Understanding Breach Of Fiduciary Duty

A breach of fiduciary duty occurs when an individual in a trusted position fails to act in the best interests of another party. When two or more people form a business partnership, each party owes the others a duty to act with reasonable prudence toward the business’s best interests, meaning doing what a reasonably prudent person would do in similar circumstances. Failure to do so is a breach of that duty, potentially exposing the breaching party to litigation from the other partners, who could sue for financial damage to the business or themselves personally.

Common scenarios include:

  • Self-dealing, or acting in one’s own best interests in a transaction instead of the business’s
  • Mismanaging assets
  • Failing to disclose a conflict of interest

The consequences of breaching fiduciary duty can be severe. They often include payment of financial damages, such as making restitution and performing other remedies to address the harm done to the affected party. In these situations, the role of a breach of fiduciary duty attorney is critical. An experienced fiduciary duty lawyer, Mr. Tong can assess the situation, develop a robust case and work toward a resolution that aligns with his clients’ best interests.
