Family office

A family office provides multi-generational financial planning services, and selects and oversees ancillary professionals such as estate planning attorneys, CPAs and business valuation specialists. When the founder of a successful business dies unexpectedly, the office tasks a valuation specialist to value the business for sale. The family later determines that the valuation was low, and they sue the valuation specialist, and the family office for vicarious liability.

Venture capital

A technology startup raised its initial round of funding from three angel investors who each invested $1 million and were each granted 10% of the company. The company grew rapidly, and another financing round was floated. This time, the company accepted an offer from a well-known investor of $1 million for a 20% stake. The original investors sued the start up for diluting their investment by half.
