Fiduciary relationships exist across an increasingly broad spectrum – not just the traditional context of trusts and estates planning and administration. Today, fiduciary duties are also owed by investment advisors, directors, officers, direction and consent advisors, agents, and personal representatives, as well as corporate trustees and ERISA/benefits plan managers, among others. Significantly, disputes based on alleged breach of fiduciary duty are on the rise and increasingly drawing the interest of both those who owe fiduciary obligations to others – and those to whom those duties are owed.
Composed of experienced trial counsel, Greenberg Traurig’s Fiduciary Litigation team designs sophisticated and creative strategies to address a broad range of complex fiduciary issues. We have an established record representing individuals, entities, and institutional clients on both sides of fiduciary relationships, which provides us with invaluable insight into how fiduciary disputes emerge and how to develop effective strategies for resolving them. Our attorneys also have the advantage of collaborating with GT’s deep network of colleagues when necessary across diverse practice areas.
Beyond being active trial attorneys, we are true counselors who understand the economic, reputational, and emotional toll litigation can take. Leveraging decades of on-the-ground experience earned in courtrooms across the country, GT’s Fiduciary Litigation team advises clients on best practices, compliance, and regulatory issues, litigation and dispute resolution strategies, risk management – and how to avoid litigation in the first place.
While litigation stemming from fiduciary responsibility is complex and nuanced, our approach is straightforward: we build a custom team for each case and formulate a strategic plan to meet client goals. With more than 30 offices nationwide, GT’s attorneys are where our clients are, part of the local fabric of the communities we serve.
