The law of fiduciary duties has been described as "one of the most elusive concepts in Anglo American law." Demott, Beyond Metaphor: An Analysis of Fiduciary Obligation, 1988 Duke LJ 879, 908 (Nov. 1988). This title seeks to impose some clarity and structure on this area of law as it relates to California business entities. It provides up-to-date practical guidance on fiduciary duties in the context of general and limited partnerships, limited liability companies, and for-profit and nonprofit corporations as well as the fiduciary obligations of different types of individual professionals. It is intended to serve as an essential reference for business and commercial litigators seeking to initiate or defend breach of fiduciary duty claims and for business attorneys counseling clients who may be subject to fiduciary duties on how to comply with those duties and the protections from liability that may be available to them.
