MAT/ASTA Investigation

Miami and Fort Lauderdale MAT/ASTA Fraud Lawyer Nationwide Representation of MAT/ASTA Fraud Victims

The collapse of Citigroup's fixed income hedge funds marketed as MAT or ASTA in 2007 and 2008 is the subject of an investigation of Citigroup, Inc., and numerous investor claims being pursued by The Law Offices of Robert Wayne Pearce, P.A., for MAT/ASTA fraud and MAT/ASTA mismanagement.

The Citigroup/Smith Barney brokers and Citibank private bankers who sold the hedge funds are not the targets of the MAT/ASTA investigation or MAT/ASTA investor claims. Rather, the investigation and claims focus on Citigroup, Inc. (NYSE: c), Citigroup Global Markets, Inc., Citibank, N.A., and Citigroup Alternative Investments, LLC, and the officers who developed, mismarketed and mismanaged the MAT/ASTA municipal arbitrage funds.

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
