Fiduciary duties arise in certain kinds of business relationships, such as the relationships financial advisors, trust administrators, boards of directors, and key employees have with the individuals or companies they represent. Fiduciaries owe a duty to exercise loyalty and the utmost good faith towards the party they represent. When a fiduciary breaches his duties, it can cause significant harm to the represented party, whether it is money damages, damage to a business’ reputation, loss of business, or other damages flowing from the fiduciary’s breach of duties. Oliver Maner’s attorneys have achieved favorable results for clients who have brought breach of duty claims against fiduciaries, as well as for fiduciaries who are wrongly accused of breaching their duties.
