Lois Langton

Spear’s Review

Lois Langton, partner and head of family law at Howard Kennedy, has particular expertise in dealing with complex financial remedy work involving multi-million-pound matrimonial settlements. She also has specialisms in tax, trusts, off-shore matters, corporate structures and pre- and post-nuptial agreements. Seventy-five per cent of Langton’s cases involve an international element.

Langton also regularly deals with breaches of confidence and privacy, including the wrongful removal of a spouse’s confidential information, and the associated reputation management work that is required to address those issues.

She is well connected in the sports world and is a member of Women in Football. The interest spills into her professional life, where she jointly heads the firm’s sport sector team and acts for a number of individuals associated with the sports and entertainment industry.
