June 22, 2012

NEW YORK, June 22, 2012 — Covington & Burling advised Ascom Holding AG in its acquisition of GE Healthcare’s nurse call medical device business.

Ascom Holding AG is a Swiss public company specializing in wireless on-site communication solutions and network testing products and services. GE Healthcare, the Healthcare division of General Electric Company, is one of the leading nurse call suppliers in the U.S. and Canadian market.

The Covington team was led by Philipp Tamussino and Courtney Heizenrader, and included Harry Hives (tax), Ellen Flannery and Afia Asamoah (FDA regulatory), Kathleen Gallagher-Duff (trademarks), Chris Beals (IP), Michael Francese (employee benefits) and Bert Wells (insurance).
