to lose somebody something

Hi, everyone!

Could you answer these questions:

  1. Does this mean that she lost some company’s money?

  2. Could I say “I lost him a lot of money”

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

The idea is that she lost money on the company’s behalf: she lost [for] the company some money . She was entrusted with the company’s funds for e.g. investment, and made poor investments. You could say that you ‘lost him a lot of money’ if, for instance, he trusted you with deciding his gambling bets and you lost the bets.
