Dorothy “Dottie” Bolinsky, a partner at Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, has been named by NJBIZ as one of New Jersey’s Best 50 Women in Business. Bolinsky will accept the award at a gala March 30 at the Palace at Somerset Park, Somerset, N.J.
Bolinsky, a partner in Drinker Biddle’s Real Estate Practice Group, represents clients from individuals to Fortune 500 companies on real estate matters including commercial leasing, acquisition, disposition, financing, operations, development and zoning. Bolinsky has been recognized in the past for her legal and business accomplishments. In 2004 the Mercer County Bar Association named her the Young Lawyer of the Year and in 2006 she was selected by Real Estate New Jersey magazine as a Woman of Influence.
“As a partner in the Real Estate Practice Group, I have worked closely with Dottie over these last 10 years,” said Jonathan I. Epstein, regional partner in charge of Drinker Biddle’s Princeton office, who nominated Bolinsky for this award. “I can think of no person more deserving of this honor and I know our clients would agree.”
NJBIZ’s Best 50 Women in Business recognizes the most dynamic and accomplished businesswomen in New Jersey, highlighting their contributions to their businesses and communities, and salutes their abilities to overcome obstacles in nontraditional work environments. The award winners were selected based on their professional accomplishments, community involvement and advocacy for women. In addition to her busy practice at Drinker Biddle, Bolinsky is a founder of The Salt Shaker Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness and money to support cancer research and survivorship programs. She is also a member of her office’s Women’s Marketing Group, which provides support and mentoring to female members of the firm, as well as hosts networking events for businesswomen in the Princeton area.
