Oakville Fiduciary Obligations Law Firm With More Than 50 Years of Experience
A fiduciary — trustee, power of attorney, executor or guardian — must solely act in the interests of the estate or grantor of the attorney for property or personal care. Any decisions outside of this rule are considered a breach of fiduciary duty and may be challenged by others.
At the law offices of Hull & Hull LLP, in Toronto and Oakville, we have established a reputation spanning more than 50 years for providing effective and dependable counsel to clients. Our lawyers work exclusively in estate and trust law, and they have a firm understanding of the rights, duties and responsibilities a fiduciary is given and expected to carry out.
Avoiding Fiduciary Disputes
Conflicts between a fiduciary and beneficiaries or other interested parties often occur because the fiduciary has been accused of not fulfilling his or her duties. Our lawyers work closely with clients to help ensure this does not happen. We provide counsel on a wide range of issues, including:
- Asset management
- Estate management
- Personal welfare management
- Health care decisions
- Estate and trust accounting
- Investment or disbursement of funds
In some instances, a beneficiary's grievances may be so severe as to warrant litigation or, in extreme cases, the removal of the fiduciary. At Hull & Hull LLP, we are widely respected as an estate litigation law firm due to our substantial courtroom experience handling these claims. We offer aggressive, yet practical, advice and counsel to beneficiaries seeking to challenge a fiduciary's actions as well as provide skilled defence to the fiduciary accused of negligence. Our understanding of both sides of the issues allows us to find creative and favourable solutions to these complex matters.
