In Conversation with Baroness Butler-Sloss

Clifford Chance's global gender parity group Accelerate>>> is delighted to host an In Conversation event with The Rt Hon Baroness Butler-Sloss GBE. 

Baroness Butler-Sloss was the first female judge of the Court of Appeal and the first female President of the Family Division of the High Court of Justice. During a distinguished judicial career spanning 35 years, she was involved in a number of high-profile and controversial cases; she was the Deputy Coroner on the first part of the inquests into the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales, and Dodi Fayed.

She will share stories of her unique career which includes her current roles as co-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Modern Day Slavery and Human Trafficking, a Trustee of the Human Trafficking Foundation, and a member of the Anti-Slavery Commissioner's Advisory Panel, as well as her perspective as a trailblazing woman who was called to the Bar in 1955 and went on to become the highest-ranking female judge in the UK between 1999 and 2005.

Leveraged finance litigation – aggressive covenants, interpretations and consequences

In the last several years covenants in leveraged finance have created increasing flexibility and a number of issuers have taken full advantage or adopted aggressive contractual interpretations. Investors have pushed back; in some circumstances they have litigated where they believe that an issuer has gone too far. We will review some of the most recent disputes and litigation, such as Windstream and J Crew, and consider their impact in the leveraged finance market.
