Know your options after a breach of fiduciary duty

When you work with professionals, you expect to receive competent service from someone who adheres to all reasonable standards for the field. Whether it's a real estate agent whom you asked to help secure a new office location for your business or an investment professional entrusted with the retirement funds of your staff, you need to know that the professional has your best interests in mind.

Indicators of possible legal malpractice

It's frustrating to think that an attorney your company pays for representation would act in a way that does not serve the firm's best interests. Unfortunately, it happens. Businesses in California and across the country face this kind of risk every day. Violations of trust can occur in any number of ways – overbilling for services, a conflict of interest, or breach of fiduciary duty.

Common legal malpractice cases

Attorneys should be held to the highest possible standard in every case they work. With large sums of money on the line, from high-stake business interests to multi-million dollar settlements, your lawyer needs to serve your best interest.
