Counsel For Issues Involving Estates & Business Matters
A fiduciary duty calls for a duty to act in good faith and with a duty of loyalty. While fiduciaries often have discretionary power over the interests of others, those that owe a fiduciary duty are also expected to act in the best interests of the people whose assets and property have been put in their charge. It is often the case that executors of estates, trustees, and corporate officers owe such a duty.
