What We Do

Our areas of practice span two categories: general legal services to public and private sector clients and social impact projects.

Corporate and Commercial Services

Our goal is to ensure that we provide optimal legal services to both domestic and international clients from the inception of their business by ensuring proper registration and due organization. Our commitment to rendering exceptional services to our clients continues after organization by ensuring compliance with the law and guidance through the maze of public regulations and other legal requirements. Our zeal for ensuring that our clients are well-positioned in the business market in Liberia is evidenced by our willingness to step out of the box of conventional legal wisdom and to provide our clients with savvy and strategic commercial advice specific to Liberia’s nuanced business sector.

Litigation

As litigation is expensive, time consuming and potentially disruptive of the operations of business entities, we do not seek to litigate every issue as a matter of course. We weigh the pros and cons, the potential impact on a client and its business, providing legal guidance from the moment an adverse claim or other dispute arises or a right to relief accrues. Amicable and alternative dispute resolution is sought prior to litigation. But if litigation becomes the only means of resolving differences, our attorneys remain engaged with the client every step of the way, until the case is concluded. We avail ourselves of every legal resource, strategy and tool to ensure our clients have the legal advantage.

Government Relations

We understand that a successful government relations program involves not just policy expertise but also personal and political relationships with policymakers. This real-world experience enhances our understanding of the ever-shifting political landscape and the government maze that will help our clients expedite issues, seize opportunities and prevent problems; and, present issues effectively to both government officials and the public, gaining support for the Company’s positions, while obtaining results that matter.

Social Impact

We also seek to play a key role in social transformation in Liberia by providing services to private and government clients on a broad spectrum of social matters. Charlyne M. Brumskine, CMB’s Managing Attorney, was the lead consulting attorney to the Ministry of Justice Anti-Human Trafficking National Action Plan team, where she developed, drafted and assisted in the implementation of Liberia’s National Action Plan. She was also a lead member of the GOL’s Joint Anti-Human Trafficking Secretariat (comprised of the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Labor) and assisted in developing strategy for its anti-human trafficking public awareness and outreach campaign. She served as counsel on the Ministry of Commerce’s World Trade Organization (WTO) Accession team in Geneva.

CMB’S CORPORATE CONSCIOUSNESS

One of CMB’s corporate values is that legal persons should live in harmony with and contribute to the social welfare of natural persons. In furtherance of this belief, CMB dedicates a percentage of its annual revenue to projects that impact Liberia’s society.
