Firm's News & Events

Commercial Law Practice Area

A substantial area of business activities in Liberia is the export of commodities and import of consumer and user goods and machines and there are many companies involved in this sector of the Liberian company. These companies are also involved in general merchandising either as wholesalers or retailers or both. Sherman & Sherman is the retained legal counsel for several of the large companies involved in these commercial activities. 

Representation of these clients involve knowledge of import/export law, distribution and marketing law, debt structuring and debt collection law.

Some times goods imported into Liberia or exported from Liberia are under letters of credit and Sherman & Sherman is involved in the process on behalf of its client either at the negotiation stage or securing the rights of the client under the letter of credit. Even where importation is financed by cash, a Sherman & Sherman client is sometimes faced with issues of short-landing of the goods or delay in shipment and Sherman & Sherman has to make representation and/or file claims on behalf on its client against the shipping company (vessel) or the insurer of the consignment.

Sherman & Sherman clients have their own stores (department stores, supermarkets and wholesale warehouses) from which they sell goods to the public. Some of these goods are sold on credit; and for such transactions, Sherman & Sherman not only prepares the credit documentation but also has to enforce the client's right thereunder in the event of default. 

For each of these clients, there must be constant interaction with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, which regulates the importation and exportation of goods. Sherman & Sherman very often has to make representations to the Ministry of Commerce and Industry on behalf of its clients for licenses to import certain goods and for orders necessary for the conduct of the client's business. Sherman & Sherman is very familiar with the regulatory bureaucracy to get things accomplished at the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. 

The availability of lawyers of Sherman & Sherman on a continuous basis (24/7) is most useful to its commercial clients, who have to deal with the consuming public and the public authorities on an almost daily basis for the transaction of their businesses. The problems which arise from these interactions very often require the prompt counsel of a lawyer to guard the client against pitfalls.
