Breach of fiduciary duty
In business, a fiduciary relationship occurs when one party has a legal responsibility to another to act for the other party’s benefit. A fiduciary duty can arise by implication or by contract. For example, a board of directors of a corporation has fiduciary duties to the shareholders of the company. A stockbroker has fiduciary duties to invest a client’s money wisely. When a company or individual with a fiduciary duty fails to perform in accordance with expectations, those negatively impacted can sue for breach of fiduciary duty. Riverside County corporate attorneys, Schlecht, Shevlin & Shoenberger litigate breach of fiduciary duty cases throughout California. Their lawsuits may also include counts ancillary to breach of fiduciary, like fraud and accounting.
Personal liability lawsuits
Officers, boards of directors, managing members, limited partners and key personnel in businesses enjoy protection from personal liability for acts of the business entity if the business entity is formed correctly and the individuals follow the “rules” that keep the protective shield intact. Nevertheless, lawsuits frequently occur when injured parties want to pierce that shield and hold the individuals responsible. This is particularly true if the business entity has few assets and the injured party is seeking monetary damages. Schlecht, Shevlin & Shoenberger represents individuals and businesses in California in these types of corporate law cases.
