Fiduciary Duty and Trustee Litigation

A fiduciary duty is one of the highest legal duties provided by common law, and sometimes, provided by contract. Fiduciary duties might arise out of partnerships, trusts, employment, escrow agreements, powers of attorney, corporate officer positions, discretionary brokerage accounts, mineral rights, and even informal relationships based upon trust and confidence. Wynne and Wynne has extensive experience with fiduciary duty litigation claims. Its lawyers have broadly researched, strategically developed, successfully argued, and tried numerous fiduciary duty claims. These claims typically involve requests for actual and exemplary damages. In some instances, such as management of trust property, claimants may be entitled to punitive damages unencumbered by any statutory caps. If an institution or individual breached a fiduciary duty owed to you or your company, or if someone has filed a breach of fiduciary duty claim against you, contact our Houston Texas breach of fiduciary duty lawyers for a complimentary consultation.
