On Thursday, November 9, 2023, New York City securities lawyer Jenice L. Malecki, Esq., will be part of a live panel at the 20th Annual Small Law Firm Symposium organized by the New York City Bar Association. The program will feature panels discussing some of the most pressing topics affecting small law firms today, including how to grow your firm by acquisition, how to manage your firm with freelance lawyers, the evolving dialogue around diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, cyber threats, Chat GPT and the use of artificial intelligence tools in practice, effective communications and positive outcomes, and how to create the legal practice and a life you love.
At the event, Ms. Malecki is scheduled to speak on 1:20 p.m. at the panel, titled “Looking Through the Lens of a Small Law Firm/Solo Practice: The Evolving Dialogue Around Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging.” She will be speaking along with Gerard M. Anthony from Anthony Law Group PLLC, Nydia Shahjahan from Nydia Shahjahan Esq. P.C., and Stacey M. Cameron from S.M. Cameron Law and Mediation, PLLC. Ms. Malecki will draw on her experience as the founder of one of the few woman-led Manhattan-based securities law firms and her nearly thirty-five years of securities industry practice at a time when women are still struggling with pay discrepancies and disparities within the financial services industry. If you have suffered investment losses at the hands of your stockbroker or investment advisor, it could be beneficial to consult an experienced securities law attorney, like the ones at Malecki Law.
Ms. Malecki takes pride in sharing her experiences as the founder of a successful, boutique securities law firm and regularly presents as a panelist at major industry events across the country. In fact, in October 2023, Ms. Malecki had the opportunity to participate in panels related to discovery issues and ethics issues at the Public Investors Advocate Bar Association (PIABA) Annual Meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Ms. Malecki’s law firm focuses on securities law and commercial litigation, zealously represents investors and financial industry employees, and has obtained millions of dollars in settlements. On top of her legal success, Ms. Malecki is committed to diversity and inclusion. Today, 2/3 of the Malecki Law team are women, and 1/3 are people of color. Ms. Malecki looks forward to bringing her personal insight on effective diversity and inclusion initiatives to the panel. If you are a financial professional who was wrongfully terminated from a financial firm or are under investigation by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) or the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), it would be wise to consult an attorney with a background in employment and regulatory disputes, like attorneys at Malecki Law.
