Sangna specialises in tax and estate planning for UK and international clients. She specialises in UK tax planning for non-domiciliaries and has particular experience in US-UK tax planning. In particular, she focuses on wills, trusts and alternative structure-based planning for high-net worth individuals.
Sangna’s areas of expertise are UK and international tax, trust and estate planning. Within this diverse area, she has a particular focus on cross-border estate planning, dealing with the complexities created by local succession and matrimonial property regimes, the impact of the EU Succession Regulation within Europe, and the interaction of UK and local tax laws. Sangna believes in an integrated approach to estate planning that encompasses succession laws and asset protection considerations, as well as purely tax-driven strategies.

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.
