LOL: Lady de Rothschild sues think-tank over funds from ‘caring capitalism’ summit

So much for 'caring capitalsm'. I am not making this up.

A London summit on “caring capitalism” that attracted Prince Charles and Bill Clinton as speakers is now embroiled in a bitter legal dispute.

Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild says the think-thank that staged the event turns out to be not very caring. And she is suing for breach of trust and fiduciary duty.  In a court claim, she says the one-day conference was her idea and that the Henry Jackson Society acted only as “secretariat” and “agents” for the May 27 Conference and that  she raised all the funds.

Lady de Rothschild,who is married to billionaire Sir Evelyn de Rothschil, claims HJS, a UK registered charity, and its executive director Alan Mendoza are holding £137,000 of “surplus funds” from the conference that should be returned to the couple’s investment company EL Rothschild.

A further £44,000 of invoices connected with the conference are outstanding because “HJS refuses to pay”, says her legal claim, which also refers to another £6,000 in unspecified bills.

It also says HJS must give her control of websites connected with the conference and other assets such as a contacts database which she says “does not belong to” HJS.


  1. "Lady de Rothschild,who is married to billionaire Sir Evelyn de Rothschild..."

    Don't you mean "trillionaire"?

  2. I don't know what's more funny, that someone thought they could screw a Rothschild or that there's a dude named "Evelyn".

  3. Perhaps the hawks at the Scoop Jackson (D-Boeing) club didn't bow and scrape enough for her ladyships liking
