Fried Frank litigation partner Michael Bromwich was named Tuesday to head up the Obama administration's effort to improve regulation of the oil industry following the Gulf of Mexico disaster. Bromwich, the Justice Department inspector general from 1994 to 1999, has been asked to develop a plan for a new oversight structure, the White House said. He is not being named to run Minerals Management Service directly. On May 28, Bureau of Land Management Director Bob Abbey was tapped as acting director of the MMS.
