From Jenice's interview for the Masters of the Courtroom series on ReelLawyers.com.
Malecki Law has successfully represented clients for over 20 years. After nearly a decade working with securities industry law firms, Ms. Malecki started Malecki Law with a vision that the securities laws and rules can be used to help both investors and industry professionals.
Working in mandatory securities arbitration from its inception, on class action securities fraud cases and individual actions in state and federal court, Ms. Malecki has been instrumental in defining issues in securities cases from NYS State, Appellate Division and Court of Appeal cases to issues in the Southern District of New York through Second Circuit Appeals. These matters range from SEC and FINRA enforcement matters, (including targets, whistleblowers and witnesses) to investor arbitrations and industry employment disputes, including U5 issues and upfront bonus compensation and forgivable loans. As a member of FINRA’s National Arbitration and Mediation Committee advising FINRA’s Board of Directors, Ms. Malecki has helped define and create FINRA Rules and law in the State of New York on the definition of customer and attorneys’ fees awards as they exist today, but there is always more work to do.
Malecki Law has always been sharply focused on securities law and commercial litigation. We zealously represent both investors and employees in securities disputes, whistleblowing, regulatory and self-regulatory matters, as well as related types of commercial litigation. We always fight for the rights of our clients against major entities that want to control the story and the markets to the detriment of both investors and registered professionals. We are not about to let that happen.
At Malecki Law, we have succeeded in obtaining multi-million dollar settlements in FINRA arbitrations, litigations, business disputes, employment disputes, tax shelter fraud cases, and Ponzi scheme cases. In the last few years alone, we have represented high profile investors, industry professionals, securities industry whistleblowers and subpoenaed witnesses in prominent securities industry cases before the SEC, Department of Justice, U.S. Attorney’s office, FINRA, and the New York D.A.’s office.
Our dedication to our clients and success on their cases has led to our attorneys being regularly recognized for professional excellence. We have several eminent ratings for high ethical standards and have been named Top Attorneys for consecutive years.
Litigation and arbitration are as much of an art as a practice, and part of that is knowing how to deal with regulators. While it seems simple, the truth is your advocate, properly explained and in context of the facts and the law. Your story does not have to be perfect, but has to be perfectly presented. Malecki Law’s skills rest in this sweet spot. We have an excellent reputation with regulators and adversaries alike, but it did not come easy, because trust it is the product of many years of consistent excellence and trustworthy advocacy. Peers endorse and recommend Malecki Law, because we give back to the legal community. Clients recommend us because we delivered on our word.
We believe in listening to our client’s choices and decisions after offering them counsel and laying out alternatives. Our job is to get our clients options to either resolve their dispute or find the best path to achieve a winning result before a finder of fact. This philosophy has been embraced by each of our attorneys, who endeavor to understand each client’s unique personal circumstance. As a result, you get a very personalized experience at Malecki Law, where we strive to earn and maintain your trust and confidence in us.
Malecki Law leaves no stone unturned in your case; your future is our business.
