Information on a selection of funds and companies currently under investigation by Malecki Law can be found below. Our pursuit of excellence is constant, but our opportunities to make lasting positive change to the securities industry begin and end with determined clients who seek justice.

Malecki Law is currently investigating the potential for recovery of losses from Citigroup’s FALCON and ASTA-MAT hedge funds, as sold by its broker-dealer Smith Barney in the years spanning from 2005 to 2008. It is alleged that Citigroup presented the funds as affordable options, with fair-to-little risk and low volatility.

If the group failed to disclose crucial information about dangerous aspects of the funds and potential for severe losses, a claim may be warranted. Both funds were increasingly and excessively invested in real estate, leading to both funds reporting upward of 80% losses in 2008. Investors’ legal claims against Citigroup have included but are not limited to Fraud, Failure to Supervise, Unsuitability, Misrepresentations & Omissions, Breach of Contract, and Breach of Fiduciary Duty.

It is the right of any and all investors who believe they may have suffered losses as a result of recommendations of their financial advisor to contact our offices to explore their legal rights and options.
