Steve Malach successfully resolved a hotly contested multi-million-dollar trust management case in a Michigan probate court. The trust included titles to various mobile home parks and related investments located in various states.
The lawsuit was based on allegations of breach of fiduciary duty, self-dealing and conflict of interest against the acting trustee. The case also involved the attempt to invoke the “in Terrorem” clause of the trust (this is a clause used to disinherit anyone that challenges the legality of a will or trust.)
In the end, this case was satisfactorily resolved with the client receiving a significant confidential settlement.
