The team comprises, together with the firm's specialized tax and intellectual property divisions, 115 attorneys, 20 tax consultants and three intellectual property counselors

A distinguishing feature of the firm has long been its emphasis on providing superior, individualized client service. Every attorney in the firm understands that the practice of law requires extensive knowledge, remarkable skills and unwavering responsiveness. NNDKP offers the combination of legal insight, courtroom experience, industry knowledge and practical business sense needed to help clients prevail in their most complex cases.

The firm is constantly top ranked by the most important international legal guides such as Chambers & Partners, The European Legal 500 and IFLR 1000. Moreover, NNDKP is the only law firm in Romania that was awarded thrice (2009, 2012, 2013) "Law Firm of the Year in Romania" by Chambers Europe. This year, NNDKP was granted for the second time "Romanian Intellectual Property Firm of the Year" at the Managing Intellectual Property Global Awards gala, a landmark event in the field of IP.

Chambers & Partners noted in one of its 2014 editorials: “The team offers the combination of legal assistance, outstanding professional competence, courtroom experience, industry knowledge and practical business sense we need for the most complicated cases,” while IFLR 1000 stated in its latest edition: “NNDKP is steeped in history [...] The strongly independent firm is also internationally minded [...] It is tier 1 across the board.”

The firm's results reflect the unique diversity of experience, outstanding professional competence, creativity, practical thinking and commitment, as well as a demonstrated history of first rate legal advice. In this tradition, some of the highest profile lawyers in Romania, consistently recognized locally and internationally for their contribution to the development of the legal profession, have formed generations of talented and enthusiastic young lawyers who share the beliefs and values of the firm.
