Understanding Breach of Fiduciary Duty Claims

A fiduciary duty breach is not acting in the best interest of another party. Executors, Trustees, and Powers of Attorney must act honorably and in accordance with the law.  A beneficiary or other interested party can bring an action against a fiduciary if there is a question about whether that fiduciary has acted appropriately. 

The laws governing the acts of fiduciaries are very complex.  Our trusts and estates departments in North Carolina and New York have represented many clients both in their capacity as a fiduciary and as a beneficiary where the acts of the fiduciary are in question.  Having quality counsel in these types of contentious litigated matters is essential to avoid the many traps for the unwary including the potential to be surcharged for the legal fees incurred by the opposing party.
