On behalf of Girard Bengali, APC posted on Friday, March 15, 2019.

A founding partner of Los Angeles, California-based Girard Bengali, APC, Robert J. Girard II has 18 years of experience practicing in the area of complex securities litigation. As a result of his background, he has been asked to deliver a presentation at an upcoming conference sponsored by the Public Investors Arbitration Bar Association, which is to take place on April 4 in Washington, D.C.

The continuing legal education program is focused on current issues in securities arbitration. Mr. Girard, who has substantial experience with representing financial professionals and brokerage firms that have been accused of financial misconduct, will be speaking on the topic of FINRA expungement proceedings and the regulatory changes that might impact this legal practice area. Expungement involves the process of removing customer dispute information from the Central Registration Depository file of a broker or brokerage firm. While expungements are controversial, they may be granted through FINRA arbitration proceedings.

The PIABA mid-year meeting is designed for attorneys and other legal professionals, but it is open to all individuals. Attorneys are able to earn continuing legal education credits for their attendance, and other invitees include paralegals, educators, and securities regulators and arbitrators.

In addition to complex securities matters, the attorneys at Girard Bengali, APC, have helped clients with other matters as well, including financial professionals who have been the victims of unlawful workplace discrimination, wrongful termination, or sexual harassment. We have also represented women at the middle- and upper-management level who have been paid less than their male counterparts in similar positions. For more information about how our attorneys might be able to assist you, visit our practice area pages to see the types of matters that we handle.
