Accounting by Executors, Trustees, Attorneys and Guardians
Executors, trustees, attorneys for property, and guardians of property are fiduciaries. They are obligated to act in the best interests of others. A fiduciary’s single most important obligation is to be transparent about their dealings when they are called on to account. Fiduciaries may also choose to pro-actively account to claim compensation or to protect themselves from liability.
We advise and represent all parties in accounting matters, including executors, trustees, attorneys, guardians, beneficiaries, and other stakeholders.
These are some of the services we provide and the kind of cases we handle:
- Preparation and review of executor, trustee, attorney, and guardian accounts
- Court applications by executors, trustees, attorneys and guardians to pass their accounts
- Objections to accounts by beneficiaries and others
- Claims by and against fiduciaries for breach of trust and breach of fiduciary duties
- Hearing and trial of contested court applications to pass accounts
- Disputes over the compensation of executors, trustees, attorneys and guardians
