What is a Fiduciary Duty?
Fiduciary duty can involve a combination of factors, though it usually involves the holding of money in good faith.
It can also include a combination of:
- Duty of loyalty
- Duty of honesty
- Duty of fairness
- Duty of care
- Duty to act in good faith
In a partnership or business, fiduciary duty requires those involved to disclose any relevant and necessary information to any other partners within the scope of the relationship and to avoid all conflicts of interest.
Breaching Fiduciary Duty
Breaching fiduciary duty is essentially a break in trust between partners who owed a duty to each other.
Below are some common examples of breach of fiduciary duty:
- A business partner took a business opportunity from the company.
- A business partner partook in insider trading.
- A board of directors acted on behalf of their own financial gain and against the interests of the company.
- A partner kept profits that belonged to the company.
- Misrepresentation or concealment of relevant information from the partnership, resulting in financial damages.
- Negligent management.
When filing a claim for breach of fiduciary duty, you will have to prove that such a relationship existed, that it was breached, and that the breach of this duty warrants a remedy.
