BP and the two other major culprits in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill—Transocean Ltd. and Haliburton Co.—have retained their legal teams, according to a report in the New York Times.

BP has brought on WilmerHale to fight the myriad of congressional investigations the company is facing for the ongoing ecological disaster. Leading the team for WilmerHale is Washington D.C. partner and practice head Jamie Gorelick, a former deputy attorney general of the United States under Bill Clinton and one-time lobbyist for BP.

The company that leased the exploded rig to BP, Transocean Ltd, has enlisted Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, and Halliburton has brought on Patton Boggs.

The Times said potential government inquiries include whether BP and the other companies “violated any regulations, whether they subverted the regulatory process by seeking favors with Minerals Management Service or other Interior employees, or whether BP acted criminally by keeping away cameras that could have revealed earlier the extent of the spill.”
