When you seek the assistance of an attorney, financial advisor, or if you own interest in a business, you expect that your best interests will be protected. A breach of duty can occur in a variety of contexts. Attorneys and other professionals, as well as board members, owe their clients and businesses certain duties and obligations. At the Law Offices of Kenneth E. Chase, P.C., our Scottsdale breach of duty lawyer is experienced in handling cases arising out of professional negligence or business fraud.
A breach of duty is a serious offense that can cause severe financial harm. We are experienced in pursuing actions against the attorney-trustees, professionals, and board members in breach of their duties.
A breach of duty can occur when an attorney or other professional, such as a CPA or financial advisor, acts or performs in violation of their professional duties to their clients. It also can arise in a business setting if a director, officer, or employee breaches their duty of loyalty to the company by taking a corporate or business opportunity for their own benefit. Please contact our Scottsdale breach of duty lawyer for more information.
We are experienced in handling the following cases:
We have successfully prosecuted and defended claims for a breach of duty, breach of loyalty, and a breach of fiduciary duty. A CPA may be in breach for providing tax advice that leads to penalties for the client. If you are an officer, director, or shareholder and are looking to investigate and pursue a claim on behalf of your corporation, please contact Kenneth Chase regarding your claim.
Our legal malpractice attorney has 40 years of experience and has prosecuted claims on behalf of individuals affected by negligent lawyers. If your attorney breached a duty by failing to pursue a claim or by misusing, commingling or stealing funds, we will actively pursue a lawsuit on your behalf. Send us an email or call (480) 423-5800 to see how we can assist with your claim.
