GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum – 2022 Women of Influence
Chair of Herrick's Real Estate Department, Belinda Schwartz, was named to GlobeSt.'s Third Annual Women of Influence listing. The list celebrates the women who drive the commercial real estate industry forward. Since 1983, GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum has recognized a growing number of female industry professionals for their achievements.
The publication notes that Belinda is a "partner at Herrick, Feinstein LLP, where she has chaired the real estate department since 2014. At the firm, she leads more than 65 attorneys and urban planners, manages all practice development initiatives and collaborates with other Herrick lawyers to develop legal solutions for complex real estate matters."
The listing continues, "Schwartz became the first female member of the firm’s five-person executive committee in 2017 and she helps steer its overall direction. Schwartz considers herself a team member before a leader and is happy to mentor junior attorneys formally or informally about their career paths or deals. She also serves as a go-to advisor for investors with unique concerns about multi-generational family-owned real estate businesses and family offices, for whom she serves as outside general counsel, and foreign investors who count on her to bridge cultural and business practices and translate the intricacies of the U.S. real estate market."
