Firm's News & Events

Firm's Background

BRIEF HISTORY

The Founding

Sherman & Sherman, Inc. was founded in July 1989 by Counselor H. Varney G. Sherman, who conceived the idea when he was still a junior partner at Maxwell & Maxwell, then the largest and most prestigious law firm in Liberia in terms of the number of corporate clients on a multi-year retainer. Counselor Sherman joined Maxwell & Maxwell in 1980, became its first junior partner in 1986, took over the management of that firm in 1987, and left in 1989 to launch Sherman & Sherman, Inc.

Sherman & Sherman was the first law firm to be incorporated and the intention was that other lawyers (partners) would acquire shares in the corporation and own these shares as long as they continue to be active as lawyers working for Sherman & Sherman. It was a new kind of law firm, which Counselor Sherman had wanted to re-make Maxwell & Maxwell into, but eventually had to leave Maxwell & Maxwell, to realize that dream through the founding of Sherman & Sherman.

The Take Off...

Sherman & Sherman began business in the B.P. House (later known as Pegasus House) at the corner of Ashmun & Mechlin Streets in Monrovia, Liberia, with three lawyers and a legal secretary: Counselor (Cllr.) Pei Edwin Gausi, Cllr. Snonsio Nigba, Cllr. H. Varney G. Sherman and Mr. William Danquah (Legal Secretary).

As the firm grew in clientèle and staff, so its needs for a bigger office space. In 2002, Sherman & Sherman moved into its own office building, the R. Fole Sherman Law Building, located at the corner of 17th Street and Chessman Avenue in Sinkor, Monrovia, Liberia.
