A fiduciary has a legal or ethical relationship of trust. The fiduciary duty is a high standard of care and requires a level of loyalty. A fiduciary relationship is created depending upon the type of relationship and the circumstances of that relationship.
We represent plaintiffs and defendants in breach of fiduciary duty litigation in federal and state courts. This litigation typically arises when there are allegations that a person, often a professional, breaches his/her duty to others. It takes business acumen and litigation experience to analyze complex business disputes.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty Claims
Texas law recognizes that fiduciary duties can arise in many contexts, including principal/agent, employer/employee, partnerships, and business associates. Breach of fiduciary duty litigation commonly includes claims for fraud and other business torts too. These can be serious allegations and should be addressed quickly.
Breach of Fiduciary Lawsuit
Because trust is important in any relationship, breaches of fiduciary duty are serious allegations. Litigation often moves quickly and may include requests for immediate relief, such as temporary restraining orders, temporary or preliminary injunctions, expedited discovery, and other pre-judgment remedies.
