Subsequent to $13B merger with Biomet, Zimmer to cut staff and close dental headquarters

By Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP

In anticipation of the upcoming merger of Zimmer and Biomet, Zimmer is preparing to shut down its dental headquarters in Carlsbad, California. The upcoming $13 billion merger will result in many other layoffs as well. The acquisition which is expected to be finalized in mid-June will consolidate the two dental operations into a single unit. The consolidation and resulting layoffs are set to be finalized in about one year.

We continue to actively litigate metal-on-metal hip implant cases, including Zimmer Durom Cup and Biomet M2a. Whether you have had multiple revisions or have not had any revisions we will investigate your case to determine its merit. We are currently litigating cases in state and federal court and will file suit in your case in the forum most favorable to your case where jurisdiction is adequate.

Knee implant litigation against Zimmer has been expanding. We have filed suit in a number of Nexgen Knee cases, where loosening developed due to its design to facilitate an expanded range of motion. Additionally, we are investigating a number of other Zimmer Knee implants, most notably the Zimmer Persona Knee implant. The Persona implant was recalled in March 2015, due to loosening issues. Please see our Zimmer knee implant page for more information on Zimmer’s various implants.
