Jenice L. Malecki, Esq., founder of the New York City securities law firm Malecki Law, is scheduled to speak this Friday November 19th at the American Bar Association’s Women in Litigation Joint CLE Conference. The conference is scheduled November 17-19, 2021 at the Boston Park Plaza in Boston, Massachusetts. The conference highlights leading women litigators in a number of legal areas, with Ms. Malecki invited to speak on FINRA expungement matters, defamation lawsuits, and wrongful terminations relating to employment arbitrations litigated in FINRA’s dispute resolution forum.
For the last thirty years, Ms. Malecki has been an industry trailblazer as a leading female litigator in securities matters, having represented throughout her career a cross section of retail investors, brokerage firms, and employees within the securities industry. The breadth of Ms. Malecki’s experience and success is atypical in the legal profession, and particularly in securities litigation, because the field has been traditionally male dominated. She is an adjunct securities law professor at the New York Law School and has published scholarly works on women’s issues in the law, amongst numerous other securities-related topics. Earlier this year, Ms. Malecki authored a paper published in the Public Investors Advocate Bar Association (PIABA) Bar Journal, Vol. 28, No. 1, entitled Minorities and Women in the Securities Industry: The Disproportionate Impact of Securities Fraud Exploitation. Ms. Malecki was also a panelist at last year’s PIABA Annual Meeting and Securities Law Seminar where she spoke on the issue of Women Lawyers, Arbitrators, and Expert Witnesses.
Ms. Malecki is an ex-vice president of PIABA and sat on the advisory board for FINRA’s National Arbitration and Mediation Committee. She was recently appointed in September of this year as co-chair of the New York State Bar Association’s (NYSBA) Commercial & Federal Litigation Section’s Securities Arbitration Committee. The committee recognizes Ms. Malecki’s experience in the securities arena with the goal of promoting healthy industry relationships between litigators, administrative bodies, and the courts.
