Fried Frank partner Michael R. Bromwich was selected this week by President Obama to lead the administration’s efforts in targeting corruption in the regulation and oversight of offshore oil drilling in the wake of the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

According to a firm press release, Bromwich will lead the effort to reform the Minerals Management Service, the agency of the U.S. Department of Interior charged with the management of the nation’s natural gas, oil and other mineral resources. He will be responsible for developing plans for a new oversight structure for environment and safety regulation.

Bromwich has been with Fried Frank since 1999. While at the firm, he has led a number of investigations involving a variety of organizations ranging from federal agencies to local police departments in Houston and Washington. Prior to joining Fried Frank, Bromwich served as inspector general for the Department of Justice from 1994 to 1999.
