Breach Of Fiduciary Duty
Commercial litigation attorney Thomas Howard regularly handles business disputes involving claims of breach of fiduciary duty. Breach of fiduciary duty claims involve parties that owe a duty of trust to another and act in violation of the same. Such cases frequently arise in matters involving business partners, principals and agents, or businesses and their officers.
As an example, attorney Howard filed claims alleging breach of fiduciary duty, as well as breach of contract, civil theft, and several additional counts, against an officer of an accounting company that took covert and self-serving actions to the detriment of his partners. The court issued a permanent injunction on the behalf of attorney Howard’s client shortly after the filing of the complaint, and the matter successfully settled shortly thereafter.
