Saranya graduated with a Bachelor of Laws (First Class) from the University of Birmingham, a member of the prestigious Russell Group. She was recently admitted to the Singapore Bar as an Advocate and Solicitor of the Supreme Court in July 2021. Prior to getting called, Saranya trained at several small to medium sized firms, where she gained experience in criminal and civil litigation and handled a variety of matrimonial disputes.
Her experience in criminal litigation extends to assisting on matters involving a spectrum of offences, including sexual offences, drug offences, traffic offences, offences for causing hurt/grievous hurt, theft and giving false information to a public servant. Notably, Saranya has assisted in two successful acquittals, including a migrant worker charged with causing grievous hurt and another of a businesswoman charged with 10 counts of corruption.
Saranya has also assisted in a variety of civil disputes, including contractual claims, property-related disputes and minority shareholder oppression actions, and related interlocutory applications for a summary judgment, a Mareva Injunction and a striking out action. Further, Saranya has experience in handling several matrimonial disputes, relating to contested/uncontested divorce, access applications and remedies for family violence.
During her volunteering experience with the Law Society Pro Bono Services, Saranya gained a more intimate perspective into how pervasive and intimidating the law can be in its interactions with members of the public. Saranya understands that legal disputes, regardless of their nature, can be both mentally exhausting and financially draining on the parties involved. This motivates Saranya to not only function as a bridge, that guides the client throughout the course of their matter, but also offer an all-encompassing perspective in ensuring the client’s best interests, when they may not be able to see to the same. Thus, Saranya adopts a well-rounded, compassionate and rigorous approach to serving her potential clients such that their best interests are steadfastly protected at all times.
