Firm's News & Events

Insurance Law Practice Area

Insurance Law is a practice area where Sherman & Sherman has acquired extensive experience. In the mid-1980s, Counsellor Sherman joined other Liberians to establish an insurance company (Universal Insurance Company) and he served as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for that company for more than six years, interacting with the Bureau of Insurance, the public regulator, and the insured public on settlement of claims. Also for his first few years at Maxwell & Maxwell, he was one of the retained lawyers for the largest insurance company in Liberia, MINET Insurance. However, it was not until the civil crisis, when several claims were lodged against CIGNA Worldwide Insurance Company that Sherman & Sherman, as legal counsel, to several of the claimants, delved deeply into the insurance law of Liberia. To its credit, Sherman & Sherman successfully got CIGNA to settle three of its claims after litigation had commenced; but for one of its claims, CIGNA refused to settle or to even honor a Liberian judgment. Sherman & Sherman also associated with US lawyers in filing claims against CIGNA in the United States; one of those claims was successfully settled after litigation had commenced.

In recent years, Sherman & Sherman has had only one insurance company client, albeit the largest and oldest insurance company in Liberia. Its practice is therefore limited to advising its client on the settlement of claims and representing it in court on claims which finally end in litigation.

With the experience acquired in setting up and managing an insurance company in the 1980s and prosecuting the interest of insureds against CIGNA Worldwide Insurance Company during the 1990s, and considering that the insurance law of Liberia has remained virtually unchanged since, Sherman & Sherman considers itself sufficiently competent to handle the legal affairs of an insurance company, commencing from the requirements for establishing an insurance business in Liberia on to the legal risks in managing one.

In fact, as the largest insurance company in Liberia, Sherman & Sherman's client does have a myriad of claims; and these claims are being managed by Sherman & Sherman exclusively and virtually successfully.
