Breach Of Fiduciary Duty
Business leaders are naturally held to higher standards. When it comes to commercial matters, those who serve as CEOs, partners, board members or in an executive role must put the company’s needs before their own. Those who do not can and should be held accountable for their breach of fiduciary duty.
As a boutique commercial litigation firm with more than 30 years of combined experience, Nowak & Stauch, PLLC, has the requisite experience to handle breach of fiduciary claims. We understand the significant impact such complex claims can have on a company — not just on its profits but also on its reputation and long-term viability. Therefore, we work toward resolutions that minimize the immediate and long-term impact a breach of fiduciary trust can create.
Qualified Guidance When Trust Has Been Violated
We represent corporate executives and business entities through the Dallas-Forth Worth Metroplex and across North Texas whose trust has been violated by the negligent or fraudulent actions of a trusted partner, associate or colleague. Our experience includes handling claims arising from:
- Conflicts of interest
- Theft, fraud or self-dealing
- Failure to fully disclose financial dealings
- General incompetence or malpractice
Our attorneys will thorough examine the vehicles governing the alleged offender’s conduct in efforts to seek an appropriate remedy. This could include partnership or shareholder agreements, corporate bylaws, operating agreements or other binding contracts.
Remedies will vary based on the specific nature of the infraction, but could include seeking restitution, terminating contracts or partnerships, or even bringing criminal charges in the case of fraud or corporate theft. As experienced litigators, our lawyers will seek the most appropriate resolution that maximizes our clients’ interests and minimizes future liability for the company.
