Claims of Trustee Malfeasance and Misconduct
Trusts are designed to provide peace of mind and to ensure that our loved ones are taken care of after we are gone. Unfortunately, trusts are not immune from mismanagement and abuse. When trustees violate their authority or fail to live up to their fiduciary obligations, beneficiaries suffer.Common allegations include:
- Claims of inadequate or irregular distributions of funds;
- Mismanagement of trust assets on the part of the trustee;
- Illegal disposal of trust assets;
- Diversion of assets to the trustee;
- Undue influence;
- Conflicts of interest in the management of the trust.
How We Can Help
Our extensive knowledge of the intricacies of both law and accounting gives us an advantage other firms can’t match.We know what can go wrong in a trust, and when it does, how to investigate and pursue trust contest cases. In the event that a trust has been mismanaged or the trustees have not upheld their duties, we can help remedy the situation depending on the nature of the wrongs that the trustee has committed as well as the goals of the beneficiary. We can seek to obtain a full and objective accounting of the trust’s activities, compel distribution of trust funds in accordance with the provisions of the trust and/or remove one or more trustees. In cases where the information we gather exposes fraud, deceit, and wrongdoing, we help our clients receive the compensation they deserve.
