A Betrayal Of Trust And Duty
When you have a business, you put a lot of faith in your partners and employees. When there is a breach of that trust, it can be costly for both your business and your professional relationships. The law of fiduciary relationships imposes a high duty of trust, loyalty, confidentiality and disclosure.
Our experienced breach of fiduciary duty lawyers know how to handle this complex area of the law. With a proven track record of success in breach of fiduciary duty claims, PMRK Law, LLP, can give you the support and practical legal guidance that you need.
You Can Trust Us
A fiduciary duty is a responsibility to act in someone else’s best interests. The fiduciary is often responsible for managing and protecting property for another person or business. For example, a board member has a fiduciary duty to the company’s shareholders.
When someone agrees to act as a fiduciary, they promise to act in the other party’s best interests. A breach happens when the fiduciary fails to act in the other party’s best interests or acts to serve their own interests. Most often, these breaches take place due to deception or negligence.
There are many ways someone can breach a fiduciary duty, including:
- Embezzlement or fraud
- Sharing employer’s trade secrets
- Failing to follow requests and carry out duties
- Improperly using or failing to account for employer funds
- Acting on behalf of a competitor
- Profiting at employer’s expense
After a breach, the fiduciary may be suspended or removed as a trustee or executor and may have to pay monetary damages, attorney fees and court costs. Our experienced attorneys at PMRK Law, LLP, can help determine what remedial measures may be available. You can trust us to handle your case with diligence and care.
