Suna graduated from Queen Mary University in 2010, and completed her Legal Practice Course at College of Law, Bloomsbury in 2011. She joined Bhogal Partners in January 2012 and is a highly experienced solicitor, specialising exclusively in family and criminal law. Suna has been involved in several high profile cases involving domestic and international jurisdiction issues. She is a dedicated, loyal and a valued member of the firm.
Her expertise covers all aspects of family law and has represented a wide range of clients in complex separation, divorce and financial matters, involving high net-worth assets, intervenors, trusts, pre-acquired wealth, non-disclosure and procuring hidden assets both within the UK and overseas. She is well-equipped to adopt a conciliatory negotiated approach or an adversarial stance where necessary. In addition, she advises on pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements and has represented parties in non-molestation injunctions, fact finding hearings and occupation orders.
Suna has acted for parents in private children law proceedings, including child arrangement orders, prohibited steps orders, specific issue orders, enforcement proceedings and has experience in dealing with internal relocation and international child abduction matters in both Hague and non-Hague states. These include parental alienation, implacable hostility, sexual abuse based, protracted contact dispute and domestic abuse cases. Suna is deeply committed to getting the best possible results for her clients, adopting a practical yet sensitive style.
Her strong and robust approach has also led to her being instructed privately in public law care proceedings involving local authorities, concerning serious allegations of harm to children and works diligently in order to reunite children with their families. She has particularly represented vulnerable members of society without capacity, through their litigation friend, in cases involving the Court of Protection.
Her criminal law experience includes advising clients at police stations. She has also acted for clients in criminal litigation at the Magistrates and Crown Courts, ranging from relatively minor offences right through to very serious indictable offences, as well as appeals against convictions and sentences.
Suna takes a tenacious approach to her work applying holistic principles to find the right outcome for her clients. Her passion and pride in her work is reflected in the success she enjoys.
Outside of work, Suna enjoys running, swimming and assisting her brothers who are black belts in karate.
