Camille Vasquez became a celebrity in her own right during the six-week trial and her rapport with the Pirates of the Carribean star led to suggestions the pair were romantically linked.

The 37-year-old told People magazine the claims are "entirely, 100 per cent, unequivocally untrue."

"I guess it comes with the territory of being a woman just doing her job," she said. "It's disappointing that certain outlets kind of ran with it or said that my interactions with Johnny — who is a friend and I've known and represented for four-and-a-half years now — that my interactions in any way were inappropriate or unprofessional. That's disappointing to hear."

Vasquez had earlier confirmed that she was in a "happy relationship".

On her suggested relationship with the Dark Shadows actor, Vasquez said: "If I could provide any bit of comfort, then of course I would do that, whether it's holding his hand or letting him know that we were there and we were going to fight for him because he deserved it."

Brown Rudnick chair and CEO William Baldiga announced the news via a press release: "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.
