In 2022, Brown Rudnick was honored with the title of "Trials Group of the Year" by Law360, recognizing the firm's exceptional work in litigation. This accolade was bestowed upon the firm in light of two remarkable cases - Johnny Depp's highly publicized "trial of the century" and the lawsuit against MindGeek and Visa. Law360 commended Brown Rudnick for their legal efforts in the MindGeek case, stating that "the firm's continuous efforts in the MindGeek case utilize the law to address the prevalent global issue of human trafficking." The Depp trial was also highlighted, where the jury awarded Depp $15 million for defamation claims against Amber Heard.
The profile further highlighted Partner Ben Chew, who led the Brown Rudnick team, and emphasized that the judgment in Depp's favor was not vacated as part of the settlement. Camille Vasquez, who was promoted to partner after the trial, was also acknowledged in the profile. Vasquez recently accepted a position as a legal correspondent with NBC, but emphasized that she has no intention of leaving her legal practice.
Moreover, the profile recognized the work of partners Michael Bowe and Lauren Tabaksblat, who represent around 100 victims of sexual abuse in the MindGeek litigation in federal court. The partners conveyed to Law360 that their earlier work in litigation against a group of hedge funds accused of conspiring in a short-selling attack targeting Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd. motivated them to take up the case. Bowe commented that "BigLaw could take action to combat [human trafficking], but there is a void, and we saw that we could fill that void."
