Breach of Fiduciary Duty
LAWYERS FOR BREACH OF FIDUCIARY DUTY SERVING OAKVILLE, MILTON, GEORGETOWN AND THROUGHOUT SOUTHERN ONTARIO
Fiduciaries have a duty to act with honesty and loyalty. In the context of trusts and estates, fiduciaries include trustees, executors/estate trustees, attorneys under power of attorney, guardians for property and personal representatives. Each of these individuals owes a duty to the estate, the incapable person or the beneficiaries. When a fiduciary fails in this duty, he or she can be held accountable through a breach of fiduciary duty action.
