Sidley represented NuVera Medical, Inc., a medical technology company, in connection with its acquisition by Ethicon, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. NuVera’s NuVision ICE Catheter is a next-generation ultrasound technology intended for electrophysiology ablation and structural heart interventions, and designed to allow physicians to view complex intracardiac structures from a completely new perspective and high-resolution image rendering in real time. NuVera was formed by Shifamed, a Silicon Valley-based medical innovation hub. NuVera is Shifamed’s sixth portfolio company to have a successful exit.

Other critical support was provided by partner Matthew Johnson and associate Teresa Napoli (Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation), partner Rachel Kleinberg (Tax), partner Angela Zambrano (Commercial Litigation), counsel Eric Hoffman (Labor), and partner Donielle McCutcheon (Healthcare).
