Breach of Fiduciary Duties Litigation

A fiduciary is a person or entity in which one places a vast amount of trust in handling one’s assets and/or interest. Thus, when a fiduciary acts against the interests of the principal or for their own profit without the express consent of the principal, it may be met with serious litigious consequences.

For example, if an officer of a company, fails to act in the company’s best financial interests, even if their actions were not explicitly illegal, you may have cause to pursue a lawsuit for Breach of Fiduciary Duty. 

Here are some additional examples of where a fiduciary relationship can arise from:

  • An officer or director of a corporation has fiduciary duties to the company’s shareholders;
  • A majority owner of a company can have fiduciary duties to the minority owners;
  • Business partners have fiduciary duties to each other;
  • A manager of a limited liability company can have fiduciary duties to the LLC’s members;
  • An agent can have a fiduciary duty to its principal;
  • A stockbroker or investment adviser can have a fiduciary duty to a client-investor;
  • An executor or personal representative of an estate has fiduciary duties to the decedent’s heirs.

Defense of a breach of fiduciary duty claim requires an attorney which is experienced in complex business and employment legal matters and litigation and preferably an attorney who understands the nature of business.  Here at the Campbell Law Group, we have experience in defending companies against a breach of fiduciary duty claim.

Our firm accepts cases from all over South Florida such as Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, South Miami, Pinecrest, Brickell, Edgewater, Doral and Wynwood, as well as cases in Broward and Palm Beach County, Tampa, Orlando and the rest of Florida.
