Breach of fiduciary duty

There are certain relationships that trigger a fiduciary duty between one person and another. This fiduciary duty, who typically occupies a position of trust or power, involves a heightened duty of care towards those people who the fiduciary serves.

Typical examples of those fiduciary relationships are:

  • Realtor - client;
  • Trustee - beneficiary
  • Partners;
  • Attorney-client; and
  • The holder of a power of attorney.

These relationships oftengive rise to improper conduct such as self-dealing, disloyalty, embezzlement, and other types of misconduct. We have litigated many cases involving breach of fiduciary duty and we stand ready to advise you on how to best handle your matter.

Often these cases require experts to opine about the proper standard of care that should have been employed by the fiduciary. A breach of fiduciary duty also arises commonly where a person has been giving certain powers under a power of attorney, the principal or the principles family may become suspicious or outright indignant about the manner in which the power holder is handling the affairs of the principal. Self-dealing transactions are scrutinized and litigation follows.
