Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Do you have reason to believe someone with a financial obligation to you is taking funds for personal use or squandering business assets? Is that person exploiting his or her authority in ways that damage your business?
Acts such as these may constitute a breach of fiduciary duty. They demand thorough investigation and, often, decisive legal action against a business partner, company board member or other powerful individual.
Experienced, Insightful Analysis of Your Concerns and All Legal Options
In general terms, a breach of fiduciary duty occurs when someone with a legal obligation to act in another's interest is negligent or willfully disregards that obligation. Examples range across the spectrum of business dealings, from those that ultimately result in fraud litigation or prosecution for embezzlement to complex disputes between business partners over alleged mismanagement of assets or unauthorized entry into contracts.
