Bridgestone Invests in ClearMotion

We represented Bridgestone Americas in its investment in ClearMotion, a Boston-based company that is developing a system to help smooth out the ride for cars, especially autonomous vehicles. Bridgestone leaders will look to integrate ClearMotion’s products with the anti-vibration work being done at their Firestone Industrial Products division. Recently, ClearMotion closed a $100 million funding round led by a unit of JPMorgan as well as NEA, Qualcomm Ventures and others.
