The Law Office Marić was established in 1959 when its founder, Dr. Vladimir Marić started a private practice as an Attorney at Law with focus on corporate law. His specialty at that moment determined the future profile of the Office that has been kept until today. The practice has been taken over by Mr. Branko Marić, Attorney at Law, who has built it into the leading player in the market. In 2010 the Office transformed into the law firm and has been working steadily with over 25 attorneys at law and reputable clients' list and work portfolio.

With the goal to provide the best legal services to the participants at the small B&H's market, the professional development of the firm was oriented to the growth and specialisation of its lawyers. Such approach resulted in top rankings in almost all areas of themajor legal directories (IFLR1000, Chambers & Partners, The Legal 500). For the past ten years Marić & Co. has been ranked either as the best or in the first tier.

Chambers Europe market sources say Branko Marić is "truly outstanding - a legend among foreign investors on the market". They add that he is "well able to handle the most complicated issues, and advises clearly and with great authority". IFLR1000 states that With a wealth in experience, Branko Marić is one of the most respected players in the market”. According to The Legal 500 EMEA, Marić & Co. Law Firm is one of the largest law firms in B&H, with 25 lawyers. Branko Marić has an outstanding reputation, and can ‘always be recommended’; he has vast experience and provides ‘qualitative’ and ‘professional’ advice“.

According to Chambers Europe, Branko Marić remains one of the most established and revered practitioners in the corporate market, described as "a guru of the law", by sources. His in-depth experience covers all manner of transactional, advisory and contentious cases.

The Legal 500 EMEA says it "is the largest player in the market and its competency is demonstrated by the calibre and profile of the work it wins".

Furthermore, it says that Marić & Co. Law Firm is “one of the largest and most respected firms in the country, evidenced by an extensive list of household-name international clients; these include Coca-Cola HbC, Volvo and media channel Al Jazeera, which the firm assists with everyday corporate matters. The firm advised Porsche on its high-profile co-operation with local vehicle importer ASA Group. The much-respected Branko Marić heads the practice and the firm”.

Clients value the fact that the Firm "knows the local market inside-out and can effectively guide international businesses on legal issues".
