October 15, 2015 Posted In Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Fiduciaries, including personal representatives and the executors of wills, are bound to act with a certain level of care and prudence when it comes to administering a will or an estate following a death.
Unfortunately fiduciaries may not always advance the interests of an estate over their own interests, potentially causing them to breach their fiduciary duties and incur some personal liability.
For beneficiaries, understanding how and when fiduciaries can breach their duties can be integral to knowing when to take action and hold these people accountable. To this end, below are some of the more common indications of breach of fiduciary duties.
