Stein Sperling represented the prevailing litigant  in the 2020 landmark decision of Plank v. Cherneski, et al., where Maryland’s highest court made clear once and for all that there exists an independent claim for breach of fiduciary duty under Maryland law. This simple statement clarified years of confusion arising out conflicting court decisions on this point, and reset the table for business and fiduciary relationships and litigation in Maryland.   Stein Sperling’s fiduciary litigation attorneys have literally helped establish the law that now guides all manner of fiduciary relationships in Maryland, and we also have extensive experience in DC and Virginia in litigating these claims, whether in corporate or estate settings, or in any setting where a fiduciary relationship may exist.
