McManimon, Scotland & Baumann LLC has made an addition to its commercial real estate team, one of five new hires for the Roseland-based law firm.
Jennifer Harrison joins the redevelopment practice as an associate with nearly a decade of experience, according to her bio. Prior to McManimon Scotland, she worked as an attorney for a New York law firm, where she represented institutional lenders in commercial real estate financing.
