Elizabeth Carson

Spear’s Review

Dual-qualified in England and New York, Elizabeth Carson drives Penningtons Manches Cooper’s US-focused offering, which has become an integral part of the firm’s private wealth group. The department is currently the only major London family department with a dedicated US desk. 

Carson herself receives a constant stream of referrals from leading family firms located in major US cities – in particular Washington DC, Los Angeles and New York. A French, Portuguese and Spanish speaker, she also has strong links across African jurisdictions and frequently accepts referrals from the continent. Notable cases include Waggott v Waggott, in which the Court of Appeal established that a person’s earning capacity is not a capital asset to be shared with their spouse. 

Adviser Profile

Elizabeth, the ‘go-to’ lawyer for cases with a US connection, focuses on the needs of HNW individuals and their families. She prides herself on finding a solution to even the most complex and challenging of issues, achieving a fair settlement whenever possible.  

Elizabeth is ‘incredibly kind, empathetic and calm even when under pressure,’ recognising the trauma that can be caused when relationships break down. She considers it essential that her clients have the right support around them and always ensures that this is in place.

Elizabeth was admitted as a fellow of the prestigious International Academy of Family Lawyers in 2021 and has a thriving international practice. Her work covers all aspects of family law.
