DOJ Hires Big Gun (Outside Lawyer) to Try AT&T/T-Mobile

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

According to Bloomberg, DOJ Antitrust has hired Glenn Pomerantz, a partner at Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP, to block the merger.

I think that hiring an outside lawyer to litigate the case is a signal that DOJ expects to litigate this case out and not settle.  As I am teaching an antitrust mergers class this spring, AT&T/T-Mobile should be a highlight of my course.
