Breach of Fiduciary Duty

Breach of Fiduciary Duty

A fiduciary is a person or entity that has been entrusted with certain financial and/or ethical responsibilities on behalf of another party. While bankers, business advisors and accountants are all fiduciaries, so too are the executors of wills and the trustees of trusts who have been endowed with the duty to impartially carry out the terms of the will or trust. When fiduciaries fail to live up to their duties, beneficiaries can bring claims against these fiduciaries and seek damages for their losses.

At J R Phillips & Associates, our Denver breach of fiduciary duty lawyers are experienced at representing beneficiaries who believe that trustees, executors or other fiduciaries have failed to live up to their duties. We also represent fiduciaries who have been accused of breaching their duties and can help successfully resolve any dispute or claim alleging a breach of fiduciary duties.
