which helps us all in the long run.’
‘Ben Sheldrick’s client service is fabulous.’
We are delighted that our team has been recognised in this way.
