Our search for clarity often yields positive results.
Fraud and fiduciary duty disputes arise where there is a concern that an officer, director, trustee or representative has violated one of his or her duties relating to her title or position of authority. If that concern is not handled appropriately, and a lawsuit erupts, it can significantly interfere with the day-to-day operations of a business and potentially result in great financial loss.
At Anthony Ostlund, our experienced litigators represent clients on either side of fraud and fiduciary duty claims. We have literally “written the book” on these claims, serving as national authors since 2016 of the chapter on fiduciary duty claims in the Business and Commercial Litigation Treatise published by the ABA.
We understand that one mismanaged claim can lead to distress and severe consequences, so we take great care to handle these cases with the respect and attention they require.
Our lawyers have adeptly handled fraud and fiduciary claims in a variety of circumstances. These are just a few:
- After a month-long jury trial, a Hennepin County jury in Minneapolis awarded over $130 million to Anthony Ostlund’s client, PDG, P.A. in a contract, fraud, and fiduciary duty claim case.
- Recovered more than $73 million in arbitration in a fraud case in California involving alleged financial self-dealing by the developer of a large residential development complex.
- After an eight-day jury trial in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a unanimous jury awarded Anthony Ostlund’s client over $1.5 million, finding that the defendants had committed misrepresentation-by-omission.
