Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Fiduciary relationships are incredibly important to the success of a business. A fiduciary duty is basically a duty of loyalty, care, disclosure, or confidentiality that a person owes to another person or the business. Employees, executives, owners, and directors can all have fiduciary responsibilities to each other and/or the business. For instance, partners owe each other a duty of loyalty to each other and a duty to operate the business in good faith and fair dealing. Similarly, an employee may have a fiduciary duty of confidentiality under a non-compete agreement.
If there is a breach of fiduciary duty, significant damage can be caused to the business and other parties. Disputes involving allegations of a breach of fiduciary duty are often complex and emotionally intense given the personal and business relationship between the parties. As such, it is important to hire a business litigation attorney who understands these complex issues and will manage the case with integrity and discretion, while still fighting to protect your legal interests.

Breach of Covenant Not to Compete
Non-compete agreements are an essential part of any business as they seek to prevent an employee or fiduciary from taking customers or clients away from the business. But non-compete agreements are also one of the most common sources of business disputes, as well. At Charles T. Newland & Associates, our non-compete lawyers have considerable experience handling disputes about non-compete agreements, including breaches of confidentiality and issues regarding the scope of the agreement.
