Under California law, a trustee owes specific fiduciary duties to the trust beneficiaries, including the duty of loyalty. A trustee also has the duty to act reasonably and prudently in administration of the trust. Any breach of duty by a trustee can provide the basis for trustee litigation. Potential misconduct encompasses a broad range of issues, including self-dealing, fraud, failure to remain impartial, improper accounting or investment, failure to provide documentation and reports, and more.
