Onnig Dombalagian specializes in U.S. and international regulation of securities and derivatives markets and the relationship of federal and state law in the governance of public companies.

Dombalagian, who joined the Tulane Law School faculty in 2003, was named vice dean for academic affairs in 2016. He brings practical experience in market regulation to his teaching and scholarship: he worked as an attorney fellow at the Securities and Exchange Commission and in private practice as an associate at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton. He also served a three-year term a member of the National Adjudicatory Council of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and acts as an arbitrator with FINRA Dispute Resolution. FINRA is the largest independent regulator of securities firms doing business in the United States.

His book Chasing the Tape: Information Law and Policy in Capital Markets (The MIT Press) debuted in April 2015. He also published “The Expressive Synergies of the Volcker Rule” (Boston College Law Review 2013).
He received the Felix Frankfurter Distinguished Teaching Award in 2007 and was a visiting professor at the American University of Armenia in 2000.
