Breach of Fiduciary Duties

Fiduciary duties are created when a legal relationship between two or more parties is formed. The fiduciary is the party entrusted with protecting specified assets, i.e. money or property. It is this individual that is required to act in good faith and operate without acquiring personal gain.
