Katlen­­burg-Lindau/ Hamburg — Taylor Wessing, led by Fran­k­­furt-based part­ners Hassan Sohbi (photo ) and Michael Sinhart, advi­sed Omni­Guide Holdings Inc, a leading US medi­cal tech­no­logy company, on the acqui­si­tion of LISA Laser Products OHG, a tech­no­logy leader in surgi­cal lasers based in Katlen­­burg-Lindau. The acqui­si­tion was also accom­pa­nied for Omni­Guide by the US commer­cial law firm Wilson Sonsini Good­rich & Rosati. The parties have agreed not to disc­lose details of the acquisition.

Omni­Guide specia­li­zes in the deve­lo­p­ment of medi­cal devices that use advan­ced laser tech­no­lo­gies to help remove tumors from pati­ents through precise surgi­cal proce­du­res while preser­ving healthy tissue. For its part, Omni­Guide is part of the port­fo­lio of Orbi­Med, a leading global invest­ment firm focu­sed on the health­care sector and head­quar­te­red in New York.

LISA Laser Products OHG, based in Katlen­­burg-Lindau, Germany, has in turn been regarded as a bench­mark for surgi­cal laser systems since its foun­da­tion in 1989, parti­cu­larly in the deve­lo­p­ment of holmium and thulium lasers. Espe­ci­ally in the field of urology, products deve­lo­ped by LISA-Laser and comple­men­tary products such as laser fibers, endo­sco­pes and access­ories have become an important form of therapy.

The acqui­si­tion enables the compa­nies to combine LISA Laser’s Thulium and Holmium laser tech­no­lo­gies with OmniGuide’s CO2 lasers in the inte­rest of successfully trea­ting patients.
