Global law firm White & Case LLP has advised The Carlyle Group on its acquisition of Tescan Orsay Holding (Tescan), a leading manufacturer of electron microscopes and other high-tech scientific instruments, headquartered in the Czech Republic.
"This is another excellent example of White & Case's expertise advising financial sponsors on complex cross-border transactions in the technology space," said White & Case partner Ken Barry, who co-led the Firm's deal team.
