The year was 1997 when the exciting news broke. Johnson & Johnson, ranked 39th on the Fortune 500, would make its first entry into the Israeli market with a $427 million purchase of Biosense.

Yet, none of this would be possible if Biosense did not fiercely claim and defend their burgeoning patent portfolio. In doing so, they retained the preeminent local firm for IP protection – Kligler & Associates.
