In a lengthy breach of fiduciary duty case, the trustee had several lawyers. One of the lawyers from a couple of years ago is coming forward demanding that the Trust pay her for her representation of the previous trustee against the beneficiaries. The beneficiaries have settled with the previous trustee, and a new trustee has been appointed, as it was discovered that the previous trustee had created a trustee vacancy pursuant to probate code 15643(f) when she filed for bankruptcy before the beneficiaries sued. Does the previous trustee's lawyer have grounds to sue the Trust for fees? In this case, the lawyer was not a previous trust lawyer, but was hired solely to represent the previous trustee against the beneficiaries.
