I worked on a failed and then reworked REIT acquisition that involved a write down from 12 million to 8 million. No one will talk about it but I think the write down was because the structure that was abadoned was originally recommended by a partner at my firm but we later had to abandon it based on advice from accountants and lawyers at other firms.

Almost $4M, and yeah, it actually wasn’t the fault of the partner involved but they definitely got pushed out.
