Denver Business Journal Features Terrance Carroll’s Arrival at Sherman & Howard

The Denver Business Journal interviewed Sherman & Howard corporate and political law attorney Terrance Carroll regarding his arrival at the firm. In the article, Carroll shares his reasons for becoming a lawyer, why he chose Sherman & Howard, and his connection to the first African American member of the U.S. Supreme Court, Thurgood Marshall.

Below is an excerpt from the article.

“One of the reasons I wanted to become a lawyer was because of folks like Thurgood Marshall and Constance Baker Motley, those great African American lawyers who laid the groundwork for the modern Civil Rights movement,” Carroll said.

He said he was also nudged toward a return to private law through personal interactions with businesses seeking help in areas that are his expertise — particularly smaller businesses seeking help with government regulations.

“You can be a lawyer at a big firm and provide people who are small-, [or] medium-sized businesses that large corporation touch,” said Carroll, who ran his own small business boarding horses on his Colorado ranch.

This time around, he said he chose Sherman & Howard because of the firm’s long history in Denver, Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West.

“I wanted to be at a law firm that really reflected my values, really had the same commitment to Denver and Colorado that I did,” Carroll said.
