Resolving allegations of a breach of fiduciary duty in San Diego requires legal skill, experience and successful strategies. The violation of a fiduciary duty is a serious offense as those who hold a fiduciary duty have a responsibility to act in your best interests and not to take advantage of your situation or take relevant actions without your knowledge or consent.
A fiduciary duty may be imposed by an agreement or by the law. The breach of a fiduciary duty can occur between corporate officers and directors and their corporation and shareholders, in a joint venture or even between a husband and wife. Partners have a fiduciary duty to one another just like agents do for their clients. In a business setting, most allegations of a breach of fiduciary duty arise out of stolen or lost money or a breach of reasonable care, confidentiality or loyalty.
