Breach of Fiduciary Duty

A fiduciary relationship exists where a person is under a duty to act, or give advice, for the benefit of another person. A fiduciary relationship occurs where there is a relationship of trust and confidence between the parties. That is to say, where one party places its confidence in the other party and the other party accepts that trust.

A fiduciary relationship may be express, created by contract or statute, or implied based on the facts of the circumstances of the situation. Generally, a fiduciary relationship will arise where one party is dependent on the other party which in turn undertakes to protect and/or benefit the dependent party.
