Homburger advised Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) in its acquisition of Straub Medical AG

On April 20, 2020, BD announced that it has completed the acquisition of Straub Medical AG, a privately-held company that develops and sells medical atherectomy and thrombectomy devices that treat PAD and Venous disease.
