We’re particularly well-versed in some of the most common areas of business and commercial law, such as:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty: A fiduciary duty is one party’s obligation to act in the best financial interest of another party. When that obligation is forsaken, then a breach of fiduciary duty can occur.
