Nestor Nestor Diculescu Kingston Petersen (NNDKP) assisted Isosport, the world market leader in the field of plastic composite materials for the ski and snowboard industry, in a multi-jurisdictional transaction for the acquisition of Novo Tech Group, a leading manufacturer of high-quality plastic products.
