Karanovic & Partners has announced the withdrawal of Founding Partners Patricia Gannon and Dejan Nikolic, after a prolonged process.

Gannon and Nikolic were two of then-Karanovic & Nikolic's founding partners, back in Belgrade, in 1995, and have been with the firm since.

In a short statement released to the media, Karanovic & Partners explained that "both Dejan and Patricia have played a vital role in contributing to the immense success of the firm over the past 25 years. Dejan led the firm’s expansion strategy throughout the former Yugoslavia to what it has become today - the leading regional legal practice. Patricia brought to the firm the internationalism it needed, and we acknowledge her vision, integrity, and business strategy, which led us to where we are today. Recent years have seen Dejan focusing on disciplinary role and activities in the Belgrade Bar Association and Patricia focusing on matters related to her International Bar Association role and activities, developing startups and scale ups, and impact consulting and VC development, in addition to supporting and advising more women in business support networks."

"We applaud our founding partners for their lifelong contributions," the firm concluded, "and wish them both the very best in their future careers."

Bosnia and Herzegovina Knowledge Partner

Maric & Co Law Firm stands on the shoulders of more than 70 years of experience and practice in the legal market of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Having in mind that it is difficult to find a small country with such a complicated political and legal system, we are fully aware that quality advice requires deep understanding of different areas of law. In a country where legislation is created on state, entity and cantonal levels, without proper harmonization, and where the same regulation can be applied differently by two different courts, only domestic lawyers who are well-versed in local regulations and court practices, and who are highly specialized in their practice area, may actually help their client.

With this understanding, today, the firm Maric and Co is the largest law office in the country dealing exclusively with business law. This means that we provide wide expertise in resolving all issues that domestic and international investors encounter when setting up and operating businesses in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The scope of the office allows each of our attorneys to highly specialize in their fields, whilst the size of our team ensures delivery of premium advice and seamless service. Our firm seeks long-term partnerships with clients with the aim of providing the best and most complete solution to the client's legal needs. We are proud to say that our clients do not leave us.

We apply the same principles to our international affairs, aware of the fact that no foreign lawyer can have the same understanding of legal regulations of a country as a domestic lawyer. Therefore, our philosophy is not to open branches in countries where our clients do business, but to closely connect with top tier lawyers in those countries. Our law firm is one of the founding members of SEE Legal – a group of ten leading national law firms from 12 South East European countries. This network enables us to provide the best advice and representation in these countries. Additionally, as a result of our strong relationship with the majority of global law firms, we are able to provide law services anywhere in the world.
