She next worked at Fitch Ratings Lanka Limited, the credit rating agency as the lead analyst of the structured finance ratings team and also functioned as the Company's General Counsel until she decided to venture on her own in mid 2002.

She considers integrity as her topmost virtue and this quality resulted in her being appointed the Company Secretary of Seylan Bank PLC when the Bank was in crisis in 2009 and the new Board of Directors was appointed by the Monetary Board. She has also been the Company Secretary of Transparency International Sri Lanka since its inception. Charuni is also the consultant to the Company Secretarial Department of Varners International (Pvt.) Ltd., Legal and Company Secretarial Divisions of the Upali Group of Companies and the Legal Consultant/Company Secretary of C T Land Development PLC.

Her expertise in the areas of corporate and commercial law and the work ethic of the firm resulted in a clientele of blue chip companies, other limited liability companies, non-governmental organizations and regional organizations, over a short period of time. A sister company by the name of C G Corporate Consultants (Pvt.) Ltd. (PV 60879) was floated in August 2007 to cope with the demand for Company Secretarial services.
