Breach of Fiduciary Duty and Fraud

In business law, many breaches of fiduciary duty are the result of self-dealing, nondisclosure or fraud on behalf of officers, directors and majority shareholders. This fraud can take many forms and can result in significant financial damages for other business owners and minority shareholders. A breach of fiduciary duty can also occur where a board of directors or officer acts against the needs of the corporation. A person harmed by the breach of fiduciary duty may know it is taking place, but it takes an experienced eye to know what to look for to prove it.

When someone has a fiduciary duty, it implies a relationship based on trust. When that trust is broken you may be able to recover damages for your losses. If you suspect that something has occurred that may be a breach of fiduciary duty, it is important to contact a business fraud attorney or breach of fiduciary duty lawyer immediately. There is a two-year statute of limitations on a breach of fiduciary duty, and any delays may deprive you of the opportunity to recover your damages.
