A fiduciary is a person or entity that is charged with the responsibility to act in the best interests of the principal. For example, attorneys, trustees, directors and officers of a corporation, stockbrokers, real estate agents, real estate brokers, and business partners, among others, have a fiduciary relationship with their clients or their principals. The fiduciary relationship creates a duty to act with the utmost good faith in the best interests of the fiduciary’s client, principal, company, or partner. If the fiduciary does not comply with its legal duty and obligations, the fiduciary can be held accountable for the harm caused.
