Are you talking about when investing in a privately held company or a pubco and the ability for shareholders in a pubco to sue aggressively over nothing?

Assuming you mean a private company since this is in the PE sub-forum, at what level are you specifically wondering about? IE friends/family round in a new co. or a massive PE fund buying up lower middle market company?

Like friends/family round investing in a small company that chose to base in Singapore for said investor protection
