If you believe a fiduciary has committed misconduct, a case can be built and brought against them.

If you suspect fiduciary misconduct, it is crucial to act quickly to correct the problem, or the fiduciary could continue their problematic behavior and cause irreversible financial harm. Likewise, if you are a fiduciary who has been wrongfully accused of misconduct, it is important to retain counsel promptly to assist in your defense before the court issues any rulings adverse to your interests.
