Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Texas Business Litigation Lawyer Serving Texas
Often, a party who acts for the benefit of another owes a fiduciary duty of care to that person or business. When this duty is breached, they may be held liable for any damages which result from their misconduct. Common examples of actions considered a breach of duty include:
- Negligent management, including imprudent investments
- Willful acts of fraud or other illegal acts
- Failures to carry out orders of a will or trust
- Removing property from an estate
Fiduciary litigation can involve individuals or entities that violate duties to act or provide advice and counsel for the benefit of another. These duties are recognized as the highest duty and level of trust imposed by the law and may involve trustees, lawyers, banks, trust departments, business partners, financial planners, accountants, and other types of professionals.
