Originally, CEO Cha was acting as an advisor to Muwon’s mother Shin Sukhee with regards to her efforts to acquire a large distributor firm. Therefore, a principal-fiduciary relationship was created. A fiduciary owes, among others, the legal and legally enforceable duty of loyalty to his principal. The duty of loyalty requires the fiduciary to put the principal’s interest ahead of his own.
Despite this, CEO Cha, upon finding out that Shin Sukhee had turned one his executives onto her side without his knowledge, decided to interfere with Shin Sukhee’s efforts to acquire the distributor firm by aiding her adversary. As a result, Shin Sukhee was forced to pay a price for the distributor firm that was much higher than she would have paid if CEO Cha had not stepped into the acquisition battle.
In doing so, CEO Cha violated his fiduciary duty of loyalty owed to his principal Shin Sukhee and her corporation. Thus, Muwon is contemplating bringing suit to correct this injustice.
