Michael R. Bromwich, a former federal prosecutor and inspector general for the Justice Department who is now a partner in the Washington office of a New York law firm, will head up efforts to restructure the former Minerals Management Service. Some have complained that Bromwich has little or no background with energy or environmental issues, according to the report.
