What is breach of fiduciary duty?

In Nevada, boards of directors, lawyers, and other people or groups are often given the responsibility to act on behalf of another person, business or organization. When this includes the care of funds or property, these responsibilities are generally known as fiduciary duties. The people, or group, who is given fiduciary duties, are often referred to as fiduciaries, and those they represent are known as principals. Fiduciaries are typically expected to act on behalf of, and in the best interests of, their principal.
