Boeing named J. Michael Luttig, its general counsel, to a new position Wednesday, in which he will manage all legal matters associated with the two Boeing 737 Max crashes.

Luttig will continue to hold the title of executive vice president and will also be counselor and senior advisor to the aircraft manufacturer’s chairman, Dennis Muillenberg. He will also remain on the company’s executive council.

The company also announced the appointment of Brett Gerry to the position of general counsel.

Gerry, who joined Boeing in 2008, is currently president of Boeing Japan and will assume the new position immediately.

Boeing is currently under the microscope following the crashes of Lion Air Flight 610 last October and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 in March of this year.
