“On behalf of the Hanft Fride team, shareholders and clients, I’d like to congratulate Jennifer Carey on being listed among the Power 30,” said Jacob Baker, Hanft Fride shareholder. “ We have a very strong real estate practice at Hanft Fride, and her high level of experience in condo and resort development and her commitment to professionalism in the law makes her a leader at Hanft Fride, in Northeastern Minnesota and statewide. She is very deserving of this recognition.”

Every year, Minnesota Lawyer selects the POWER 30 based on interviews with Minnesota attorneys, a review of significant matters, and Minnesota Lawyer’s own coverage of top practitioners and impactful cases. The POWER 30 excel in their respective fields, adding credibility, insight and experience to every case they take on. Additionally, the Power 30 are attorneys who have influenced the direction of the law, whose leadership in the community is pervasive and whose respect within the bar is undeniable, according to Minnesota Lawyer.
