Top fiduciary lawyers in Raleigh N.C. Miller Law Group has over 50 years of combined experience representing victims who have been financially injured as a result of a breach of fiduciary duty.
A “fiduciary” is an individual in a position of trust. Some common fiduciary relationships include: trustee/beneficiary, principle/agent, agent/client, attorney/client, and doctor/patient. Officers, directors and majority shareholders of business often owe a fiduciary duty to the business or shareholders.
In business cases involving a breach of fiduciary duty a company or an individual is often financially damaged in a variety of ways, including:
- Loss of business opportunity
- Conflicts of interests
Claims for breach of fiduciary duty in business cases can be brought directly against the individual, but sometimes the claim must be initiated by the company. Minority owners of a company can bring shareholder derivative claims if the wrongdoer is the majority owner of the company.
