Houston Attorney for Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Dealing with a Violation of Fiduciary Responsibilities? Call Pete Patterson.
A fiduciary duty is created when a bond of trust is placed upon a person,
known as a fiduciary, to act in good faith regarding business matters
that involve operations, finances, property, and more. When this duty
is created, the fiduciary owes the strictest duty of care owed that is
mandated under the law. This includes exercising their loyalty, obedience,
care, and disclosure with respect to material information.
When the fiduciary either falls short of their legal obligations or purposely
take advantage of their position, they are considered to be in breach
of their duty, and are subject to legal recourse being taken against them.
In order to successfully win a breach of fiduciary duty case, the following
elements must be proven:
- A fiduciary relationship existed between the Plaintiff and Defendant
- The fiduciary breached their duty to the Plaintiff
- The breach of fiduciary duty caused injury to the Plaintiff or a benefit
to the Defendant
