Robinson Bradshaw has extensive experience asserting and defending fiduciary claims. We represent trustees, executors, beneficiaries and others in fiduciary relationships and also advise trustees and money managers prior to litigation in an effort to reduce the likelihood of a lawsuit.
When litigation is necessary, we seek the best possible resolution as quickly as we can. We recognize the emotion that often is involved in disputes regarding fiduciaries, particularly with estates or trusts involving several family members. Our extensive experience allows us to provide objective advice so that our clients can swiftly achieve their goals.
