PARIS – France – Two wings of the Rothschilds are embroiled in a legal battle over the rights to use their prestigious name.
According to reports coming from Paris, the Rothschilds are having a little tiff.
They’re part of the same family, with the same name but different strands of the family and all the historical shenanigans that go with that.
Let’s simplify this, finance house Edmond de Rothschild Group is threatening legal action against Rothschild and Co over the use of the Rothschild family name. Benjamin de Rothschild and Ariane de Rothschild who are higher up in the ranking than David de Rothschild do not want a name change of Paris-Orleans to Rothschild and Co. which, if one looks at it, seems to supersede the Edmond de Rothschild Group purely by utilising an all encompassing name.
One lawyer on the scene was quoted as saying: “Frankly I don’t give a damn, as long as they pay me, why should I give a shit. I’m rolling in it here. Wahoo!”
Christmas has obviously come early for some.
