Sugun has a wider range of experience in all areas of common law including a vast experience of the daily pressures faced by Solicitors and of a valuable insight into client care from a different prospective.  Such experience specialised her in dealing with lay and professional clients with professional manner while working under pressure.  Sugun is frequently instructed by the Secretary of State for Home Department and her extensive Immigration and Asylum experience had driven her to read 18 months Joint European MA in Human Rights, War Crime and Genocide.  Sugun’s Joint European MA background has assisted her in an array of cases where an international public law had been an issue.  
Sugun’s initial training at the Bar was in Family law and since qualifying, she has worked on cases involving various aspects of asylum, immigration and human rights law, general criminal law, family law and housing law.   Sugun’s practice includes, commercial law, including international business, contract, employment, international human rights, landlord and Tenant, licensing, money, private and charity Trust law and tort matters.
Recently Sugun has developed a growing High Court practice in matters relating to Immigration and Asylum law by drafting successful grounds for Judicial Review or representing at permission hearings.
