Ohio Breach of Fiduciary Duty Attorney
Cleveland Partnership Dispute Lawyers
Certain relationships –business partnerships, relationships between shareholders in closely held corporations, relationships between members of professional associations, the relationship between an investor and an investment advisor, and others – hold members to a fiduciary duty standard, meaning they owe a duty to act in good faith and with loyalty, toward the partner, shareholder, or client. If you have suffered a serious loss as a result of a breach of trust in a fiduciary relationship, you may not be in a position to hire an attorney under traditional fee arrangements. At our Cleveland, Ohio, litigation firm, Garson Johnson LLC, it is our position that every client deserves sophisticated and aggressive representation.

Protect Your Investments from Breach of Contract
Under Ohio law, majority owners are not entitled to favor themselves at the expense of other owners. When one owner enjoys benefits not shared by the others, it may constitute a breach of fiduciary duty. Our lawyers represent minority shareholders and partners in actions to protect their investments and enjoy all the benefits of ownership. Breach of fiduciary duty may also involve an officer or partner allowing breach of contract by a third party. At its most extreme, breach of fiduciary duty may involve a criminal act, such as theft or embezzlement on the part of a shareholder or partner. A claim of breach of fiduciary duty can also be brought against a stockbroker or investment advisor or other such parties managing property on behalf of a client. Our Cleveland, Ohio, lawyers handle arbitration and litigation.
