Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Whenever one party places trust and confidence in a second person with that second person’s knowledge, it is possible that a fiduciary relationship is created. Such a relationship imposes on the fiduciary the duty to act in the best interest of the person who has placed his or her trust and confidence in the fiduciary. As a result, the fiduciary may not simply deal with that party at arm’s length, guided only by the morals of the marketplace. Fiduciaries may not profit from their relationship with the person who has placed his or her trust and confidence in the fiduciary without the express informed consent. Fiduciary also has a duty to avoid any conflicts of interest between themselves and the person who has placed his or her trust and confidence in the fiduciary. A fiduciary duty is the strictest duty of care recognized by the US legal system.
