The National Law Journal: Meet the DOJ Appellate Team Fighting AT&T’s Merger in the DC Circuit

August 01, 2018

The Department of Justice aims to continue its legal challenge to the AT&T-Time Warner merger following US District Judge Richard Leon’s rejection of the government’s claims that the merger would harm competition.

In preparation for the appeal, AT&T has hired Peter Keisler from Sidley Austin to join O’Melveny’s Dan Petrocelli, who successfully defended the merger in trial court. Both the Justice Department and AT&T “are bringing in appellate star power to make their case before the DC Circuit.”
