Experienced Representation In Disputes Involving Executors, Attorneys, Guardians And Fiduciaries

Executors, attorneys, trustees and guardians are placed in a position of trust and confidence; they are accordingly held to a high standard, known as fiduciary duty. Sometimes they fail to meet that standard or need to be defended against an accusation of breach of trust.

For over two decades, McLellan Herbert, Barristers & Solicitors has provided skilled, efficient representation for parties engaged in fiduciary disputes throughout the Vancouver area, the North Shore, the Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley.

Understanding The Demands On A Fiduciary

Often, executors, trustees and other fiduciaries are lay people who need education and help to discharge their duties. McLellan Herbert has the experience and the knowledge to provide that help.

Conversely, a beneficiary or other claimant may wish to pursue a claim against a fiduciary. Examples of claims include:

  • Negligence
  • Delay
  • Mismanagement
  • Waste of estate assets
  • Failure to act in the interest of the beneficiaries
  • Bad investment choices

Fee disputes between fiduciaries and claimants are also common. Theft and fraud on the part of a fiduciary are not common, but they do occur.
