Johnny Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez has just scored a big promotion after beating Amber Heard in the Hollywood former couple’s defamation court battle.
Vasquez has just been named partner at her law firm Brown Rudnick.
She became an international star when she exposed Heard during cross-examination.
“I am delighted that Brown Rudnick has given me its full vote of confidence by having me join the partnership,” Vasquez said in a statement.
“I’m proud of the uniquely talented team I’ve had the privilege to lead, which exemplified teamwork and collaboration, and I look forward to continuing to represent Brown Rudnick’s culture of excellence.”
William Baldiga, chairman and CEO of Brown Rudnick, said: “We are delighted to welcome Camille to the partnership. Historically, we have reserved this announcement for the end of our fiscal year.
“But Camille’s performance during the Johnny Depp trial proved to the world that she was ready to take this next step now.
“We are incredibly proud of her and look forward to what she will accomplish as our newest partner.”
