Maric Law Office
Maric Law Office was established in 1959 when its founder Dr Vladimir Maric left the position of president of the Commercial Court in Sarajevo and started a private practice as an attorney at law.

Dr Maric’s specialization at that time determined the present profile of the Office. The firm developed strongly after Bosnia and Herzegovina opened to foreign investments and foreign capital.
