The Justice Department has a new Inspector General.

The US. Senate on Thursday confirmed the confirmation of Michael Horowitz. The Senate also confirmed Kathryn Keneally as Assistant Attorney General for the Tax Division.

“I’m confident Kathryn and Michael will provide strong leadership to the department, and will play an instrumental role in fulfilling our critical mission of protecting the American people,” said Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. in a statement. “Kathryn will be integral to our efforts to enforce our nation’s tax laws fully and fairly, and Michael will promote integrity, financial austerity and effectiveness in Department of Justice operations. They are both welcome additions to our senior leadership team.”

Keneally most recently worked as a partner at Fulbright & Jaworski LLP in New York.

The Justice Department said for over 25 years, Keneally represented clients in tax controversies and defended against allegations of tax, securities and bank fraud, money laundering, currency transaction reporting, false statements and other financial crime.

Horowitz was a  a partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham, & Taft LLP, where he focused on white collar defense, internal investigations and regulatory compliance.

From 2003 to 2009, Horowitz served as a commissioner for the U.S. Sentencing Commission. Before that,  Horowitz  worked for the Justice Department in the Criminal Division from 1999 to 2002.

Prior to joining the Criminal Division, he served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 1991 to 1999. From 1997 to 1999, he was chief of the Public Corruption Unit for the Southern District of New York. In 1995, he was awarded the Attorney General’s Award for Distinguished Service for his work on a five-year corruption investigation.
