Breach of Fiduciary Responsibility

Fiduciary Duty

A fiduciary duty arises when there is a legal or ethical relationship between two or more people. It is the highest legal and equitable standard of care. The fiduciary must always act in the sole interest and for the benefit of the one who trusts. I have represented personal representatives, trustees and beneficiaries; agents, brokers and principals; partners; shareholders, directors and officers; doctors, and others involved in fiduciary relationships, which arise in a variety of situations, and are legally enforceable.

Breach of Fiduciary Obligations

Breach of a fiduciary duty spawns litigation. If the fiduciary has absconded with property, or invested it, an injunction or constructive trust can be entered by a court to seize and return it to the owner. The fiduciary can be held accountable for all money damages and losses which result from the breach.
