What Is a Fiduciary Duty?
Fiduciary duty is the legal obligation that one party has to act in the
best interest of another party. The party that owes the duty is known
as the fiduciary, while the party the duty is owed to is called the principal
or the beneficiary. Fiduciaries must act on the principals’ behalf
and can’t benefit from the arrangement unless the principal gives consent.
Fiduciary duty applies to professionals who provide services or gives advice,
like accountants, real estate brokers, and lawyers, as well as members
of a limited partnership, corporation, directors, and shareholders. Professionals
who fail to act in the best interests of their clients or consumers can
be sued for breaching their fiduciary duty.
