Breaches of Fiduciary Duty
When communication between an estate's executor and the beneficiaries breaks down, so does trust. When a beneficiary believes a trustee or personal representative is withholding pertinent information, failing to properly administer the estate or negligently managing assets, the accused may be guilty of a breach of fiduciary duty. Some additional examples of fiduciary misconduct include:
- Failure to account for assets
- Making poor investments
- Acts of fraud
- Removing property from the estate
- Transferring estate assets to personal accounts (embezzlement)
- Failure to cooperate with beneficiaries
- Failure to carry out the instructions left in a will or trust
Both plaintiffs and defendants in these complex estate litigation cases can greatly benefit from strong legal representation from one of our experienced attorneys.
