Real Estate Litigation

When you enter into a real estate transaction, legal duties arise for any and all parties involved in such a transaction. These duties arise from the areas of contract and tort law. When parties enter into real estate contracts, the parties are bound to act according to the terms of such contract and can be liable to the other parties of the transaction if they fail to hold up their end of the bargain. In addition to abiding by the terms of a real estate contract, certain individuals are required to abide by general statutory regulations including having the proper licensing and refraining from misrepresentations or fraud. If a situation arises where a party to a real estate transaction fails to abide by the terms of the agreement or some other statutory guideline, it is important to allow a seasoned attorney to step in and settle any dispute amicably.

Partnership, Trustee & Fiduciary Duty Litigation

A fiduciary duty arises between persons in certain situations, such as partners in a partnership or board members in a corporation. A breach of such a duty arises when a person owing a fiduciary duty neglects or fails to act according to the standard of care and diligence required under the circumstances. If a breach of this duty occurs, then the aggrieved party is given a legal cause of action to recover any damages he or she suffered as a result of the breach.
