Fiduciary Duty Breaches Lawyers

Fiduciary duty refers to the legal duty that each member of a certain type of business or professional relationship has to act in the best interests of the other member. In these types of relationships one party, the principal, seeks assistance or support from another, the fiduciary, regarding sensitive or secure financial or other professional information. Therefore, the fiduciary is forbidden to act in any way that is contrary to the principal’s interests. Unfortunately, sometimes a fiduciary fails to uphold his or her duties, either for personal gain or to favor another party’s interests.
