Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez has her own victory

Published

on

The lawyer behind Johnny Depp’s successful court battle against ex-wife Amber Heard has quickly been promoted by the law firm she works for

Camille Vasquez caught the world’s attention when she started representing the actor, emerging as a major player in the trial.

Law firm Brown Rudnick, where Vasquez works, has announced they have accelerated their employee from associate to partner.

It comes less than a week after she helped Johnny Depp secure a $15 million dollar payday, after the jury largely ruled in the actor’s favour.

It’s no secret Vasquez was the public face of Depp’s legal team over the course of the six week trial.

While the team representing Depp consisted of nine other attorneys, none were adored by the millions watching along at home like her.

Cross examining Heard, Vasquez then used her closing arguments to tell the jurors it was actually Heard who had been the abuser in the relationship.

In a statement, Brown Rudnick says the attorney’s performance during the Johnny Depp trial proved to the world that she is ready to take this next step now.

Vasquez says she is delighted to have the firms’ “full vote of confidence.”

The title of partner generally includes an ownership stake, more money and greater influence.

China initiated military ‘punishment’ exercises in the waters surrounding Taiwan in response to the newly inaugurated President Lai Ching-te.

These drills come amid escalating tensions in the region, with Beijing asserting its sovereignty over Taiwan, denouncing the inauguration of President Lai Ching-te and labelling this one of several “separatist acts”, as reported by Reuters.

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.

President Lai has repeatedly offered talks with China but has been rebuffed.

He says only Taiwan’s people can decide their future, and rejects Beijing’s sovereignty claims.
