Becker & Poliakoff

Trust & Fiduciary

Trustees and other fiduciaries often face litigation by beneficiaries and others who allege breach of fiduciary duty. Becker represents corporate, institutional, and individual clients in disputes related to wills, trusts, estates, and fiduciary issues. We also have experience representing fiduciaries, including banks and trust companies in their trust disputes.

We have a comprehensive understanding of how fiduciary disputes emerge having represented clients in all types of trust and estate litigation, breaches of fiduciary duty, including improper asset management, self-dealing, conflicts of interest, improper administration and distributions, reformation of instruments, and removal of fiduciaries, contests on the grounds of undue influence, lack of capacity, fraud, duress, and forgery.
