What Is a Breach of Fiduciary Duty?

If you have an established relationship as someone’s fiduciary, it is your responsibility to act in good faith in their best interests. Any failure to do so could be regarded as a breach of your fiduciary duty.

A breach of fiduciary duty could include:

  • Actions are taken not in the party’s best interest
  • Actions are taken in the fiduciary’s own self-interest
  • A failure to disclose information such as a conflict of interests
  • Misappropriation of funds
  • Abuse of power or misuse of influence

Fiduciary breaches are often documented in closely held corporations, where a corporate board member breaches its duty to shareholders. They can also occur between contractual parties, attorneys and clients, trustees and beneficiaries, and principals and agents.
