DePuy Class Action ASR Hip Replacement

The DePuy ASR Hip Class Action began in 2011 and was jointly conducted by Shine Lawyers and Maurice Blackburn Lawyers.


In March 2016 Shine Lawyers and Maurice Blackburn reached a conditional agreement with Johnson & Johnson and DePuy International to settle the DePuy ASR Hip Implant Class Action. On 29 June 2016, the Federal Court approved the settlement of the $250 million plus interest and including legal costs, without admission of liability by DePuy or Johnson & Johnson.

Shine Lawyers was a joint Administrator of the Settlement Scheme, and two South Australian law firms also assisted in the administration of the settlement. However as a result of orders made by the Federal Court on 6 June 2023, Maurice Blackburn is now the only Administrator and will continue to administrate the settlement until it is completed in 2024.

Further information relevant to the administration can be found at:  

Registration deadline

The registration deadline to participate in this settlement administration was 30 June 2023. Registrations have now closed. Under the amended Settlement Scheme, the Administrator does not have any discretion to accept any registrations after 30 June 2023 regardless of the circumstances.
