NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Johnny Depp’s attorney, Camille Vasquez, has become a partner at his law firm Brown Rudnick after winning a major victory last week in the actor’s defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard.

International law firm Brown Rudnick announced Vasquez’s promotion on Tuesday after she became a star in the Depp v. Heard with her incisive cross-examination of the “Aquaman” actress.

“I am thrilled that Brown Rudnick has given me their vote of confidence by having me join the partnership,” Vasquez said in a statement. “I am proud of the uniquely talented team I had the privilege of leading, which exemplified teamwork and collaboration, and I look forward to continuing to represent Brown Rudnick’s culture of excellence. .”

Depp supporters clamored for her promotion online after she became an internet sensation. Vasquez, 37, expertly grilled Heard on the stand, pressing her on numerous inconsistencies in her testimony in often testy exchanges.

Rumors also swirled that Vasquez was secretly dating Depp after the couple hugged at the Fairfax County Courthouse – but these turned out to be untrue. The lawyer is dating WeWork executive Edward Owen.

The 38-year-old Briton met Vasquez in November at London’s gastropub The Cow, according to the DailyMail. Her budding relationship with Owen, who lives in England, is long distance.

The couple were spotted leaving the Ritz-Carlton on Thursday in McLean, Va. – a day after a jury awarded Depp $10.35million in his defamation case against his ex-wife.

The seven-member panel, which witnessed an explosive two-month trial, also awarded Heard $2 million in its counterclaim against Depp.

Vasquez, who specializes in litigation and arbitration, is based at the firm’s office in Orange County, California.

She was part of a large team of lawyers on the case, but played a leading role alongside veteran lawyer Ben Chew. Vasquez, a graduate of Southwestern Law School, joined Brown Rudnick as an associate in 2018, according to the firm’s website.

Company CEO William Baldiga said new partners are usually announced at the end of the financial year, but they departed from that tradition in light of last week’s win.
