Former Karanovic & Partners Partner Patricia Gannon has announced the establishment of Gannon Advisory, which she describes as "a holistic strategic advisory business."

Gannon was one of the Founding Partners of Karanovic Nikolic, now Karanovic & Partners, which, in the intervening 25 years — and now with over 200 people — has become the largest regional firm in the former Yugoslavia. In September, Karanovic & Partners announced that she and fellow Founding Partner Dejan Nikolic had left the firm (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on September 21, 2020).

According to a Gannon Advisory press release, "leveraging off her 20-year plus experience in leadership, management, business development, strategy, and the expansion of the practice in new markets and new areas of law, many of her clients are in the legal sector where she advises on law firm management and a particular focus on women in law leadership skills." In addition, according to the press release, "having worked at the European Commission in Brussels, a German law firm in Munich and at a top law firm in Dublin, she brings a level of internationalism and professionalism to this practice."

Gannon is a founding member of the Serbian Private Equity Association and served as Chair of the European Forum of the International Bar Association, where she is now a member of the Advisory Board. She is also founder of the WE Angels network of women entrepreneurs supporting women-led businesses in the Balkans and the initiator of Here 4 Her, a movement designed to empower women through development of skills and networks. 

According to the Gannon Advisory press release, "this new move will focus on broader advisory work in addition to legal advisory."

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.
