Breach of Fiduciary Duty Attorneys
A breach of fiduciary duty occurs when an individual, partnership or corporation neglects or fails to act according to the standard of care and diligence required under the circumstances. The aggrieved party is given a legal cause of action to file a lawsuit to recover damages he or she has suffered.
In addition to a trust relationship, instances of breach of fiduciary duty may arise in relationships between lawyers and clients, between business partners, or between persons whose relationship is founded on mutual trust and confidence.
Our corporate law attorneys represent parties in actions involving breach of fiduciary duty. Our attorneys are highly skilled and experienced in pursuing claims against trustees or other parties who abused the trust and confidence placed in them by failing to act in good faith.
