A fiduciary duty is one of the highest legal duties provided by common law, and sometimes, provided by the 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.
