Moreover, against an unpredictable economic background subject to legislative changes, shaping a new “line” of future leaders from amongst gifted lawyers and consultants, will ensure that our teams are more flexible and better adapted to the specifics of key industries, such as: banking and finance, insurance and private pensions, energy, real estate, FMCG, pharmaceuticals, IT & Telecom", declared Ion Nestor, one of NNDKP’s Co-Managing Partners.
