ABOUT ME

Sangita's long standing clients value her... innate and unique ability to make her clients feel "safe" and for deals to be handled as if they were her own.

AviGhna was created by Sangita Sangar. Sangita founded the business in 2014 after many years working in the City and West End where she was an Equity Partner at a leading West End firm.

AviGhna, pronounced ‘A-vig-naa’ is a word from Sanskrit, meaning “the remover of obstacles”.

Sangita is an experienced property lawyer dealing in acquisitions and disposals of commercial property, developments, property management, corporate support and landlord and tenant work.

She also acts for clients in buying and selling high value homes mainly in Mayfair, Regents Park, Knightsbridge, St Johns Wood, Hampstead, Chelsea, Kensington, Notting Hill and Holland Park.

Have a look at the list of services below for further details.

She is a high leverage, well-connected rain maker, focussing on corporates, family businesses and high net worth individuals. She acts for institutional, investment and occupational clients and has huge strength and depth in her practice.

Her long standing clients value her excellent technical ability, her skill in seeing all the detail as well her ‘birds eye’ view of the commercial reality of the transaction and her innate and unique ability to make her clients feel “safe” and for deals to be handled as if they were her own.

AviGhna represents Sangita’s personal values of:

Excellence: Integrity: Openness.

It was formed after a deep desire to continue to provide her valued clients the highest level of legal advice with the freedom to pick and choose whom she represents and what work she undertakes.

SERVICES

Residential Property

We provide a full service in every aspect of buying, selling and financing high-value residential properties whether this is intended as family home, an investment or a development acquisition. Many of our clients require property deals to be completed quickly and therefore, we are used to working under pressure and with several parties on a deal. As well as every type of sale and purchase, we can advise on more specialist areas such as planning, financing, tax and leasehold enfranchisements.

Commercial Property

We are experienced in acting for clients operating in all areas of business and across all sectors whatever their space requirements. We advise our clients on the diverse issues and problems with the occupation of property, from individual lease negotiations to the acquisition, disposal and restructuring of property portfolios for corporate occupiers. This includes:

  • acquisitions and disposals both of leasehold and freehold commercial property
  • acting for both landlords and tenants in complex lease negotiations
  • dispute avoidance and resolution
  • advising on all aspects of subletting and assignment of leases including licences to assign, licences to sublet and licences for alterations

We have acted for office occupiers in transactions ranging from the London headquarters of a NASDAQ listed US company to advising on short term lettings and licences. In the leisure sector we deal with the acquisition and disposal of hotels, restaurants and bars. For retail occupiers we have dealt with the acquisition and disposal of stores from flagship stores through to pop up shops and boutique stores.

EXPERIENCE

  • Acting for a prestigious London Museum in negotiating and taking leases of football sized, storage bunkers in Salisbury for the storage of complex, delicate museum artefacts. This involved a visit to the premises whereby we walked the entire site which was built into the hills and then worked closely with the freeholder’s solicitors to put leases in place to reflect this unique space;
  • Advising a well known, NASDAQ listed company (market capitalisation $37 billion) on their requirements for London HQ taking commercial space of 23,000 square feet. This was a complex, multi party negotiation;
  • Acting for family businesses in the sale and purchase of high value properties in Belgravia, Mayfair and Knightsbridge and prime central London areas;
  • Acting for a large pension fund in the sale of a retail park for £23 million with multiple tenancies;
  • Acting for clients in a joint venture with Finchatton for the purchase of the Penthouse at the Connaught Hotel, Mayfair, London. We advised our clients on the purchase, financing, structure and joint venture;
  • Advising the Church Commissioners who were part of a multi-party collaboration of the historic move and re-erection of Temple Bar designed by Sir Christopher Wren, from Theobalds Park, Hertfordshire to Paternoster Square, near St Pauls Cathedral, London. Temple Bar forms a beautiful gateway into the redeveloped Paternoster Square;
  • Acting for the Church Commissioners, Great Portland Estate, the Crown Estate, Somerset House, the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum in the sale, purchase and restructuring of different types of properties (office, retail, industrial), both leasehold and freehold.
