It read: “Brown Rudnick is pleased to announce that Camille Vasquez has been elevated to partner.
“Vasquez joined Brown Rudnick’s Orange County office in 2018 as an associate in the Litigation and Arbitration practice. She has more than 10 years of experience as a trial lawyer in high-stakes disputes, including defamation cases, contract disputes, business-related torts and employment-related claims.
“Vasquez was a key member of the litigation team that won a jury verdict on June 1, 2022, for actor Johnny Depp in his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.”
The Chairman and CEO of the company, William Baldiga, also commented on the lawyer’s promotion, writing: “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.”
Responding to the development, Vasquez commented: “I am delighted that Brown Rudnick has given me its full vote of confidence by having me join the partnership.
“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.”
