Attorney Pearce works closely with in-house legal and management teams to achieve the client's ultimate objective and avoid prosecution. It is essential, at the outset of any new commodities investigation or enforcement action to identify a sound strategy that is calculated to lead to a speedy and favorable resolution. In some cases, it is advisable to work cooperatively with the government; in other cases, a more defensive posture is appropriate. Regardless of the strategy, Mr. Pearce is a lawyer who has a reputation for credibility and effectiveness in his dealings with the government investigators.

An Experienced Miami and South Florida Precious Metals Defense Attorney

The commodities environment has become more challenging with the recent Dodd-Frank Amendments and increased authority granted to the CFTC and its Division of Enforcement. As a result, the CFTC has shown unprecedented aggressiveness in its investigations of trading activity in the nation's commodity markets. The leveraged precious metals brokerage business has become the focus of the CFTC and other regulators' attention in South Florida. Attorney Pearce is currently involved in several investigations and defending clients because the CFTC had "no jurisdiction" over the leveraged precious metals businesses anywhere in the United States prior to the enactment of Dodd Frank.

Client Reviews
Robert Pearce is part of that unusual breed of lawyers that are able to create empathy with clients and thoroughly adopt their cause. No half efforts here. He and his group of professionals are outstanding strategists that can execute with precise fervor and unyielding determination. Theirs is a huge wave of facts, research, precedents and preparation, that has impressed me in its thoroughness and creativity, and most importantly with the results. No stone goes unturned and no effort is ever spared. In my book, he and they are those of a very rare kind that one wants to keep for a very long time. Ramon F.
This law firm is the real deal. We were so lucky that they took our case as they have so much experience in securities and all the wrongdoing that happens in these investment companies where they mislead you and your money (as in our case) into schemes that are not what you think they are. Mr. Robert Pearce is one of the best lawyers around, a truly professional who will fight for you and will tell you as it is all the time. Astrid M.
Mr. Pearce is a great professional and attorney. He led me through every step of the process in a clear, direct and straightforward manner. I highly recommend him as a securities attorney. Rey S.
Just like the song from HAMILTON, it's so nice to have Bob Pearce on your side. He is the consumate plaintiff's lawyer: smart. dedicated, fully able to try a case but a great negotiator in a mediation. He did a wonderful job for us, fully supporting us through the process and more than holding his own against a large national law firm. Maurice Z.
No lawyer except Bob said I had a chance of winning. When Ubs lawyers laughingly offered me zero to settle the dispute, Bob became even more determined to prove everybody wrong. Bob was extremely prepared, and always a step ahead of the opposing attorneys throughout the arbitration. In the end, Bob and I had the last laugh when the arbitrators awarded me almost 6 million dollars. J. Blanco
