Sangna ChauhanPartner at Charles Russell Speechlys
Sangna’s clients are generally very international, with the family and assets being split across various countries. Within this context, she advises on their lifetime planning, together with implementing strategies that mean assets will pass smoothly on death.
She believes in an integrated approach to planning: that it should encompass the family’s values and purpose, relevant succession laws and asset protection considerations, as well as purely tax-driven strategies.
Sangna enjoys collaborating with others – whether it is the family themselves, or with their trustees, family offices or other advisers. Whatever the situation, Sangna is determined to achieve the best and most efficient results for her clients.
She has a particular focus on US-UK estate and tax planning, having acted for many clients exposed to both tax and estate planning regimes. She is also an expert on inheritance tax treaties and contributed the chapter on domicile for inheritance tax for Clarke’s Offshore Tax Planning.
