Fiduciary Duty

Simply stated, a fiduciary duty is always, and unconditionally, acting in the best interest of your client or partner. 


A more detail definition of a “fiduciary duty” (from an Industry standpoint) would be: “A fiduciary duty is essentially an absolute, unwavering and unconditional ‘commitment or covenant of protection’ of a client’s or partner’s interests; above that of your own.  It includes a steadfast and diligent exercise of utmost care, good faith, integrity, honesty and loyalty.”


Violations of fiduciary duties owed are often cited as a cause of action in Complaints filed.  Despite the nature of the case and the disputes at issue, violations of fiduciary duties are often quoted in agent/broker cases, partnerships dispute cases and contract compliance cases.  Thus, a thorough working knowledge of fiduciary duties owed, and the role it plays in the Industry, is essential for any expert witness to be successful.
