Fiduciaries in Business

Many executives and business owners have heightened duties to their business and to the other owners, including:

  • Board members or directors of corporations
  • Shareholders of closely held companies
  • Business partners
  • Members in a limited liability company

These business people have a fiduciary duty to act in utmost good faith. Fraud, self dealing, negligence and conflicts of interest are just a few of the many ways a fiduciary can breach this duty. If a fiduciary has breached their duty to you or to your company, you need an experienced business law attorney to represent your interests.

Our business law attorneys have the skills and knowledge you need, whether you are a small, closely-held business, a non-profit or other type of business entity. We will identify mismanagement and work to hold those individuals or entities responsible.

Unfair Trade Practices - Consumer Protect Act

Not only do middle management, business owners and corporate officers owe a duty to each other and their business, they also have obligations to their customers. Consumers and customers are protected from unfair and deceptive trade practices under the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act.

Under this law, consumers and customers may be able to bring a claim, known as a 93A action, against your company or business. This action can be brought by an individual or owners of the business and a successful claim can result in punitive damages and an award of attorneys' fees. Our firm has experience handling 93A actions and we can help you with your unfair trade practice matter.
