She is also a member of the firm’s Labor & Employment Practice. “At the SIFMA session, I plan to share successful strategies to overcome obstacles to resolution, and I will also touch on ethical considerations for lawyers during the negotiation process.”


Gerber regularly defends major Wall Street brokerage firms, registered investment advisers and other financial institutions in a wide variety of employment disputes in arbitration, before administrative agencies, and in state and federal courts nationwide. She has substantial cross-over experience in the regulatory and sales practice arena, having handled numerous Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and state regulatory inquiries, investigations and enforcement proceedings, as well as customer arbitrations.

Bush in the Florida litigation that determined the presidency. In that capacity, he effectively managed 47 cases throughout the state, personally arguing many of them. “The panel also hopes to provide insight into the issues the court may be considering now and in the future.”
