Foley Hoag LLP represented Abrams Capital in its $36 million investment in TransMedics, Inc., the global leader in organ preservation technology.

Abrams Capital is a Boston-based investment firm founded in 1999 that currently manages $5.7 billion. The firm’s investment strategy is opportunistic and follows a fundamental, value-oriented approach.

The investment in TransMedics will further the company’s mission of extending the life saving benefits of organ transplantation to patients suffering from end-stage organ failure through their Organ Care System (OCS™) Heart and Lung devices, which maintain donor organs in a near-physiologic and functioning condition from donor to transplant recipient.
