Breach of Fiduciary Duty, Professional Liability and Malpractice

Missouri law clearly states that officers, directors and professions have a fiduciary duty to protect their clients and their client's financial and corporate interests.  Professionals are required to maintain duties of loyalty and good faith to those they represent and serve.  

Professionals are placed in a position of trust and responsibility.  Professionals such as, insurance agents, brokers, security traders, pension administrators, trust administrators, engineers, lawyers and accountants are required to maintain professional standards set for their particular industry or profession.  The breach of such duties and responsibilities by professionals may result in those harmed to file claims of negligence, malpractice or breach of fiduciary duty. 

Types of Claims That We Handle

Corporate officers, stockbrokers, investment advisors, business partners and partnerships, trustees, brokers, shareholders, estate administrators and representatives, guardians, trustees, partners and lenders have a duty to ensure against inappropriate conduct detrimental to those in privity with them.  Such representatives cannot act against their client's best interest or use their particular knowledge and expertise to the detriment of those that they serve or represent.   Estate Trustees have a duty to ensure trust funds are maintained appropriately.

Lawyers potentially engage in legal malpractice if they have failed to meet deadlines in a case, failed to meet a filing deadline or statute of limitations, settled a case without client authorization, failed to take reasonable care to maintain appropriate contact with a client, failed to file the appropriate claims or did not take into account the best interests of a client.  The victims of this breach of fiduciary duty may suffer lost pursuit of their legal claims or lawsuit and monetary losses that would have likely been obtainable but for the negligence.    

It is sometimes difficult to determine whether a breach of fiduciary duty has occurred.  Attorney Kevin J. Dolley provides experienced and knowledgeable counsel in evaluating the merits and likelihood of success in breach of fiduciary duty litigation.
