“We’re honored to recognize the members of the inaugural ‘They’ve Got Next: The 40 Under 40” class for the significant impacts they have already made on the legal profession,” said Lisa Helem, executive editor for strategic initiatives at Bloomberg Industry Group. “Bloomberg Law is firmly committed to industry-leading coverage of the legal landscape and to highlighting the young attorneys who are shaping its future.”
Palnitkar, who is based in Greenberg Traurig’s Dallas office, is a trial lawyer whose practice focuses on resolving complex business and intellectual property disputes through litigation, arbitration, and alternative dispute resolution. With a national and international practice tailored to the needs and expectations of her clients, she has broad experience handling breach of contract, trademark infringement litigation, anti-counterfeiting enforcement, international FCPA compliance matters, medical malpractice defense for health care entities, fraud, tortious interference, and theft of trade secrets. Palnitkar’s practical experience and approach to dispute resolution covers a number of disciplines and industries, including health care, start-up firms, and technology.
“Bina is an extraordinary attorney whose significant contributions to our client’s legal successes have set her apart,” said Lori G. Cohen, Greenberg Traurig vice chair, co-chair of the firm’s Global Litigation Practice, and chair of its Trial Practice Group.
Within Greenberg Traurig, Palnitkar has led the firm’s Dallas Women’s Initiative - a firmwide effort that supports the inclusion/advancement of women at Greenberg Traurig and in the legal profession through unique programming and resources to benefit the firm’s attorneys, their clients, and future lawyers. She also leads the finance committee of the Board of Directors of the Foundation for Callier Center and Communication Disorders at the Children’s Medical Center Dallas and created the Mahila Dallas organization. Named for the word “woman” in Hindi, the nonprofit has raised thousands of dollars to support Milaap USA’s microloan program funding impoverished women entrepreneurs in India.
“It is a true honor to be recognized by Bloomberg Law,” Palnikar said. “I look forward to continuing to build on the success I have experienced both as a litigator and one who contributes to the welfare of communities here and abroad.”
Several of Palnitkar’s clients commented in her Bloomberg Law nomination, including:
Andy Cooper, vice president, Corporate Security at United Parcel Service of America, Inc. said: “Bina is a creative and brilliant advocate who made it clear from our first meeting that she would handle disputes for UPS zealously and counsel our company forthrightly. ”
