Profile

Elizabeth Carson

Description

Dual qualified in England and Wales 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 across the major US cities – in particular, Washington DC, Los Angeles and New York. A French, Portuguese and Spanish speaker, she also has strong links across Afircan jurisdictions, and frequently accepts referrals from the continent. Notable recent 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.
