Examples of a Breach of Fiduciary Duty
When businesses or professionals establish relationships involving special guidance or expertise with clients, leading the clients to rely on them for knowledgeable representation, they then have the responsibility to act in the clients’ best interests. When this responsibility is ignored, a breach of fiduciary duty may be said to have occurred. Breaches of fiduciary duty may include:
- Failure to handle investment assets in the manner chosen by the investor, or failing to conduct due diligence in researching investment opportunities
- Actions that benefit the company or a corporate director or officer to the detriment of the clients
- Misrepresentation, fraud and other deceptive business practices
