He will be a member of the firm's securities litigation and white collar defense group, where he will focus on corporate internal investigations, compliance, monitoring and white-collar criminal defense.

Bromwich joins Goodwin from the U.S. Department of the Interior, where he was director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation & Enforcement (BOEMRE), in the midst of the BP oil spill.
