KLG Breach of Fiduciary Duty Attorneys

Fiduciary duty is in effect when one individual owes a specific legal obligation to another party. This requires the financial welfare of the receiving party to be taken into full consideration when the duty is being fulfilled. Individuals who are delinquent in their duties' performance may be subjected to severe legal repercussions. The provision of legal aid or financial management is an integral part of several public policies. When you take on the role of a fiduciary, you take on a significant amount of responsibilities, one of which is to guarantee that you never make a profit by taking activities that have a detrimental impact on the financial condition of another party. There is always a large amount of gray area when determining if foul play was actually involved in these situations or not. Fortunately, our Breach of Fiduciary Duty Attorneys have the requisite expertise to deal with these complex determinations and to offer successful solutions.

What Is Fiduciary Duty?

Business Meeting

In a Fiduciary duty, one party has a legal responsibility to another to use their expert knowledge to act in such a way that the other party gets the benefits of their finances and law to the full extent. Fiduciaries fulfill their responsibilities on behalf of the other party and do not earn any profits unless the other party consents to this form of agreement to ensure no conflict of interest arises. This responsibility is often carried out by knowledgeable professionals, such as:

➢ Real estate brokers

➢ Lawyers

➢ Accounts

Special Fiduciary Duties for Corporation Directors

Modern Building

Given their high level of knowledge, directors of corporations are responsible for a unique set of fiduciary duties, including the duty of loyalty and the duty of care.

Duty of Loyalty: There must be no indication of personal financial gain that influences or dissuades corporate directors from making certain decisions on behalf of their principal.

Duty of Care: The board of directors must conduct all of the extensive background research required to make accurate and adequate decisions for the business interests of their principal. The interests of individual shareholders and the entire corporation may be at stake if the directors do not fulfill their fiduciary duties.

Although the actual breach of fiduciary duty itself is not a criminal offense, but it can emerge if someone takes part in criminal activities.

The damages caused by a breach can encompass both current and future losses. During the court case, regardless of which side you're on, your KLG's Breach of Fiduciary Duty Attorney will be there with you while the judge or jury determines where the responsibilities lie.

➢ Damages: Numerous cases end with the plaintiff being awarded the financial compensation necessary to rectify the damages. This compensation includes both monetary awards as well as punitive actions taken against the offender.

 

➢ Equitable Remedies: These are granted by the court to ensure that parties know when they can either act or refrain from acting if the original legal remedies aren't set in place and are insufficient in resolving their issues. This category includes injunctions, court-appointed receiverships, and numerous other unique legal circumstances.
